The messaging application WhatsApp is generating buzz. The question is which is not always for the better. This time it is a supposed list of new features that are coming for the version of Windows Phone. The dissonant note is that users of this platform take two months waiting for an update to improve this communication tool. And not for the news, which are quite interesting, but because they are using a tool that compared to other platforms is below about features and performance.
This new list has leaked from an Italian website where supposedly a beta tester, a person responsible for tests the performance of products in development, in this case of WhatsApp, discussed the innovations this version bring. A version with the number and quality of new products is expected to raise the number of version 3.0.
The first is an improvement in terms of the user interface, i.e. at the interface and visual appearance of the application.
Something that would come from the hand of an agent code rewriting to avoid having to use the music section and improve the performance of the implementation.
It is also possible to enable users to call through the mobile phone and the Internet (VoIP) from the profile in the talks.
New emoticons to use in conversations. Perhaps the new selection that users of Android and enjoyed for several months and that they inherited from the of iPhone.
The emoticons also be reflected in the live tiles or medium sized tiles placed on the desktop of the terminal.
The rewrite and improvements also allow open the application from a notification does not take too long as to date, losing several seconds to load. According to leaks, it will be like in Android, virtually instantaneous.
Alongside these developments would also include a function to retrieve a backup application installed nothing. This means retrieve stored messages daily if uninstall or lose the application for any reason. As long as you do not format or delete all files in the terminal, of course.
The new design results in a user viewing the images larger, taking over the terminal screens.
Finally, you know that in the next version it will be possible to delete the files received to avoid filling the memory.
News that may be basic for other platforms but that, given the trajectory of WhatsApp for Windows Phone, are awaited and useful options. Still remain one more customization and proper functioning of the application. Issues hopefully improved in this release have not yet arrived but that is expected in the coming weeks.
