Whatsapp for Windows Phone has just received a long overdue update, bringing a slew of improvements and new features. Most importantly is a proper background agent, getting rid of the audio streaming in the background! Hip Hip Hooray! Also updated are the Emoji to match thos of iOS and Android (i’ve had a couple sticky situations were I accidentally sent the wrong face :/ ). Plus now you have the option to voice call a contact directly from the app (not THROUGH the app) but simply a shortcut rather than finding their name in the contacts list.

Another change is the larger preview fro sent images (as seen below) and a warning informing you that you won’t recieve push messages when in battery saving mode. All in all it’s a long awaited and much needed update grab it at the link below and enjoy!
