WhatsApp is the most used chatting service in the world and although there are alternatives like Telegram, users seem to stick with the Facebook related service for now. Apart from some other apps, WhatsApp is regularly updated on Windows Phone and there is even a closed Beta where the team working on this app is testing new features with a small amount of people. Just a couple of days ago there was anew version of WhatsApp available in the app store, however, today you can check for updates and you’llbe able to download version 2.12.276.0.
Gladly WhatsApp is not following Microsoft when it comes to included changelogs with app updates. Although it is not entirely clear if the changelog which came with this update had been included in the previous update already.
Here are the changes which have been implemented according to the changelog:
- You can now record tap and hold to record video on the in-app camera
- The in-app camera captures photos faster
- Over 100 new emoji
It is good to see the team behind WhatsApp working on the Windows Phone version beside the one for Android and iOS. Especially tap and hold to record a video is a nice new feature but also the new Emojis and the ability to capture photos even faster is cool. Feel free to drop me comment below with your opinion on WhatsApp for Windows Phone and stay tuned for more Microsoft related news in the future.
