whatsapp estimations

How much would it cost to develop an app similar to WhatsApp?

WhatsApp is not just a text messenger anymore. It now allows users to have audio and video calls, post Statuses updates similar to Instagram's Stories, share Location with friends, and much more.

Obviously, you might not need all those additional features, so feel free to check only those that you would like to be included in the estimation.

hourly rate

Let's select an hourly rate first:

${{hourlyRate}} per hour

This is a rate for a team of beginner developer and trainees. The price will be cheaper. However, it can take longer to finish a project.

This is an hourly rate for a team of Junior developers. They already have some experience, and they will feel more confident working on a project alone. It will take slightly more time but will allow you to save some money.

Intermediate level. These are strong developers, who have enough experience to finish the average projects without any problems.

Team with a mix of intermediate developers and seniors. Most experienced developers will help with architecture, optimization, and will guide others to help you make the best of your idea.

A team of senior developers. There is nothing they can't do. Expensive, but the result will be top notch, we guarantee it.
