    Before you try this, ensure you are in a quiet environment:

    Open WhatsApp and put the speaker (bottom end of the phone) next to your ear - and you may very well hear a static noise. This doesn't always happen in the main WhatsApp page, so then enter into a chat and then it should happen if it hasn't already.

    This has been proven on a number of my friends 920s too. I hadn't noticed it until it was pointed out to me. It clearly seems like a software incompatibility issue with 8.1 and WhatsApp on a Lumia 920.

    The same issue was not able to be reproduced on my HTC 8x.

    Tell me how you guys go. Many of you will be surprised I'm guessing.

    ^ that is good to hear (in a way) that its not just 920s, so its almost definitely a software issue now

    I'm getting the "cracking" or "popping" sound in Metrotube when I skip ahead in a video. I emailed the dev and they said they're looking into the issue...

    I can hear the sound, but WhatsApp works ok on my Lumia 920. I guess this sound can be the answer to the battery usage.

    It happens in Whatsapp Beta also. Once you enter the chat window it starts and wont stop until app is closed. May be due to this my battery is getting hot and draining quickly.

    Have mailed the whatsapp WP beta support team about this bug. Previously I have got replies from the whatsapp WP beta support team regarding the bugs I reported so hopefully they take note of this also.

    I did a search but couldn't find anything! Surely this requires it's own thread. Huge issue! And obvious source of unnecessary battery drain :( - app developers and Microkia need to be awared asap. Everyone needs to email the respective parties, strength in numbers
