Whatsapp Update - you will love these new features.

Filled under: ,

We're always keeping an eye out for the latest WhatsApp update news and features. In this article, we'll tell you what features each new update brings. Soon, you'll be able to send and receive any file type via WhatsApp.

How do I update WhatsApp?

Get WhatsApp updates from the Play Store

The easiest way to update WhatsApp is through the Play Store, where updates will work their way to you automatically. Make sure it's not waiting for an update by opening the Play Store, pressing on the trio of lines in the top left to open the menu. There, select My apps & games and see if it's listed at the top of the screen.

What's new in WhatsApp+

Coming soon: send any file type

Until now, for no apparent reason, file transfers on WhatsApp were limited to only specific file types. Aside from common video, image and audio formats, you could already send documents, presentations and PDFs, but now WhatsApp has decided to change things up. Users will soon be able to send any file type (like PSD or APK files).

Don't get too excited, though, as the file size will be limited. iOS users will get preferential treatment with 128 MB as the maximum, while Android users will be limited to 100 MB and WhatsApp Web users will get just 64 MB. These limitations may be put in place to avoid overloading the servers.

It's not yet clear when this update will be made available to everyone, as it's only being tested with a few users at the moment. But, have patience, as it's sure to reach you soon.
Pin conversations with WhatsApp Messenger version 2.17.264

WhatsApp now offers you the ability to pin conversations, both for your group chat and for classic conversations. This can be very useful if you receive a lot of messages from different contacts: you can keep an eye on your favorite contacts so that they will always appear at the top of your list of recent messages. To do this, simply display your chat window and long press on the one you want to pin, then you just have to press the pin symbol to set it. There is a limitation though: you can pin only 3 conversations. Yes, it's a shame, but it assumes you have no more than three favorite conversations to pin on WhatsApp.

Translate and format font with bold and italics with WhatsApp Messenger version 2.17.149

Now you can format your messages on WhatsApp. The new feature allows you to make your messages bold or italic on WhatsApp. Just select the text you want to format, press the three dots on the right, and then select bold, italic or any of the other options that suit your tastes. Or, you can choose to translate the text to another language right inside the app.

Snapchat-style statuses with WhatsApp Messenger version 2.17.73

Unable to buy Snapchat, Facebook is trying to copy its features in WhatsApp Messenger. Text statuses have been a part of the app since 2009, but now you can post photos with emoji, text, sticker and more as our status.

Each part of your WhatsApp Status is visible for 24 hours. You can choose who can see it and who can't in the settings. In short, if you are familiar with Snapchat or Instagram, you'll get the hang of it quickly.
