Fans of the popular WhatsApp messaging app on Windows Phone can download a new update today, but it's not currently clear what's new. The change log in the Windows Store is an old one, so this may be a minor update for the app.

Officially, the new version number for WhatsApp on Windows Phone is 2.12.212. A couple of our readers have indicated that there is a new user interface for the camera and starred message support in this new version but we have been unable to confirm this. If you do notice these changes, and any others with the new WhatsApp update, please let us know in the comments and we will update the post.

Update: Here is what we know so far

  • Starring - You can now long press on a message to 'star' it, which is just a fancy way of saying favorite. Under Featured Messages you can see these bookmarked snippets
  • Camera interface updated for snapping photos within the app
  • Updated video and photo upload interface

Thanks to everyone who tipped us!
