WhatsApp For Windows Phone Updated – Lockscreen Notifs, Backup And More

Lockscreen Notifications support being one of important new additions, WhatsApp’s Windows Phone version has just received a nice update, bringing some much needed improvements and features.

WPCentral’s Daniel Rubino has gathered all the bits and these are the new additions in the update –

  • Lock screen notification support
  • New Tile design (less cartoony, more Metro)
  • Backup function
  • Hit “enter” as send
  • Mass message
  • New Attachment screen, including Audio, Video, Location, Picture, Camera and Contact
  • Some new UI layout changes

However, I do find the app to be much buggier. It also keeps Resuming.. all the while, which is very annoying. Hopefully, they’re working on that already.
