WhatsApp On Windows Phone Gets An Update

joeb

Joe Belfiore has sent a tweet out which should please a lot of Windows Phone users. The WhatsApp client for WP7 and 8 has finally received an update.
WhatsApp has a huge user base, and the previous version was apparently very sub-par compared to versions on other platforms, but the new version, 2.10.488.0, brings the following improvements: (According to WPCentral)

•Initiate voice calls from within the app
•Background API allows you to play music
•New smileys
•Fixed notifications for users
•Users can now see smileys on the double wide tile
•Fast resume (If the app is open and you click on the incoming notification it opens as fast as on Android)
•On start-up, it now asks if you want to back up your chat history. You can also do this through settings.
•Large images shown

Personally I am yet to use WhatsApp, but if you are one of the estimated 400 million people who use the messenger app (and have a Windows Phone) or you wish to try it, CLICK HERE to go to the Windows Phone store.
