WhatsApp for BlackBerry 10: version has been released

whatsapp per blackberry last updateA new updated version of WhatsApp for BlackBerry 10 is now available, with new useful features. With this new version, together with the usual bug fixes, we can see the improvement of the support for chat actions when using the web client. Furthermore, it has been also introduced the ability to read your Facebook contacts from the system address book.

As always, in order to download this new beta version you must be registered in the BlackBerry Beta Zone.  After you register, you can easily download and use this application for free. So, another step forward for WhatsApp, which during the last few months is trying to keep up with the needs of its many users by adding constantly improvements to its platform.

And although the popularity of this instant messaging service keeps on growing (900 million active monthly users, with a growth of 100 million users only during the past four months), we certainly can not say that WhatsApp is loved and respected by all. Clearly we are referring mainly to its competitors. In fact the market of messaging services is experiencing a particularly lively period, and as well as WhatsApp, many are the companies that offer similar services. And the battle to be the first one in the field seems to be no holds barred.

Just this week, during the TechCrunch Disrupt Conference, we have seen Pavel Durov (Telegram CEO) stating clearly that “WhatsApp sucks”. What prompted Durov to do this harsh statement? That’s what he said: “If you have WhatsApp and your phone goes down, you don’t have access to your messages,” adding also that “You can’t send documents and it’s not private. I’m not sure if I’m a big fan of WhatsApp three years ago, and not so sure now.” These are certainly strong words, which, for now, have not yet been followed by any reply from WhatsApp (that is Mark Zuckerberg, owner of Facebook).
