New Delhi, Apr 04: WhatsApp for iOS has been updated with three new features. There are three alert options notify all contacts, notify contacts who you have a chat with, or you can manually choose who to alert.
However, even if users choose not to notify their contacts, all groups they were in would still be notified.
The features are a part of WhatsApp version 2.18.40, which can be downloaded from the App Store. The update will be available for devices running iOS 7.0 and later.
In this new update, iPhone users should now see recent status updates in a new WhatsApp widget on iPhone's Today View section. The update also enhances the voice messaging feature by continuing to play voice messages even if the user switches to another app or closes their screen. Sure, most data shows that fewer people are using voice messages, and Millennials aren't even checking voicemail, but those still communicating via voice message will find an easier time retrieving messages when switching between apps and multi-tasking
