WhatsApp released a new update over the weekend which includes some nifty features such as rich link previews, ability to peek and pop chats using 3D Touch on iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, and redesigned settings screen.
WhatsApp users with an iPhone have yet another reason to update to iOS 9.1. After installing Apple’s latest update, you’ll find added Quick Reply functionality, allowing you to reply to messages without having to open the WhatsApp app.
WhatsApp is one of the most popular cross-platform messaging apps for iOS. If you’re a long time user of the app, you must be aware that WhatsApp allows you to select a custom wallpaper for chat backgrounds. You can choose from any of the default wallpapers that come with the app or choose a photo from your Camera Roll. If you wish to enjoy more high-quality wallpapers then you should check out WhatsApp Wallpapers.
WhatsApp started rolling out the WhatsApp Web feature at the beginning of this year. However, at that time, it was available only for Android users.
WhatsApp had said that the web client wasn’t available for the iPhone due to “platform limitations.” iPhone users had to rely on jailbreaking to use the web client on the desktop with the iPhone.
Earlier this year, WhatsApp launched its much anticipated voice calling feature for Android, iOS and Windows Phone users. Since WhatsApp is primarily used in many emerging markets like India, the company has optimised its voice calling feature to make sure that it works well even on low-bandwith 2G connections.
WhatsApp Messenger has become one of the most popular messaging apps on the planet, and the latest update adds even more functionality to the service.
While WhatsApp is an effective way of keeping in touch with your friends and relatives, it can get frustrating when you start receiving a stream of spam messages from an unknown person. This is why iOS developer Ibrahim Sammour has produced a new jailbreak tweak known as WA ShutUp to save you from this frustation.
