    I read of TONS of complains about almost any possible whatsapp's problem.
    But i can't find post about this problem:

    When whatsapp is opened and volume is set in a 1-30 range (so any value more than 0) you can hear a noise from the phone speaker. It's not really load but its easy to hear when you're in a very silent environment. Beside from the *battery drain it cause* it make me feel the app like a VERY unreliable one.

    ​Reproduce this problem is pretty easy: open whatsapp and put your phone's speaker on your hear.

    I had verified this problem with Lumia 620, 920, 925, all with WP8.1 installed.

    Do WP8.0 users have this bug too?

    This isn't just a WhatsApp problem. You can hear this on FaceBook Messenger and a handful of other apps as well.

    Strange. I can't comment on WhatsApp as I don't use it, but I definitely have an audible static noise on FB Messenger. I have a Lumia 820. I've spoken to a few people who have the same problem. Maybe it's caused by the developer preview. Perhaps a sound API not functioning correctly?

    I have the same issue on a Lumia 928 running 8.1 preview with whatsapp. A very faint white noise which lasts till the phone screen is locked or the app is closed.
