WhatsApp for Windows Phone Update brings a bunch of new features for Mainstream users

WhatsApp, just like many other applications, runs a beta program where it tests out new features before rolling them out to mainstream users.

There’s nothing new for those who have been using the app in beta. In fact, what is happening here is that the Facebook-owned app is now moving some of the features that have been available in beta and making them available in the Windows Store version. The latest version of WhatsApp comes with number 2.17.204.0 and one of the most notable features it brings is the ability to share live location.

This is not all that you get from the new WhatsApp update. Apparently, those who jump onto the new version will also be able to pin chats on top of the chat list so that they can easily be accessible regardless of the situation. This means that even if a new message comes from a different contact, it will appear below the pinned chats. In short, pinning chats is a simple way of giving top priority to specific conversations, be it an individual or a group.

Once enabled, WhatsApp users will be able to unsend messages they feel they shouldn’t have sent to whoever they sent it to. If you have at some point mistakenly sent your mum or dad a message that you did not intend them to see, well, this feature will indeed be a handy one for you. One thing you need to know is that you will only have a five minute window to recall sent messages, otherwise, they will still be there when your dad opens his WhatsApp to check out unread messages.

Meanwhile, make sure you’ve downloaded the latest version of WhatsApp on your Windows Phone by visiting the official Windows Store on your phone right away.
