    Hey there,

    Is there a way to edit / change the whatsapp interface? I have a new lumia 820, love it but i HATE the whatsapp style. Why is there no colours in group chats?

    Also, there is no "X" to delete a notification of another chat on top of the screen? Is this something WP should fix with an update or is mine bugged?

    thanks!!

    There's no way to edit the UI in WP8. That means no custom backgrounds or chat bubble colour options. To get rid of a notification, simply swipe it to the right.

    I get phantom notifications on tile (no message actually there) and for some reason, I never get any audio notifications at all on my Lumia 810. I have every notification setting on that I can find.
    Try reinstalling it. I had the same phantom notification issue and reinstalling it seems to have fixed it. As for notifications, double check your settings (ringtones+sounds). Make sure the "All other notifications" box is checked off.

    Recently, my whatsapp sometimes froze during the opening. I had to restart the phone to get it back to work. Is there anyone having the same problem with me? I'm using Lumia 620

    DDon't close your whatsapp. Just press windows everytime you needs to minimise or close it. It works well to me

    I have seen people complaining about delayed messages from whatsapp.
    I had another thread started for this problem sometime back.
    My analysis for this issue.
    Every day I have to start whatsapp atleast 1 or 2 times in order to have the app running in background.
    If I close the app and dont open it for 2 days or 3 days it will be not be showing any notifications.
    After we open the app again we will get all the past updates and updates for next 18 hrs or so.
    Hence we need to open the app every 18hrs and everytime or everytime we are disconnected from net for long time such as 2 - 3 hrs and it will have no delay in updates.

    So from this thread i realize that i should just stick to my n8 till two issues are fixed
    1. phantom notification and delayed message
    2. save images and videos to phone.

    y isn't no one hacking windows yet??

    Whatsapp is a very important criteria for my next phone so i guess i'l wait or get an android. whatsapp looks beautiful on it.

    cheers

    I am from Turkey and one of technology magazine has brought a news that there is a rumour that Google has thougths on buying Whatsapp. As I know Google has no particular service for wp8. Do you think is there any possibilty that Whatsapp will have no offical app for wp8 in that situation. Sorry for my bad English.

    Edit : Lots more, they offered $1Billion.

    I have seen many news articles about it. Given Google's current position on WP it does look bad for us (but understandable nonetheless since they are behind Android)

    I don't know why MS is not buying it... The move of destroying messenger and integrating with Skype is to compite with the rest of message platforms.. But as always with Ms they are doing slow and bad. You can't force people to use something that they don't want to and people is angry with destroying messenger.. Bad strategy again Microsoft...

    I've been enjoying my Lumia 920 for the past 2 months, without issues, other than the random switching-off.
    Yesterday, my friend requested me to try out Whatsapp. I've always been reluctant because of the audio API issues.
    I installed it yesterday, and ever since installing the app, my phone started heating up.
    Every time I unlock the screen, I realized that the back of the phone (near the camera) started heating up. (I was not using the phone much other than just checking my mail and my messages - that's all, nothing else)
    The moment I locked the phone, it was OK, the heat dissipated and the phone returned to normal temperature.
    I tried this several time, and every time I unlocked the phone, I had this heating issue.
    I uninstalled the app, and now my phone is absolutely fine. Prefer living without Whatsapp than with the heating issues (instead using Viber).

    Anyone having similar issues or a solution?

    Whats app is not coded properly for WP devices, dunno why.
    Have had similar issue if i used whats app for long time the phone would result in heating, also whats app is the main reason for battery drainage.
    Whats app should solve the audio API issues on WP8 atleast.

    Your problem mite also relate to loads of group messages or normal incoming messages,also receiving pictures. as they get downloaded.

    Their are some apps that as far as i know are battery hoggers even went not running.
    -Tune in radio
    -Nokia Music
    -Weather ( just weather )
    -Viber
    uninstalling these gave me better battery.

    Not facing as such any battery issues. I had only Nokia Music on my phone and none of the other apps you've mentioned.
    Recently (after the new update), I installed Viber. Not seen any difference in battery life - but facing issues with viber not showing all my viber contacts.
    I realized that only Whatsapp was causing issues.
    Sucks that even after Windows has provided the option to keep wifi always on, Whatsapp is still only updating their current version rather than creating one for WP8 without using the Audio API.

    WhatsApp is an essential app and I am really amused why no updates have come to fix the delay in live tile notifications and message arrival on windows phone...Push notifications also need to be faster..hope these basics issues are atleast taken care of.

    Okay, here are some problems i'm experiencing with Whatsapp.
    If i lock the phone with the screen still holding my conversation, im not getting any notifications. I have to quit every time i lock the phone.
    There has to be a way of changing the notification ringtone for Whatsapp coz the windows tones are too feeble, and i live in India, where things are not too quiet.
    I have to know where the audio files i recive via Whatsapp are stored on my phone.
    The phone heats up when i use Whatsapp for some time.
    I don't care much about the interface, it looks good :)
    I'm using a Lumia 920 and i'm loving the phone, but the notifications in the phone are killing me and i'm missing truckloads of them.
    Please please fix this, and we'll see Lumia surpassing Droids in a few days.
