Facebook-owned Whatsapp appears to be working on a web-based version. A number of strings were found in the Android version of the app that point to a web-based Whatsapp. However, since Whatsapp doesn't use accounts, and is instead tied to a phone number, there is the issue of authentication. It appears that Whatsapp on the web may solve this with QR codes.

Yesterday, the popular messaging service WhatsApp had two updates: one was server side and the other was an actual app update. Although bugs and fixes were listed in the changelog, as it turns out much was included than previously thought.

WhatsApp now included detailed 'seen' and 'read' information for messages you sent to either individuals or groups. In fact, for groups it will show who read the message and at what time, alongside who has not yet read your message (but the time it was delivered to them).

The popular messaging app WhatsApp has been quiet lately for updates on Windows Phone. In fact, it has not been updated since the end of June, which is a very long time in technology. The good news is the private beta was receiving updates at a steady clip, including one yesterday.

The latest version of WhatsApp beta is 2.11.574.0 and with it are a few new features that have been added over the last few months. Here is your first look.

If you're a big fan of WhatsApp, you'll want to head into the Windows Phone Store to go grab version 2.11.500, which just went live a few minutes ago. Like the previous update, this one does not deliver any new features exactly, but rather gains "various enhancements and bug fixes". In other words, this is some cleanup after the big update a few weeks ago.

It was just a few days ago that WhatsApp received not only a bug fix, but a smorgasbord of new features to quell the angry masses of messaging fiends. That update was version 2.11.490.0 of the popular messaging client and late tonight a small patch has just been pushed out bumping WhatsApp to a modest 2.11.494; to put that in perspective that is slightly ahead of the private beta, which stands at 2.11.492.

Can you feel that? It’s Friday, which means we’re about to go have fun for the weekend, but there may be a WhatsApp update in store for us shortly. Microsoft’s Joe Belfiore took to Twitter again to calm the surging masses who want their WhatsApp back. In the brief tweet, Belfiore noted that they have worked with the WhatsApp team and that the fix should be here “quite soon”. To our ears that sounds like some last minute certification is occurring, meaning we may have something by this weekend (or earlier).

What’s up? WhatsApp is still not available for those to download from the Windows Phone Store. Late April, we reported that WhatsApp for Windows Phone was broken with no fix in sight. A few weeks after that, WhatsApp was pulled from the Store. Microsoft later clarified that they were working with WhatsApp on a fix. Now we have an update on the situation from Microsoft. Details after the break.

It was only last week when we learned that Ngram, an unofficial Telegram Messenger app, would become the official one, receiving approval from the Telegram team. Fast forward a few days and the changeover has now occurred in the Store, as the links to Ngram show the re-branded app as Telegram Messenger Beta v 0.14.5.27.

The whole story started a few months ago when the Telegram team decided to open source their app development in a pseudo-contest, letting numerous Telegram clone apps onto the Store (see app our roundup). Presumably the one that they liked the most becomes re-branded as the official app for Windows Phone. It’s a cool use of the talented Windows Phone developer pool, and we wish more companies would take such opportunities.

WhatsApp, the incredibly popular instant messaging service recently purchased by Facebook for almost $20 bilion, is offline at the moment. So, yeah, it's not just you. It's the WhatsApp servers. There's no word yet on how long the outage will last, so let us know in the comments whether it's working for you yet, and if not, when it starts working again!
