    Good performance? If you don't use it for some time, it takes too much time to resume!
    If you're not using it for some time anyways, why not kill the task completely? A fresh launch of the app takes like what, 2 seconds?

    And battery killer? Oo I have no idea what you guys are actually doing with Whatsapp, but for me battery consumption is absolutely okay.

    I recently hard reset my phone and reinstall whatsapp (not beta) but it seems after this reinstall whenever I open and use whatsapp the phone gets a sudden drop in battery of a few percentage points. Then when I check the battery drainage it pops up to like 4-5% drain per hour and I am only typing one to two messages at a time. And obviously the "whatsapp does not support my version of windows phone" message continues to persist. Have anyone experiencing the same issue? Other than whatsapp it seems my battery drains very slowly (i.e., normally). I made sure all battery saver settings are the same as before the hard reset to make sure I compare apples to apples.

    I am using Lumia 1520 with Cyan. Anyone comment would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    It is for sure and not maybe. Whatsapp on WP 8.1 is a battery hog. And whatsapp is not fixing this issue

    WhatsApp has almost useless feature to Search in history. I use WA everyday, so i have very long chat history. Through searching for one msg I received long time ago I found it (its from 7/11/14).

    Is there anyway to jump to that specific day so I can read before/after msgs too??

    For the last 20 min I've been scrolling n scrolling to that day and finally when I got to 7/15/14 that same person txt me and I couldn't not answer her)) So my scrolling happened to be useless:)

    If you see how fast kik messenger is, you wonder how whatsapp can be so slow.. Even in 1995 computers were faster at picking up and presenting a bunch of text characters. That's all the app has to do damn it. It should pick up all thumbnails from a cache. Why is it so slow??

    Here's what I did when I had a terrible hog/irresponsing loading dots when opening/switching to whatsapp.

    1. Backup your whatsapp messages.
    2. Uninstall whatsapp. RESTART phone.
    3. Go into Store and reinstall whatsapp. DON'T open it after the installation is done, but RESTART.
    4. Now, run whatsapp. It should not hog/lag anymore. And you don't even need a soft reset. Battery life is slightly better now. 0-2% discharge during 8 hours bedtime (with Battery Saver mode 'on' and whatsapp 'always on')

    because they do bad coding.

    I just asked them to following:

    Hi, I just want to know when are you gonna release an update for whatsapp
    on windows phone. Almost 3 months have passed since we got an update for
    whatsapp stable version.

    However, whatsapp beta receives updates on daily/weekly basis. But it is
    allowed to download only for beta testers.

    My requests;

    1. Make whatsapp beta PUBLICLY available not privately.

    2. Release updates for whatsapp stable version more frequently. weekly
    upates would be appreciated.

    Thx

    Serhan

    Here is their answer:

    Hi,

    I think so. At least, I guess v600 could be final release. So I minimize my expectations and then disappointment would be less.

    By the way, latest beta release was on 24th September, with version 556.

    They have no schedule for updates! Sometimes I get updates on daily basis and sometimes there is no update for 2 weeks. Most updates didn't bring something new and if there is new stuff we don't get any changelog and have to spot changes ourselves. I guess there is something like plotting? Maybe a bigplayer pays a nice amount to give infrequently updates and bad quality of updates.

    I have realised it too, Updates are weird, coz it does add nothing, only very small, unnoticeable bug fixes. If they keep at this momentum v600 is my lucky guess that should be take 3 months more. Maybe they update stable version of Whatsapp as a new year's present for 2015. Also we know that voice calling for whatsapp is coming to ios / android. Maybe they have focused on ios and android like nokia here team do. So it is a good explaination why we are not getting frequent and noticeable updates anymore.

    Hey guys, I wonder if anyone has the same Problem. I realized this issue after the last pfd update. Whenever you open the apps, its making a white noise like "ssssssshhhh". It's not really loud when you are in the middle of the crowd. But when you go to more quite place, You will definitely hear that. This is a little bit annoying. And I'm wondering if it drain more battery. Anyone has the same problem?

    I use nokia lumia 520, Lumia Black, with preview for developer (which is updated only 2 days ago)

    All windows phone 8.1 users have this problem. It is a known issue, and the beta builds of Whatsapp have addressed it. So there is no sssssshhhhhhhhhhhhh sound for whatsapp beta users. When Whatsapp gets an update for public users, you will enjoy chatting without a sssshhhh sound!

    Besides, whatsapp beta updated today with a version 2.11.558.0 Since it is in private beta, only selected users are allowed to download and use it.
