WhatsApp update for Windows Phone bring with ‘@’ mention feature and bug fixes
WhatsApp for Windows Phone updated. But wait this time it’s a major update. Apart from the bug fixes and other improvements there are couple of new features in latest WhatsApp update for Windows Phone. One of the new feature is already available for Android and iOS (I believe).
Latest whatsapp update for Windows Phone finally bring ‘@’ mention features. The Mentions feature allows you to specifically refer to someone who you’re in a group chat with. When you mention someone, a notification will be sent to that person indicating they were referred to.
To mention someone in a group, simply type the at symbol ‘@’ and select the person’s name from the pop-up list. However, I am not saying that the UI of this feature is just awesome. It’s kind of messed up.
Camera launcher on Home screen
Most of us using WhatsApp to share media (e.g. photos, videos; Specially me while I have college exam and submission). So to take quick picture from the WhatsApp they introduced a quick camera launch button on home page. Well, of course there is also an option to record video. And they also display your recent photographs in-line in latest WhatsApp update for Windows Phone.
Earlier WhatsApp for Windows Phone already get Onedrive integration to backup chat and media. The latest WhatsApp update for Windows Phone bring version 2.16.256. So go and grab the updated version of WhatsApp from the Windows Store and enjoy!
