Why people keep sending messages ? if a phone call via whatsapp costs nothing? this is inadmissible, this is absolutely a pity, this is a disgrace for all of us. We need to hear the pals, to feel they are there, that they are not bots
I like being able to choose when I respond to someone, which messaging allows. With a phone call, it's either take it right then or send it to voicemail, and voicemail is generally more cumbersome than a message.
I suspect the people I message feel the same way.
And if you need to talk, the message can be, "Give me a call when you get a moment."
