Whatsapp Back in WP Marketplace; Loads of Mini Changes in Tow

| August 12, 2012 | 25 Replies

After about a week of going MIA Whatsapp is back on the Windows Phone Marketplace with a nice changelog of minor fixes; and in case you were inclined to believe the rumors, don’t worry It’s still free (Yay!).

As there’s no official changelog this is based on what I’ve experienced:

  • MUCH MUCH smoother (the whole phone feels smoother, I think Whatsapp was eating too much ram)
  • New shortcuts in active chats to create groups, Search for contact and edit status
  • Search function under favorites & all
  • New animations when opening chats
  • Somehow Whatsapp is acting as media/music meaning you can access it from the drop down volume control bar (icon is the same as the radio/streaming icon)

I think it’s possible that whatsapp was causing some issues with the latest update on the Lumia 900 as mine was seriously buggy after the Software update; but now everything is smooth sailing; if you’ve noticed anything else let us know down below.
