WhatsApp quickly releases patch to address recent update issues
WhatsApp received quite the update earlier today, but users quickly complained that the release was buggy and hampered the messaging experience. The team have quickly turned things around by releasing a subsequent patch to hopefully address issues raised in version 2.11.586.
Users reported crash issues soon after updating, resorting in re-installing the app to sort everything out. This latest version is now 2.11.587, which should squash said bugs. Give it a download and let us know if all is well once again in the realm of WhatsApp.
Thanks to everyone who tipped us!

A tip uninstalling and then NOT restoring the backup/chats makes it twice as fast compared to restoring the backup.
Tried it myself!
And its good to go
Cheers to WhatsApp team, it makes me happy when i see people working for Windows phone platform....as this is the future of mobile os...i love wp, and also WhatsApp.
Overall the whatsapp is really improving day by day....
Thanks guys, keep up the good work.
However, if I try to select and send more than one photo, the WhatsApp share option disappears. Facebook and Facebook Beta both show up, as does OneDrive. So it isn't an API limitation. Just a WhatsApp one!
Facebook Beta and OneDrive both work without issue....Whatsapp doesn't.
That is frustrating for me, because that means I can't just go to my starred/favourited photos in the photo hub and share them. I instead have to go via the WhatsApp photo selector (which doesn't include the 'favourite' photos tab)...and then trawl through all my photos in order to share the ones I want.
It's annoying, and not the way things operate on iOS and Android. Given that we've waited 4 months for this update, I think it's reasonable to expect WhatsApp (as a photo sharing messaging app) to support such things as sharing photos direct from the photo hub. So yes, I have a valid point.
1. When you're waiting for the "email chat history" it doesn't show you a progress it just lets you work
2. Can we select multiple messages?
1. We could send and recieve pre recorded mp3.
2. Previous status should be there.
3.lastly the annoying vibration in between the chats should have a option to turn off.
2. A prompt on the "backup" setting to ensure the user wants to override backup
3. Cortana integration
4. Progress bar for emailing chat history Other than that, this update is excellent. The best update for WhatsApps to date and brings it on par to Android/iOS. :)
Any idea When it will be updated.
Hope this may help.
1.The option to mute groups for an year is really great.
2. Different backgrounds for different chats is another boon.
3. The refreshed UI is also interesting and actually refreshing!
something that I always wanted. Lucky I waited till the bug patch arrived....dint loose any data.
I reinstalled the app when the second update came out today - and it had been working throughout the afternoon...
How does Whatsapp manage to mess these things up so consistently?!
I'm definitely regretting updating
