Whatsapp for WP gets new background agent and more

| April 18, 2013 | 14 Replies



Nokia’s been working with whatsapp quite closely to bring all sorts of improved user experiences. The technicalities of this might not matter to most but Whatsapp is getting a new background agent. Previously, Whatsapp had been using the music API so when in use, it would leave a blank ‘streaming’ song.

The background agent now reportedly works like every other app for WP.

There’s also:

  • larger image support to make them easier to view in line
  • notification fixes
  • faster resume
  • new smilies
