WhatsApp for iPhone: the next update will introduce 3D Touch support

whatsapp 3d touchBig news are coming for those who use WhatsApp with iPhone 6s and iPhone 6sPlus smartphones: the latest beta will introduce support for 3D Touch. This is what we found out from a tweet of a German developer which is currently testing a new version of the popular instant messaging app. For the moment, the support for this new feature is rather limited: in fact it is active on the application icon on the main screen and allows you to quickly write a message, an instant access to the settings, and to “Star” a message.

Today we are not yet able to tell you if in the final version of the application you will be able to use the 3D Touch support even within your chats, or to Peek and Pop. We have just to wait and see what happens. But when this new version of WhatsApp for iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus will be released? It seems that the update that introduces the 3D Touch support should arrive only after the release of the stable version of iOS 9.1, and everything suggests that it should happen soon.

whatsapp for android new betaBut if WhatsApp for iPhone is going to change a lot with the 3D support, what’s changing in the Android platform? Just yesterday we talked about the new feature which finally officially integrates Google Drive into WhatsApp (at the moment available only for Android users), enabling the backup of conversations, photos and videos. Today we have news about a new Beta version 2.12.302.

What does it bring? Really not much, mainly some bug fixes and improvements. To install this new 2.12.302 Beta version you have to follow the standard procedure, that is: 1)  download the APK file from WhatsApp website (whatsapp.com/android); 2) you need to enable the “Unknown Sources” (going to Settings > Applications); 3) now you have to uninstall WhatsApp from your Android device; 4) at this point you can go where you have saved the 2.12.302 APK file and tap on it to launch the installation.
