Dealing with WhatsApp Non-Responsive App on Android and iOS
WhatsApp is a great app for real time communication, whether via text message or VoIP calls. For many of us, its the easiest way to stay in touch with friends or call loved ones overseas while avoiding costly mobile phone roaming charges.
Too often when you’re on a WhatsApp call, it suddenly says “Call on Hold”, or even worse – WhatsApp freezes. This can happen after a few seconds or in the middle of the conversation without prior warning – all you can hear are those beeps, and then… silence.
We want you to know you aren’t alone in this issue. Read below for a fast and easy fix for WhatsApp freezing.
Why Is My WhatsApp Freezing? What Can I Do to Fix That?
There are multiple reasons why your WhatsApp can become non-responsive and freeze; the main ones are:
- out of date app installed on your smartphone
- software conflicts with other apps on your Android or iPhone
- insufficient storage space on Android
- Internet connection that is not reliable – keeps on disconnecting or is very slow.
Most of the times it’s your Internet! WhatsApp calls require a good amount of bandwidth from your Internet connection to work properly.
Here are some solutions to fix WhatsApp freezing:
- check your Internet connection and speed
- see if the WhatsApp service is down or not
- restart WhatsApp
- update WhatsApp and your operating system
- clear the WhatsApp cache
- reinstall WhatsApp
- restart your smartphone
- restart your router / Internet source
Most often Internet connection is too slow and doesn’t have enough bandwidth for a VoIP HD audio call. Also, if the connection is flaky, you may be experiencing excessive packet loss. What’s worse, is that both of these issues are often amplified when you are on the move. Mobile devices can not seamlessly transition between different Wi-Fi networks or cell towers. When this happens, it will interrupt apps and drop Internet VoIP calls, such as the ones on WhatsApp.
WhatsApp Not Responding on Android or iOS Because of a Bad Internet Connection? Speedify Fixes That!
By default, mobile devices are designed to only use one Internet connection at a time – Wi-Fi or cellular data. This happens even though both connections are active. What if you could use BOTH connections at once, for their combined speed and reliability?
Speedify is a channel bonding service that changes the way your mobile device connects to the Internet. Instead of just using one connection at a time, Speedify allows your smartphone or tablet to connect to the Internet over both Wi-Fi and mobile data simultaneously. This instantly increases your connection bandwidth and reliability and provides a better and uninterrupted WhatsApp VoIP call experience. You won’t get the slightest “call on hold” or freezing issues.
Speedify also monitors the quality of your Internet connections with its automatic failover protection capabilities. When it detects that a signal is weak or that the network is too slow, it will automatically and seamlessly reroute the data through the other working connection. Best of all, when the other connection is back online and reliable, it begins using it again – automatically and in the background. Say goodbye to frequent WhatsApp freezing!
The app is also smart enough to try and send as much data as possible through Wi-Fi instead of over more expensive mobile data connections – saving you from potential overage fees from your carrier!
