Whatsapp Gets Updated to Version 1.5 – Now Includes Group Chat and Other ImprovementsDecember 30, 2011 No Comments
Whatsapp was one of those much needed apps that Windows Phones users were waiting on. After its releases though it was very noticeable that it was a rushed project which represented just the bare-bones minimum of what the app was capable of. It is good to see the developers plugging away at trying to make Whatsapp for Windows Phone at least comparable to its other mobile versions.
Whatsapp has just been updated to version 1.5 which for the most part brings over group chat.
- Create and modify group chat
- Hyperlinks in chat page
Performance improvements, including:
- able to delete large conversations
- faster insertion and removal of messages to and from local storage
- faster creation of favorites
