After just one week since the release of the last update, another interesting new version of WhatsApp is available for iPhone users. Actually, version 2.12.10 for iOS improves the “quick reply” feature that was introduced with the previous version.
For those who are not yet using iOS 9 or 9.1, or who have simply missed the update, let’s recap what is the Quick Reply function. This feature allows users to reply immediately to WhatsApp messages without opening the app, but straight from the notification. The feature is not completely new, since it was already introduced with the release of iOS 8, but until now it was possible to use it only with Apple’s app.
So, what really changes with version 2.12.10 for iOS 9.1 (or higher)? Essentially a couple of things. First of all, as we said above, now you can quickly reply to messages directly from notifications (iOS 9.1+). But how? Simple: by dragging down a notification to type your message. And that’s not all.
In fact, and here comes the second novelty, to this wonderful option it has been added another one equally useful and nice. In fact, with version 2.12.10, you will be able to reply to your incoming WhatsApp calls with a message straight from the call notification (iOS 9+). Isn’t it helpful? Just imagine the time that you can save when you are having one of those days and you are bombarded of messages and calls.
Therefore, it seems worthwhile to upgrade your device with this last updated version 2.12.10 of WhatsApp for iPhone, which you can download for free from the App Store: https://itunes.apple.com/en/app/whatsapp-messenger/id310633997.
But stay on your toes, since rumours report that more changes are coming soon. That’s exciting considering that WhatsApp Messenger already allows you to send and receive messages, photos, calls, videos and Voice Messages. And, last but not least, let’s not forget that the first year is completely free.
