iPhone gets WhatsApp updates

Tuesday, 31 January 2017

WhatsApp for iPhone has received an update that introduces many new features including, increased WhatsApp photo and video sharing limit to 30 at one go, a redesigned and more useful storage usage screen and the ability to queue messages - a feature that has been available on Android for quite some time now. 

The latest version is now available for download to all iPhone users. WhatsApp’s new update brings along the much needed ability to queue messages even when in areas of poor or no connectivity. Now, you can just send a message to a group/individual even when connectivity is unavailable and the message will be sent automatically once you get internet on your iPhone. The feature has fi nally arrived for iPhone users with this update. 

WhatsApp was seen to be testing the increased media sharing limit in its Android beta app, now it has fi rst arrived for iPhone users. The earlier capped limit for photo and video sharing was at 10, but this update increases the ability to 30.Meanwhile, WhatsApp’s storage usage screen is a handy tool to see which individual/group chat is hoarding the most storage space, and to delete the content of that chat in order to make room during storage constraints.

The app now lets you choose message types, like videos, text, images, GIFs, voice messages etc from specifi c chats, to delete exactly what you want and keep the rest. WhatsApp is also working on bringing the ability to allow users to revoke or edit messages that have already been sent to other contacts. The feature is available in WhatsApp’s iPhone beta version and is said to be disabled by default meaning that you will have to turn it on manually.
