WhatsApp developers often release (nearly every day) updated versions of this popular instant messaging app, mostly for the Android platform, but also iPhones, Windows Phones, BlackBerry and Nokia devices are regularly updated, for the joy of their many users all over the world. And in fact today we will talk about a new updated version of WhatsApp, this time for Nokia, Nokia Belle and Symbian S60 devices.
This new version, number 2.16.29, has just been released and, unfortunately, doesn’t bring any new features, just minor updates. The installation file (.sis) of this latest version of WhatsApp for Nokia and Symbian devices has been increased by 3KB and has 8 modified files. These 8 modified files are connected to the application’s executable and libraries.
As we said above, unfortunately, this time you won’t find any new files, and nothing has been deleted as well. What more? Let’s see. Bad news: this latest 2.16.29 doesn’t add new emojis. Good news: you are now able to see them when one of your contacts sends them to you. And that’s a considerable improvement, isn’t it?
Furthermore, in case you don’t remember (but we think it’s unlikely), end-to-end encryption has been enabled also on Nokia devices, so the privacy of your messages has been further secured. We know that this option generated a huge debate, and is still criticized. But most of the users seem to appreciate it, and that’s important to the owners of WhatsApp. Last but not least, don’t forget that now you will be able to configure notifications simply going to Settings > General > Security.
You can install this latest 2.16.29 version of WhatsApp easily, and we really recommend you to do it. You can download manually this last .sis (installation) file going to whatsapp.com/nokia. Or you can always check on your device itself if there is a new version of WhatsApp available. You just have to open the app and go to Options > Settings > Update.
