Whatsapp Latest Update (V1.6) Broke Media Viewing – Fix on the Way

January 28, 2012 No Comments

Whatsapp was updated recently for the following changes

  • Unread message count in chats pivot
  • Improve behavior when receiving photos on EDGE networks
  • Able to add unrecognized users to device contacts
  • Able to forward messages
  • Update status in UI when successfully setting your own status
  • When creating a group, able to remove users from initial list of invitees
  • Confirmation prompt when inviting a user to a group
  • Fix sort order in group chat invite screen
  • Workaround for “no text” problem caused by Advanced Configuration tool
  • es-ES localization

In the process however the developers ended up breaking the viewing of received media. A few of our twitter followers let us know about this issue.

Looks like an update is on the way to fix the issue however as a reader on WMPU contacted the Whatsapp team and got this reply

Hi ,The submission for 1.6 came from a “tainted” build machine and was not linked correctly. This makes us fail to download media. We regret the error and have sent an update to Microsoft.

Regards,

Andrew

We should see version 1.7 up and in the marketplace soon
