WhatsApp keeps adding new features and capabilities to this platform. In fact, the past few months have been very busy for the developers of this application, rolling out update after update.
The main problem with this application is that in most cases, these updates are not rolled out to all supported platforms at once. Instead, the Android users are usually the first users to get any form of updates and then later followed by the iOS users and lastly, the Windows Phone users. This has been the same trend that most developers have been using and it’s not just WhatsApp.
An example is the case of the WhatsApp voice calling feature. Even though this feature started showing up on most Android devices in February this year, it is only by the end of last month that the beta testers of WhatsApp for Windows Phone had the first chance to use this app on their devices. At the time of this writing, the users of Windows Phone have now received the latest stable version of this voice calling feature. Despite the fact that this group now has the ability to make voice calls, the feature is currently not very stable thanks to some bugs and errors that still need to be checked.
Easily search for any conversation on WhatsApp
The latest version of WhatsApp now lets the users search for every single phrase that has ever appeared on the saved WhatsApp conversations. While it might be true to say that this feature it not new, it is also true to say that the older version of this feature had some limitations that have now been eliminated.
In the past versions, users could only search for phrases related to contacts stored on the app. When in the chat section of the home page, tapping on the search icon at the top right of the screen would only let them find contacts. However, the latest version of WhatsApp now comes in with something different. Users of this application will now be able to perform a full search in the contacts as well as conversations. This means that you will now be able to search for a specific term or phrase and the app will display to you results based on contacts and the conversations these terms appeared in.
This is an amazing addition that makes searching for anything from your WhatsApp conversations very easy. This is much better than having to go through the hassles of searching all conversations separately in order to find what you want.
