    No, there isn't a public API, and WhatsApp is planning to add a bunch of additional security to prevent third-party clients from working.

    So, no, it won't be possible to make a third-party client.

    I'm not a dev but aren't there older API's that are working on older phones in other countries? Why can't we piggyback on those?

    All of those clients will be blocked by WA's servers as of 1/1/2017.

    Seems like you're misinformed. Those unofficial clients are blocked already. Since 2014, WA has been throwing out Cease&Desists to unofficial clients which has led to the disappearance of a whole lof them on GitHub and not being able to log in anymore in the clients. Some users of those apps also noticed their account got blocked by WA.

    My understanding (though I have no personal knowledge) was that there was at least one client that was still working. But, yes, WA has been aggressively shutting down third-party clients for a couple of years, as they NEVER had a public API and those clients were using hacked APIs. But WA has announced that they'll be implementing some additional security at the client level and will be using the servers to block all older/non-authorized clients.

    Better move to telegram,jabber or any free protocol, and the most important to learn the lesson and avoid using privative/commercial protocols in future.

    Anyway sooner or later all people will hate WA as it happened before with microsoft.

    The only problem is that we will be the first ones

    "The best" is a subjective thing. What you find the best doesn't mean that others also find it the best.

    I, for example, disagree with you. I tried Telegram last year and I don't like it at all, I prefer BB10 and Twitter DM's for communicating (or good 'ol SMS, if needed).

    Disa has a WhatsApp plugin on Android that still works, so it's possible.

    A plug-in is not the same as a dedicated WA client. They silently permit plug-ins, at least for the time being.

    Just like the man said that "best" is subjective, "better" is also subjective. Because it is best or better for you, it does not hold that everyone will share your view.

    Best for me would be something open, free, standard..
    At the moment I think that there is nothing like that because even telegram is based in a centralized server dependant on a company.

    Jabber was amazing but it is associated to an server account of a phone number...

    I don't use 'em myself but you could have a look at Linphone and ChatSecure (both available in Snap/Play Store). Both free and open source and a focus on security (esp. ChatSecure).
    And as far as standards go: ChatSecure is available for Android and iOS and Linphone is available for Android, iOS, Windows Phone, Windows (desktop), Mac, Linux and also has a Web client.

    What's the point? None of em has the same number of subscribers as whatsapp. Lets face it, there's no way people are going to install another bunch of applications just to communicate with us!

    I know. But the person I responded to was specifically asking for a real open source alternative so probably doesn't care about the amount of subscribers, else he/she wouldn't be asking a question *specifically* about a real open source alternative.

    Next time please read the post I respond to before replying. Thanks in advance.

    Ok, my bad, I am sorry if I had got you confused. My comment was not just limited to the open source alternatives. I was asking you in regards with the forum topic ( Whatsapp). In general, what's the point in having all the apps around the world, if none of our beloved ones are in it?
