Instant messaging app WhatsApp has achieved a new milestone today. In early 2016, WhatsApp had acquired one billion users on WhatsApp and now they are celebrating one billion active users that rely on WhatsApp daily for communication.
WhatsApp is constantly experimenting with new things and this time, they are making videos more seamless with your current chat conversations. After opening up WhatsApp file transfer to any file format, the next big thing would be picture-in-picture viewing for both YouTube and video calls.
WhatsApp, one of the world’s most popular instant messaging app is currently facing some disruptions in China. Photos and videos sent via WhatsApp were reported to be blocked while some claimed to be unable to send text-based messages.
Finally, the update many of us have been waiting for is finally rolling out on the insanely popular instant messaging application WhatsApp. In its latest version, users can now send practically ANY file to chats! You can also do some neat stuff with text formatting too.
If you’re still using a BlackBerry 10 device such as the BlackBerry Classic, Passport, Leap, as well as the BlackBerry Q and Z series, you’re in luck. WhatsApp has extended its support for BlackBerry 10 and even BlackBerry OS7+ users until the end of this year.
WhatsApp has updated its iOS app which now comes with several nifty new features. These would definitely make your buzzing group chats more pleasant to use.
OK. We thought this would be pretty obvious, but clearly there are more vulnerable people out there than we thought. In any case, here’s a super helpful PSA:
The WhatsApp messages regarding WannaCry affecting online transactions and spreading through WhatsApp are FAKE.
WhatsApp may launch a peer-to-peer payment system in India and is likely to be powered by the Unified Payments Interface (UPI), which is a cross-bank payment system backed by the Indian government. Peer-to-peer transactions are electronic money transfers made from one person to another through a P2P payment application.
WhatsApp has announced that there will be a change to its existing status feature. What kind of a change? Well, something along the lines of being able to post pictures or videos that vanish after 24 hours.
WhatsApp has just introduced a new way of securing your account. If the standard SMS verification isn’t enough, you can now add another layer with its new two-step verification. So even if someone grabs hold of your SIM or hijacks your mobile number, this will prevent unwanted access to your WhatsApp account.
