It seems that WhatsApp is keeping its promises. After the news released a few days ago, when users were informed that the Facebook-owned company was dropping support to certain operating systems (such as Windows Phone 7.1, Nokia S60 and Blackberry 10) to better focus on other mobile platforms that the majority of people use, new updates to the app are gradually coming. Obviously the decision has created quite a discontent between WhatsApp users of these older platforms, who have time until the end of the year to switch to other platforms like, for example, Android.
And so today we are going to see the last updated version of WhatsApp for Windows Phone. This latest version 2.12.300, as we said above, further improves some features introduced with the previous update. With version 2.12.278 the grouping for consecutive messages from the same contact had been changed, with the removal of some spaces between them. Now, with this new version 2.12.300 of WhatsApp for Windows Phone, this option has been further enhanced, with the chat bubbles that automatically adapt to the length of the text you are typing.
And the good news is that the update is already available in the stable version. Some changes have been brought also to notifications. After this latest update notifications of messages arrived on your device while the app is closed will be cleared from the Action Centre as soon as you open the app again. You will notice also some changes in the Info page, thanks to some minor restyling.
The toast and Action Centre is now considerably wider, allowing WhatsApp users to immediately read a whole message if it is less than 4 lines. In addition, also the Live Tile has been improved and now, besides showing the missed messages, offers a brief preview. So, what do you think? Are you convinced?
