There’s a reason why WhatsApp is one of the most popular apps amongst the crowd -- the company tries to leave no stones unturned when it comes to providing the best of services. This year, the app has gone through a lot of changes. Other than introducing the Snapchat-like Stories, WhatsApp also introduced features such as live location and many more. Today, the iOS application of WhatsApp received a new update that introduced a couple new neat tricks for the users.
The latest version of iOS on the App Store is available for download and carries the version number 2.17.81. The first new feature which the update introduces is related to the voice messages. iOS users can now send hands-free voice messages – just follow the same process of pressing and holding the microphone to start recording. However, while recording, you will now notice another lock icon just above the mic. If you swipe up, the recording will be locked and you will be able to release your hands after recording completely.
The update also brings in-app YouTube support, where users will no longer require the YouTube app to play links via the app. Thanks to the new update; you can now view the video right in the WhatsApp app via the link. The picture-in-picture mode will also help users to do other stuff such as messaging to other persona t the same time.
The update is only available for iOS as of now and it will arrive for Android soon. If you are an iOS user, you can head to the link below and grab the latest version of WhatsApp Messenger.
