What’s up?! Not much, just WhatsApp returning to the Windows Phone Store. After going MIA, the popular messaging app has returned. Not only has it returned, but it’s been updated. Earlier today, Microsoft’s Joe Belfiore said the app would be coming ‘quite soon’. This does qualify as fairly soon! Details after the break.
Head into the Windows Phone Store and you’ll find version 2.11.490.0 of WhatsApp sitting there. Here’s what’s new in this update:
- Chat backgrounds
- Broadcast lists
- Privacy settings (settings > account > privacy)
- Media auto-download settings (settings > chat settings > media auto-download)
- Custom notification tones (Windows Phone 8 Update 3 required)
- Various enhancements and bug fixes
Not only does the app return, but it comes with a few new features. Chat backgrounds have been added, there are privacy settings, control the auto-download of media, custom notifications are there and more!
Heads up, those on Windows Phone 8.1 will get a warning message saying some features won't work properly.
Grab the update for WhatsApp and let us know what you think!
Thanks for the tip Stuart!
