As well as sporting video recording and sharing, WhatsApp now allows users to share contacts and browse downloaded media in a conversation.
As well as bug fixes and performance improvements, German and Russion localisations are included with improved support for Emoji. A quick run through of what's new in this update:
- Improved support for Emoji

It's great to see continued development from the team for the platform, which puts it up there with iOS, Android and Blackberry. You can download WhatsApp from the Marketplace for free.
Thanks everyone who tipped us on this!

Now, voice mails are working, finally.
I hope they add the ability to attach a already captured video instead of having to take a video to add into the messaging.
I like the smiley faces with colors :)
is it that we should open Music and find the media received there? concerning running Whatsapp under Wifi cnx ... its not something in the whatsapp thats wrong.. its in the OS cause when u put the phone on stand by the wifi automatically turns off... this should be fixed ASAP!!
Maybe free texting is not a big issue in the USA, but in europe we don't have unlimited text messaging plans by mobile operators. SMS/Text are ridiculously expensive over here.
