Audio hack has become useless for wp7.8 as well after the 8862.144 update.

Also, let us share audio and video stored in the phone ...and also to save them to music + video hub.

Okay this is totally news to me! Are you saying the new Microsoft update that fixes live tile issues also lets you have an option for "keep wifi alive" in advanced settings? If that's true, Whatsapp is SO due for an update to leave my audio API alone!

i face some sort of issue with WhatsApp on my Lumia 820
the notification comes and i open whatsapp to see the new message, and its not there, i go back to main screen to find the notification says that i have "1" message
and again to whatsapp and there is no message, after a while, the phone rings again for a notification, the same message rings again and everything is good at that point.

i had that before yesterday's firmware update, im checking if this thing will happen after.

That's true only for a first few minutes till the app sleeps. Once the app sleeps i.e. on phone sleeping - you will get notifications to wake you up. When you lock screen, the first few minutes, it doesn't pause the app so you will keep receiving messages as if you were reading it real time. I don't know how other OS deal with it though.

Well for some reason I don't understand the use of Audio API in Whatsapp, I mean if I listen to music after I close whatsapp I will still get notification and the battery will not drain so fast, but if I leave whatsapp to use the audio API then the battery goes down fast.

I think music streaming works with regular pings to their server to keep the connection alive between your phone and their servers as well as keeping WiFi alive on WP7.x

well, the WiFi stays alive even after locking the screen after the latest update... At least, it is staying awake on my Lumia 800.

I do very well understand. Its stays white even after screen is locked i.e.it stays alive or awake and applications can use it even if the screen is locked.
Why not check it yourself?

Anyone else getting delayed whatsapp notifications? It's been on and off and it is starting to get annoying.
yes mate, delayed messages, multiple alerts for the same message sometimes 45mins after the message was read, UI problems on 7.8 etc. I have sent multiple error reports to the dev team but they never reply or acknowledge...

I am getting used to delayed notifications which occurs rarely but especially for this week, there have been lots of problem due to the late notifications for both whatsapp (2.9.4) and unfortunately Skype!!! (The new updated version)
