In an interview with AllThingsD, WhatsApp's head of business development Neeraj Arora dismissed all the rumors saying that the company is not entertaining any offers from Google, or anyone else.

 

This news makes me quite happy as I use WhatsApp almost more than my standard text messaging app to keep in contact with friends and family who are overseas. TweakTown wants to know how much you use third party text messaging applications like WhatsApp. Let us know in the comments below.
