    "I have a lot of friends in the U.S. since I stayed there for a few months of being an exchanged student. I still wanted to keep in touch and learned that most students use whatsapp for socializing. So I tried to look for an app where I could get free US number for Whatsapp. Hushed so far has been so helpful since I got to create an account, and I can make unli texts and calls for free soo it's really cool! 😍😍😍"

    "Okay so I heard about this app called Talkatone from my best friend because she told me that it helped her get a US number for whatsapp, (she uses it so she can talk with her mom.)and living here in europe kinda makes it hard to interact using whatsapp because its just quite pricey. Anyway, if you have a US number, you can make unlimited calls anytime and yeah, talkatone can be of help since it's also a free US phone number app! 😬"

    "My boyfriend and I are in a long distance relationship. I'd love talking to him via voice message or sometimes video call. This is what he told me to download, the text me app that works pretty well here in Asia. Now I'm planning to get a US number so I can use whatsapp instead to talk with him everyday."

DID YOU KNOW?

Did you know that WhatsApp can be used to compress photos and videos? If there's no photo editing app available on the device to shrink the sizes of your media files, then WhatsApp can do the trick. The user can send the set of images and videos to their contacts or even to his or herself using the app. Then go to the WhatsApp Media folder on Android, or Camera Roll for iOS users. In the said folders, you can find the compressed variations of the files. This compression method works if a decrease in quality of the picture or video is a non-issue for the user.

A great messaging app, WhatsApp even got better after the 19 billion dollar deal with social media giant Facebook. That's why there's no doubt why it is the leading messenger app in the world in 2018. WhatsApp can do more than just connecting people all over the globe. Certain features are hard to find in other communication apps, like backing up messages and downloading videos. Of course, these features cannot be experienced if you have no account on the app. Signing up is easy though as it only needs to connect to your phone number. And with the help of some of the best apps to get a US mobile number to create a WhatsApp account, the process will get easier. Additionally, you can also ensure that your number is still secure from breaches.

    "textplus was quite confusing at first because of the subscription part, but once I got to familiarize myself with its interface and what it can do, I started to like it! ❤️ I was looking for tutorials on how to get US number for whatsapp and read a review on the web that someone used it and she sounded like she was satisfied so I tried it as well. And yeah I got to experience the same thing, got my US number and have been doing calls to my cousins living in the united states. Indeed a great app to keep in touch !"

    "As far as I know, this is not an app to get US number. This is just basically for protecting your privacy by creating a second number and burn the number when you're done using it, so it's just for creating temporary numbers. My friend is using it whenever he makes business interactions, and I am not sure if it can be used to get a US number for whatsapp."
