The development of technology makes teachers easy to handle the class. One of the technologies is WhatsApp (WA). WA can be used as one of media to teach speaking, writing, reading, and listening. Here the teacher determines the materials and divides the class into some groups. As the admin of WA Groups, the teacher makes a WA group consisting of 4 students. Each student has to record his or her voice both in group and individual. The materials the students have to record are taken from their own creativity where they have to produce based on their teacher’s instruction. Other materials can be taken from English text, such as storytelling, recount, and others that can be presented in group or in individual. The students have to upload their recordings previously, namely a day, before the class begins. The teacher has to check each WA group and remind those who have not uploaded their recordings yet. To make sure that what is recorded really belongs to the students, each of them has to perform it in front of the class. The students that belong to the same group give comments and suggestions for the material and performance and so does the teacher. The comments and suggestions have to be kept in mind so that the next material and performance will be better. The evaluation is done by process. Keywords: WhatsApp, WhatsApp Group, speaking, teaching speaking
