WhatsApp for Windows Phone gets ability to send pre-recorded videos and multiple images in latest update

We’ve been teasing you folks about WhatsApp for Windows Phone, specifically features that were being tested in the private beta. What are those new features? Just the ability to send pre-recorded videos and up to 10 images at once.

Luckily for you, version 2.11.340 of WhatsApp for the general public just went live in the Store and it has those aforementioned features, plus the usual bug fixes.

WhatsApp 2.11.340

  • Send pre-recorded videos
  • Send multiple images at once
  • Save received videos
  • Migrate WhatsApp account to a new phone number
  • Bug fixes and speed improvements

The ability to send videos has been in WhatsApp for quite some time, but an OS limitation prevented the app from accessing the media library to fetch pre-recorded videos. Since early 2013 though, Nokia has been working with the WhatsApp developers and it looks like it paid off to have friends in high places. Through Nokia’s assistance (and indirectly, Microsoft’s), WhatsApp now has permission to grab videos from your library to send to friends. That’s a lot easier than having to shoot videos on the fly and makes the app more on par with Android and iOS.

The other new feature is the ability to send multiple images per message. Previously, you had to attach a single image per message, meaning if you wanted to send five photos, you had to head into your media library five separate times. With version 340 of WhatsApp, you can just go in once and attach up to 10 photos (which should be more than enough for most of you).

Videos received from a contact should also be able to be saved to your phone directly and there should be a new Album called ‘WhatsApp’, making it easier to find things once you have received them.

Finally, the ability to migrate your WhatsApp account to another phone number is present under settings.

Other additions to this update include the usual bug fixes and speed improvements, which are always nice to have.

Version 2.11.340 of WhatsApp is very fresh to the Store, so if you don’t see the update, try back in a short-time. Pick up WhatsApp for Windows Phone here with this link or scan the QR code below.

Thanks, Elias H. and Nik for the tips!

  • Finally wp is getting a better! Edit: New update isn't live yet Daniel :P Edit2: Now available :)
  • I got it
  • Not yet here..
  • i yet here
  • Finally thanx WhatsApp dev's :)
  • Update is available here, Brazil :) 
  • Same here. USA. I am excited for this update. I always felt stupid having to take a live video after I already captured something with the Nokia Camera app.
  • I m getting frustated now for the first time with whats app I was trying to access my last nights groups message there were all about 900 messages which were accessible on android phone and in wp8 it kept on crashing when I tried to access the past message comeone this is really frustating
  • But still i didn't get that new WhatsApp album :/
  • Im just guessing but i think it'll probably appear the first time you receive a picture, or video.
  • Yeah. I dont see any such album either.
  • Once after updating if someone sends you an i mage it goes in to WhatsApp filder
    i found it
    its labelled 'WhatsApp ' in the photos section
  • Awesomeness continues :)
    WP just keeps on giving :)
    Very excited about this :)
  • Alright, so the video saving feature and upload feature works like a charm and there's a new folder dedicated to WhatsApp which is very convenient :) Also, the app feels much faster and way more responsive! Seriously :)
  • It feels faster .. Oh wait, still updating .. deffinitely slower download.
  • How to save videos sent by others? Help please
  • Long press the video. An option to save pops up.
  • Thanks
  • I don't get any option to save videos.
  • So many big changes going on windows platform..:) :)
  • I hope this wasn't what you hinted at on Twitter haha
  • No update when I checked. I'll try again in about an hour.
  • I got the update :)
  • here neither :/
  • patience is a virtue :P
  • Update received, it's strange I used to get the updates on time .-.
  • Just checked and she was there waiting. Thanks for the heads up. I agree. My 928 on Verizon hasn't been late to the party thus far. This is a first.
  • I wish the text messaging app would let me send 10 images at once (or even 2)
  • And I wish you could look at all the pics sent by that person by just swiping left or right.
  • Contact info in whatsapp --> swipe left to media
    All media sent between both parties are there
  • When i tap on an image my frined sent me,and then swipe left or right,i can see all the old images sent by that person.I dont know if its a new feature in the latest version or if it was always there.If it was always there,i dont understand why i never noticed it before
  • Helpful.thanx
  • When i tap on an image my frined sent me,and then swipe left or right,i can see all the old images sent by that person.I dont know if its a new feature in the latest version or if it was always there.If it was always there,i dont understand why i never noticed it before.
  • Also you can send more than one pic.
  • Update is available....
  • Nice update.
  • No update yet!
  • Great update I use whatsapp a lot.
  • Not live yet.
  • Try changing your region to UK.
  • No help. Shall wait anyways...
    Edit: got it now, with default settings
  • So , how many more features do we missed behind iOS ?
  • Not sure about how many, but I would like to see the ability to remove the time stamp. That being said, these new features such as being able to send pre-recorded videos are great for us WP users.
  • I'm probably gonna get boo'ed but man, I wish Whatsapp allowed us to set a background or at least have a default background. The black background gets boring after some time (and that's two years in my case)
  • Booooo x925
  • Probably in two months it may come at the rate these guys are updating :)
  • Isn`t that an OS limitation again?Can that too be overcome?
  • Don't see why it would be a limitation. eBay, Viber allow you to do that
  • I also want a change in backgrounds. The homology on WP is extremely silly to me.
  • Agreed!
  • And that's one of the things I like the most. I use the black background when ever I can. It looks simple, classy and uncluttered. Even when I had android I used a dark background. I agree it's nice to have the option to change since it clearly doesn't appeal to every user.
  • No booing here. I wish for the same. Whatsapp was beautiful on my iPad 2.... (yeah I used the iPhone trick) :-) It feels awkward admitting to owning an iPad for some reason. I didn't pay for her.... She was a gift.
  • lol you're like:
    don't blame me! we all make mistakes :P
  • :-)
  • I think it's weirder that it has a gender. Does "she" take the pill or did you buy her an IUD?
  • Pill
  • Change your theme to light then.
  • Best app ever!
  • Yes, its the best, i found that you can run whatsapp on pc, try this
  • This explains why Vine doesn't allow you to upload pre-recorded videos. No friends in high places. I hope they make some. Need ability to add music and slow mo vines.
  • I would settle for having a half-decent video-editing tool on Windows Phone.
  • guess they could if they tried to get the permissions for that IMO ,they too are part of the Nokia collection.Possibly an update is on its way,fingers crossed ;)
  • I guess that is why Whatsapp moved under the Nokia Apps. there, they are open to more APIs, like the video editing thing. from nokia. Edit: Also Instagram is there, so same might happen soon.
  • And people will keep complaining about no custom background...
  • I wasn't complaining or at least not whining, I was just sayin'…
  • The custom background is beautiful. It feels dull without it. The UX is comparable without the custom background, but it is certainly nice to have.
  • Is that a cartoon pic of Kevin M? Was that generated by a WP app? I've seen good ones on Android, would love one for WP.
  • +920!!!!!
  • I only want a new ui with backgrounds..
  • 8.1...
  • New profile pic for dan !  
  • I want this feature on 6tag and 6sec. Please Rudy!
  • For that Rudy needs to have connections with nokia or his apps need to be part of the Nokia collection which at the moment they aren`t...
  • If it was a OS limitation, and now they already solved it, why other apps can't do the same? Nokia and Microsoft need to let other apps to do the same, otherwise we won't have a full experience on a WP. I don't have network everytime I want to post a Vine or video on Instagram, so a feature that allows you to save and than upload videos is important. Hope that Rudy get's in touch with MS and Nokia, to add this feature to is apps.
  • It isn't an os limitation. It's just you need special permissions to access the programming libraries needed. This is a simplified version but that's the gist of it. I don't know why WPCental keeps perpetuating this myth.
  • Awesome..keep it coming...
  • Thanks for sharing :)
  • Update won't install! Only me?
  • Did you ever had the new chat wouldn't show after you deleted the current chat?? I mean for same people we have chat. Notification came but the chat isn't it. Is it still bug on Whatsapp?.. thx
  • Best update ever.. Now all that we need is the ability to send and save music files and im a happy kid :)
  • Hm you can't change text size anymore in this update! It points you to system ease of access setting..
  • Awesome news !! Good to see all the new features included in this release. WP apps are getting batter and baetter day by day. Good job Whatsapp team, Nokia and Microsoft. Keep doing good stuff like this and WP will go a long way.
  • +920 :)
  • "batter and baetter?" I'm not associated with the grammar police, but gee.
  • Hey, he tried two different forms. You've got to give him some credit for that.
  • +WhatsApp
  • Great day for WP8
  • This is great! Now the only real features we need are: 1. The ability to send and save audio files. 2. Stability fixes and message selection, its a very annoying issue where message links get all messed up and copying a particular message copies altogether someother message.. Hope you can understand this. 3. The ability to have all the conversations, without them being deleted. Currently, whatsapp  stores only around 500 messages for each contact/group and it is a hit and miss process goig till the last message, the app frequently crashes while attempting the same. While my friends with android phones can scroll back to messages that are even a year old!

  • I guess that is why Whatsapp moved under the Nokia Apps. there, they are open to more APIs, like the video editing thing. from nokia. Most probably, sense whatsapp has its own folder now, it will save more than just pics and vids, meaning we might get Real Backup soon. so that after you Hard Reset your device, you will be able to retrieve all messeges. Which also means we might be able to store all Whatsapp information.
  • Where do you get the separate folder?
    i didn't find it under the album section :/
  • +2520
  • My life is complete.
  • +1...tune in`s got an update too in case any of you are interested ,fixes those bugs "cannot decode stream data" and a few others,d app is stable and works just like it should :) 
  • Smz u a gay
  • And yet skype still cant send a pic
  • Forget about Skype, it's useless on WP.
  • +920
  • Atlast a separate whatsapp folder in the albums :)
  • getting this in Malaysia!!  
  • YES!!!!
  • What's going on? I switched to US Marketplace , but still version 2.11.312.0?
  • The update is not live yet. Just be patient.
  • Hey I think we cannot send multiple images which are saved in memory card .....
  • Yes u can,and after this update the app feels faster too
  • A tiny bit faster
  • i have update my lumia 520...n have sd card in it which contains some photos...now in whatspp when i click on attachmnt icon , then albums then only three folders are shown i.e camera roll, screen shots and saved pictures...so where the hell are the other folders ... m only saying that i am able to send pics through others folders but by going thorugh those folders....but from their i cannot send multiple pics...

  • I can't either, so annoying I used that all the time!
  • Hallelujah..... .we movin on up like the Jeffersons !!!
  • 16mb video file limitation
  • Does this apply for wp7 phones also? I have WP8 but my relatives are still on WP7.
  • Yeah it should work. I'm still figuring it out :) WP 7.8 HTC Radar.
  • Hey. Thanks
  • How do I save whatsapp videos that are in the app? And what format videos can be shared in whatsapp? Also tell me the max Mb limit for video upload.
  • 15mb is limit . Those videos autosaves to WhatsApp folder thats nw on yur photo option.i guess all,formats may b cz snce update I,received many videos thy gt saved n cud share also but format not known .may b any wud limit of 15md
  • Ah thanks mate.. But I can't save videos that are in the app. Any solution? I want to save em to phone memory.
  • U r right videos r not saved in,WhatsApp album . I wonder wht to,do now . It shows save but thy NT saved . N multiple videos also cant b send . Thats sad . Y not saved .n,sorry buddy .
  • If the videos are already available on the phone then I guess it will be available to send. So far im not happy with this update. Its just like the old one for me. Except for the changes that I hardly use, like phone number migration and all the new stuff.
  • Its awesome....
    thanks... Wattsapp and microsoft
  • Daniel, also allows you to save the profile picture. Stores it in a new folder called Whatsapp.
  • I haven't got the option for prerecorder videos !
  • Go to the albums in attaching option and from there u can send the prerecorded videos.
  • Great thanks! I thought albums were meant for multiple photo messaging. :) Silly me.
  • U shud go n,die somewhere in,da,woods.
  • Can't believe how "from da hood" you are.  :D
  • Update is nice but videos on sd card cant be attached also images are automatically being saved i think they have removed the option to disable it.
  • U can attach upto 15mb file .it wrks . N waise b xxx files tha we get on,WhatsApp r alomost max of 12mb lolz.so u can,save n,share .
  • What's the point of whatsapp? Can you really get rid of your texting service and just use this app? Can you send texts with this app to non whatsapp users? And if someone who doesn't have it sends you a text and you don't have SMS service anymore will the text show up in the app?
  • In India free sms limitation is 100 sms per day, and with friends we can message unlimited number of times (dont tell me message freak and work heheh) photos and video sending is so much easier and mms is still not viable option, group messaging is so much easier... And does not burn a hole in your pocket
  • also it is good for people who keep in touch with their families and friends outside their country. I don't think everyone can afford to send international texts a hundred times a day.
  • +620
    Sorry... i was talking for whatsapp, i didnt even mention that app name
  • People don't understand the usefulness of whatsapp. What a shame. I mainly use it for group chats, if I use groupme, txts aren't as reliable because depending on your signal strength, txts wont go through until hours late sometimes. If you're connected to WiFi, whatsapp wont slow down.
  • It's a messenger, nothing more, both parties need to have it installed
  • Actually i liked that manual option to save the pics. I dont want every pic to be saved in my picture hub ! Though i think it would lessen the phone memory that was used by the whatsapp but still i liked that option !
  • In Hindi "jhakas" in English "wow". Finally a smart update . N profile pics can,also b saved now . Now thy shud wrk,on makin WhatsApp clrfull from,thz grn clr . N a bit tiny bit very small bit faster .
  • Can any one please tell me how exactly Videos can be saved ? I am not able to figure out the option.
  • Now all i need is a change in the UI.. Come on WhatsApp you can do it !!!! 
  • Official YouTube needs more seriously attention, whatsapp is growing better now
  • What the heck, my battery drops down from 90% to 15% in no time after this update anyone experiencing such
  • Getting better and better
  • So,sad I learnt tha multiple videos can b attached still . Only photos . My,one frnd irritates me when,he pushes loads of videos at one,shot frm his andiod n,iOS . We want tha,to plz start wrkn,on it.
  • I haven't updated yet whatsapp but in previous version I am facing some issues like app crashes when moving to  previous conversations.. And unable to download things simultaneously... I just want to ask that are these fixed in new update??Thanx In Advance  
  • Yes... many bugs have fixed... even my whatsapp used to crash, but now, that problem is resolved .. :) I will suggest you to Uninstall and re install the app.... it'll be better
  • Thanks for the info.. But people here are saying that after update Videos start downloading automatically.. Is it so then it is a big bug MAN!!! Whether I should update Whatsapp or not???
  • Videos dz NT auto download.it asks to,tap n download.only if downloaded it saves to album orelse it dz NT save. N,buddy u shud b awz updated.
  • Now the only thing I want from Whatsapp is to show online/last seen status on home screen when contact is pinned to there (hope you know I'm talking about).. That would be so AWESOME
  • I simply don't know anyone who uses this app.
  • Minimum requirements: friends.
  • Even after update not able to add video not even photos it opens camera everytime i try to attach file
  • +620
    Do not click Photo. Click on the 'Albums" and you will get there
  • Clear history has gone from Whatsapp version!
    I can't delete and keep in a group.. I can only delete group and history...
  • Open the grp info...u'll get it there
  • I did..
    But when I'm group administrador it doesn't show me anything but add new member.
  • Yup same here...new features....new glitches
  • Nope it has it still...
    open the grp info n tap on those 3 dots on the lower right corner
  • Sorry everybody..
    I found it.. My mistake..
    Thanks everybody!
  • Way to go wp8!!!
    fcuk you android! :3
  • So, WP 7.8 doesn't get a 'whatsapp' album in the pictures hub. That's sad.
    Also, can't save videos received.
  • How to attach videos from ablum.pl help trying but not able to do it.
  • record a video, go to whatsapp, new chat with anyone, click on attachment > Albums > swipe to right, there it is 'videos' section.... :)
  • Thank you,but i am taking about pre- recorded video.i got what you said,but after selecting videos nothing is happening.it only says 1 video selected,then how to attach.
  • the only way now is. to copy your pre-recorded video into Camera Roll from computer and then attach it.
  • Ability to save profile pics too, I'm in love with my phone now.
  • Awesome update! :) I love it... :)
  • Now it backs up content in SD Card too... WhatsApp folder in root of the SD Card... Sou you can now take backup of the backup... HaHa..
  • How to clear my current backup??
  • When are they planning to fix the log of glitches that's piling up after each update ? Unable to see media uploads of many contacts. Unable to view the old chat history . It crashes every now and then . There's lot more things that need an urgent fix , but they are busy doing these fancy things
  • This update sucks. It gives a lot of features but even more drawbacks. While downloading video it doesn't show the progress. And it automatically saves the video no manual option. Not even for pictures now.
  • Also it crashes when u try to send 10 images >_<
  • You both are right. Whatsapp crashing is the first thing i tried with this update. Then i noticed all the bizillion images saving on the whatsapp image folder. Damn you whatsapp! you are one of the reasons i'm seriously considering a Nexus as my next phone (Spotify and random bugs/freezes are the other reasons).
  • Still do not have the "Last seen" toogle. :(
  • Skype should be like this in terms of features and most importantly, speed!
  • I don't see how this was an issue before. Im a heavy WhatsApp user and whenever I want to send a funny video I received I would tap hold the video, tap 'forward' and send to the person. This is still useless unless we get the ability to SAVE videos from different places and then send. Vines and instagram for example.
  • No doubt. It's faster. Good job Whatsapp team.
  • Donno how to save received video on my WP7.8
  • Auto Save toggle is gone even for images.
  • That sucks!  
  • great news ! seriouslly a fast feature full whatsapp app is almost a selling feature for moms and dads here
  • Also you can save pictures from people profiles :)
  • Awesome update
  • Still crashes on reading older conversations :(
  • Cool
  • One more thing....the ability to add background pic
  • Utterly useless. You are only allowed to send videos up to 16mb. A 20sec video with the 920 has ~60mb
  • I don't have the Option to send pre recorded video
  • Solved. After reinstalling get all function back...
  • There is an album created as WhatsApp in photos hub where we can save all the photos and videos received on our whatsApp application.. Really useful it is..
  • This is epic!
  • Is it possible to send videos which are saved on SD card?
  • Yes video only up to 16 mb and multiple photo up to 10 pictures.
  • Am not able to send pre-recorded videos and moreover the option of auto - save toggle for images is gone. It was a handy feature. Now all images are directly saved in my album.....hope they get it back in the next update.....
  • For those of you who want to send pre-recorded videos. There is a work around NB:1. first Keep in mind the 16mb limitation of video file size 2. i have tested with mp4 videos only Heres how: 1. connect your "Phone to a Computer" 2. Copy your desired pre recorded video from anywhere into 'Pictures/Camera Roll' - doesnt matter if its your phone or SD card it, it will find So thats it. Go to Whatsapp and upload it. Thats how it works for me
  • I got update for facebookbeta .....now live in stroe Faster then wpcentral ^_~
  • Version
  • Anyone notice you cannot multi select videos in whatsapp folder? Also where has auto-save photos gone? I cannot see it in the settings menu.
  • Downloaded excellent
  • Great. This was a major drawback in WP. But, on the other hand shame on MS, if whatsapp could get access to this feature, that means it's there but MS just didn't want to share this api to other developers...
  • I wish I can send multiple photos directly from album, this version still can't. Does it require Microsoft to liberate API?
  • Well, you can. Cant you? You can attach 10 pictures only, though.
  • sorry I am not enough clear. I mean I cannot share multiple photos to whatsapp firends directly though native app photos>album. Everytime i need to open whatsapp at first.
  • Great!!! By the way..... Please add mute notification for all indefinetely please? I hate to open each group info and mute it every week (since its only last one week). Thanks!
  • ^This is what i'm looking for every 8 days.
  • Please allow us to send audio files in next update....
  • Just give me Nokia black now and I won't even want a Christmas present lol !!!!!
  • Why I can;t send a 4second 9MB video? That three loading dot just keep moving on my Lumai925
  • How can people Bleat about the 16MB limitation? iOS and android limit is 16MB too. And who wants to send HD videos in WhatsApp?! If you know that you record a video and want to send this after recording in WhatsApp, just make VGA quality and its enough?! Its WhatsApp not YouTube where you can upload a 4K ultra HD 1000 MB video..
  • Now we need a backup to SkyDrive.. !!!
  • Yes,it will make some use of skydrive.also need ability to send songs
  • Oooo wow..multiple image sending is something that i have wanted for sooo long now. Wooohooo
  • I got it but unable to send pre saved videos why?
  • Access it from Attach--> Albums
  • Anyone noticed how 'Auto-save all incoming pictures and videos' option dissapper.This sucks !
  • Still waiting for background image feature and UI upgrade, maybe?
  • app is much faster on my lumia 620 now. groupchats are opening at a third of time compared to before the update. thumbs up!
  • Anybody else experiencing wrong formats of sent pictures when shot in portrait mode? After this update it stretches the pictures to a wrong format...?!? Looks like 4:3 tv on a 16:9 flat.
    EDIT: Saved pictures insert correctly, only instant recorded pics get the wrong ratio...
  • I have the same issue. pics from library are fine, but the one shot in app is resized
  • I'm sure they can solve the personalizing background problem, WeChat in China already does it, Viber as well!
  • Yes, auto save picture option disappeared
  • I woke up to a nice feature-rich whatsapp! ;D
  • Now if only Sending Songs from the gallery also arrives.
  • Ability to send and save audio (mp3) files is needed
  • It said it cant send a 30mb video so will only send the first 16mb. But it seems the whole video was sent after all.....
  • Cool
  • Well, well, now you can also save profile pictures of your favorite contacts!
  • U could also do that by getting a screenshot lol!!!
  • For updates dont keep waiting for them to appear on store. Just search for them inside the store and tap update manually. And btw it doesnt has feature to send videos from memory card :/ on from those stored in phone memory!!
  • Where's auto save of pictures gone?
  • Ok I'm struggling to figure out how to save videos sent to me.... Help?
  • When you download the video, it automatically saves in the pictures hub, in an album called "whatsapp". This is WP 8 only. WP 7.8 doesn't save videos.
  • Downloading the video is my problem. I tap and hold the video sent to me and the option it gives me are "forward" & "delete"
  • Don't tap and hold it. When you receive a video, it should show you a download sign (an arrow down). Tap that and it downloads and is saved in the folder
  • I just thought of something .... I have only saved videos I received after the update. I didn't have any videos before the update, since I had nothing worth keeping. Im wondering if it's possible to save videos received before the update. Im not sure if that's the issue you are facing.
  • I know what it is now. It was a video sent before the update but I can only save it if I scroll all the way back to when the video was sent. I can't save videos from the whatsapp media location.
  • The option to disable auto save incoming pics is gone,....
  • update your facebook now.
  • Sending prerecorded videos takes forever to send and its like 2hrs ot send a file but still not able to send a file Any reason
  • Hi guys!! Can some one suggest me what to do if i want to un-install and re-install whatsapp without losing my conversations,videos and pics.. Thanks In Advance guys :D
  • Why do you you want to reinstall anyways? :s
  • Good Question!! Buddy ACTUALLY I M FACING A PROBLEM that when i swipe up to see previous conversations... APP crashes... And my problem is still there although i have re-installed the Whatsapp.. And i know this issue with very few people... Please help if u have any solution.. 
  • Now the next step is UI changes with version 3.x
  • The only stuff I miss is the ability of sending files, dont you?
  • This is now on par with the android version afterall. WP8 gets the good Apps now, now the OS has to follow.
  • Video transfers are limited to 16mb. An option to choose if you want to send the first 16mb only is presented.
  • Amazing!
    However now we can't send a picture from our facebook album (not saved locally but it appears in Pictures hub right?). But anyways , great! :D
  • The only other thing left is now to be able to share songs from sd card and phone.... This will make this at par with android and ios...
  • Never used whatsapp on iOS but from what I knew, we could not send/save audio/video files in iOS also. Please correct me if i am wrong.
  •  but where is option of auto save picture on off ?
  • I was just regretting the decision to take a WP bcz of so many limitations. But now i am a lil bit cool. Lol. Whatsapp Inc. Well done and ty. Edit: after reviewing new update it seems videos not recorded from phone cam still cannot be sent. What the Hell Microsoft, Its high time you should start giving WP users some control over the OS. Else Nokia is trying to get into market with android phones already.
  • I've updated WhatsApp on my LG E900 with WP 7.8 to version 2.11.340 but I still can't save received videos (some say only videos received after the update can be saved, is it true?). If I want to send a video, I go to Attach -> Albums -> Video but WhatsApp says there are no videos, but I do have many videos. How can I send them? I also can't send music files. Why has the option "Save images" been removed? Where is the "WhatsApp" folder?
  • The videos they mean to say is only the recorded videos from phone camera. Videos that are not recorded from your phone camera cannot be sent.
    Hence its still not at par with android's app.
  • when a person from his android phone can send anything to me on whats app and i can only access my album folder i feel so stupid that i bought a windows phone 
  • drag drop the video to the albums folder. But you would need a PC for that. I hope this is taken care of quickly and we also get the ability to send videos from SD card directly. Same for audio files.
  • WP 7.8 requires Zune software to copy files from the phone to the PC and from the PC to the phone, you can't access the folders in the phone, as WP 8 does.

  • Anybody else experiencing wrong formats of sent pictures when shot in portrait mode? After this update it stretches the pictures to a wrong format...?!? Looks like 4:3 tv on a 16:9 flat.
    EDIT: Saved pictures insert correctly, only instant recorded pics get the wrong ratio...
  • Got to congratulate the Whatsapp dev team for the great job they have been doing for 2013. Video is just the icing in the cake, thoughout the year the app has been getting faster and more stable. I've been using this update all morning and I have to say that they finally nailed it. I no longer have that one or two secconds of lag opening it from closed and it resumes instantly as it always should have. If there are no battery drains then I think this could be the last update needed for it to be just right.  Keep up the good work!  PS. I've read wrong reports stating that sending video from gallery was a nokia exclusive, can confirm this is working on my Ativ.
  • Anyone running into an issue where are messages lagging when you hit send? I tried a reboot and clean install, same issue. I'm using L920
  • i am having this issue for past two weeks now. whatsapp messaging is ok but the messaging hub especially is really giving me nuts at times. could be bug with GDR3 preview (updated again version). I thought it could have been due to less storage memory (not sure)
  • I'm not having any issues with the messaging hub, just WhatsApp. I am also running GDR2, I haven't had the chance to play with the GDR3 Preview. I wonder what the hell is going on. It's so laggy. What's strange is that if I leave the application after I hit send and I don't wait the 10-15 seconds for the message to show up in the conversation above, and I exit the application, it won't send. And now, I'm realizing my L920 isn't charging efficiently at all. What the HELL is going on, hahahah. Anyone else having issues with the update? Any suggestions?
  • Now WhatsApp need to release modern app version for Windows 8 RT and Pro.
  • Nice update but I rather viber it works on win8 and wp8.that gives it the edge
  • I sent a 44 MB video, it just reduces the quality. Try sending a 16:9 photo took with WhatsApp, in my case it got stretched horizontally.
  • Please bring back Auto Save toggle. You give us few new features and take away some good ones. Come on What's app.
  • When is the Windows 8 version of whatsapp releasing?.
  • All I want is to be able to open a conversation and read the first new message... really hate scrolling back to try to find it =( and if there are a lot it chashes!!!
  • Unable to attach 3gp videos. Even unable to,send 3gp videos through bluetooth
  • I am unable to save videos in the whatsapp folder which i received after the update, the videos prior to update gives an option to save the video, is everyone having the same issue????
    and also the downloading of the images and videos is bit slow
  • You cant click on the last picture if it is on the last line in your screenshot album as the "mark" button gets in the way!
  • I only see a few on my albums in WhatsApp. They are still available in the pictures hub
  • M also getting d same problem. Dis u find any solution to this problem???
  • Sir these updates are great but i need update to change the background of whatsapp and lock it by password
  • Its great to finally have this feature on here. However, it is a downer since you can only upload a video sized upto 16mb. I couldn't fully share a 20sec clip shot in 1080p/30fps. Kinda disappointing. Blah!
