WhatsApp Messenger for Windows Phone 8 Receives Speed Improvements and New Abilities

WhatsApp, social apps, free messaging

While there is currently a WhatsApp beta application for Windows Phone that’s been getting a number of updates as of late, it’s been awhile since we’ve seen updates come to the public release.

Today, however, WhatsApp has pushed out just such an update, bringing a few notable (and previously beta accessible only) features to the application.

Users can now send videos from their device gallery to their WhatsApp friends.

Users can now send existing (pre-recorded) videos via WhatsApp to their contacts, a feature that was released on WhatsApp beta not too long ago. If you have any videos sitting in your Windows Phone device’s gallery, you can now send them to any of your contacts.

In addition, the ability to send multiple pictures has arrived. This is similar to attaching two or more pictures in an email message and makes it easier to share larger amounts of content with your favorite WhatsApp friends.

Other bug fixes and speed improvements round off the changes in this latest release (version 2.11.340), which can be downloaded via the Windows Phone Store.
