    The beta testers got new builds almost daily (see the pocketpc.ch forums for updates on every build) and it has been 9 days between the second last and the last beta version, signalling that it is in he final stages and that any current version could be a release candidate.

    In summary: there is no schedule for the update, we only know that it is very near!

    Here's hoping they fix the battery consumption issues... probably the worse culprit on my phone

    Battery drain is because of that sound api, with the new update they are removing that so it will solve that battery drain

    look at this https://twitter.com/_aka_P/status/339741906303086592

    however the audio api is still used in the wp7.x version of whatsapp (according to the beta tester on pocketpc.ch) so the much better battery performance only applies to WP8 users

    Turn off means Mute, right?? because there's no way you can turn off the notifications even in android except you disconnect data.

    even in WP, you can go to the chat, hit group info and mute it for a certain amount of time.. am I missing something?

    So true. And would have removed it if it wasn't so important to my circle of friends and fam

    I wondered why my battery was almost flat after just chatting to my friend on whatsapp for a couple hours

    That is ridiculous battery drain, if they don't fix it in WP7.x Im moving to another messenger app

    Am afraid! I believe Whats app would continue to use audio api for WP7.x even after an update!

    Not according to its WP Store page.
    I'm eager to get the updated version, as my 920's battery can hold up from 6:30 in the morning to 11 PM on regular use (and I'm no light user) if I don't use WA. It won't last six hours using WA, though. Talk about an inefficient piece of software.

    Any word on notifications? It keeps up turning my screen on to show toast notifications. I have a chat group with friends that can be talkative sometimes, that helps to drain the battery also.

    You can shut down group notifications in the current version
    select the group, pull up the 3 dots, go to group info, under mute select how long you want to shut down notifications for, the max is one week, unfortunately can't do a permanent shut down

    I've had two wp7 devices focus s and lumia 900. whatsapp was never a battery drain on those phones so i didnt care about the audio API

    when i got the 920, it was a different story, little chatting would drain 10% easily and then it wouldn't stop. Throw in the notification delay issues im thinking is continuing to try and retrieve messages. Sometimes id go in to check new messages and it wouldnt show, had to close out a few times to get it to show. I hope they fix this issue,
