    I like the new emojis menu scrolling, easier to find the one you're looking for

    and let's just take a moment and be grateful to Whatsapp team for including something that neither iOS nor Android has yet: different backgrounds for each conversation

    1. Now chats background turns dark or white according to theme settings. I like that.
    2. Dp of contacts are loading a bit slow as it does in android. They need to fix this.
    3. More details about a contact are being shown. Liked that!

    I can feel whatsapp on windows phone is now moving towards the correct direction:)

    Did they just add ability to save videos in the first update and remove it in the second?

    To be clear I mean videos that have been made and sent from within WhatsApp so aren't otherwise on the phone. After the first update I was able to save these after browsing the photos and videos within a conversation (though not directly from the conversation).

    The first update however stopped working after a couple of hours (couldn't open whatsapp at all), so I then unistalled and installed the updated update. Trying to save videos in the same way again now and it seems the option is no longer there? Plus old photos now look really pixelated.

    This would be very annoying as has been the feature I have been waiting for. Either that or the ability to send videos that I've taken with my main camera that are longer than about 15seconds (ie compression or similar).

    edit - it would appear the function is still there for new videos but for old videos i can't even play them as I get a 'media file does not exist error'. So I guess the update has lost all my videos somehow. I won't try to express how annoyed I am.

    Anyone else uses Search feature in WA. it was almost useless before update -if I search for a word it would show ONLY the most recent One even if I had used it multiple times. Anyways, right now WhatsApp doesn't find anything. I was so hoping it will get better, but broken now

    So finally wait was over yesterday when whatsapp released much awaited update for WP. Though there are no major features added but it still its better to get something than nothing. There are some cosmetic changes added to the update which is really nice. However I wish they will continue the streak with regular updates for WP and add new features.

    1. Seems faster, seriously. (loading, resuming, choosing attachments/photos/etc)
    2. Emoji scroll orientation has changed, and it is the smoothest ever!
    3. Group chats can mute for 1 YEAR. Lol (heard some lenovo phones can go up to 1 century, wtf?)
    4. Different background images for every individual chats and/or group chats. Awesome! First for whatsapp, and it's on WP.
    5. Fonts seems slightly smaller = sharper? Love it this way, more conversations can be seen.
    6. Tapping on the person's name within the conversation will bring up his/her info. (is this new?)
    7. Chat info will highlight the whatsapp number the person is using (if he/she has multiple numbers stored in its contacts)
    8. Better battery utilization? Seems less drainage than prev version.

    * I'm downloading this app manually, saving it for future side load.. just incase future updates mess things up. By far, this is the best non-beta version on 8.1 :)

    Noticed that media downloaded thru WhatsApp now gets saved in the WhatsApp album rather than the Other album

    I read many of you said it actually works faster, IDK mine when I launch from start screen takes few seconds to open. Black background with Loading... shows up first

    tried it and soft reset, not slow but not instant either
    don't know if it has anything to do with my lagging start screen (i'm using 3 columns on a 520)...

    Haven't noticed any speed increase after update (opening of app). But the speaker hissing issue has been solved.

    Picture scrolling and emoji scrolling is very smooth. Photo caption works very well.

    WhatsApp noob here. Can anyone tell me how to invite contacts to join groups even if I am not the admin of that group? My friends on other OS's have been able to do that without a problem. Any option /setting I've missed or WP version is yet to get that feature?

    Just tested now on Android. You cannot add participants to a group if you're not an admin

    Hey friends, from today morning my WhatsApp is not opening. The brightness of WhatsApp live tile had got deemed(low), as compared to all other live tiles.

    I even tried to open it through "Cortana", but then too its not opening.

    After this I searched for WhatsApp on store; WhatsApp was found but there were no options of "view and share" at bottom.
