WhatsApp beta for Android 2.17.285: what’s new?
NEW ANDROID UPDATE!
WhatsApp submitted a new update through the Google Play Beta Program: the version is 2.17.285.
This update includes a very important feature, and there are secret references about WhatsApp for Business (tap here to discover).
Let’s find out together what is the feature ..
The Storage Usage feature allows to iOS and Windows Phone users to manage all sent and received messages and media.
This feature has been added in these two platforms many months ago, and there weren’t tracks of it in the Android version, but finally things are about to change because WhatsApp is working on this feature also for all Android users.
Thanks to this feature, you’ll be able to read all details of your chat history, allowing to delete certain messages types: total messages for each chat, number and size of images, videos, GIFs, documents, voice messages, locations and contact cards.
Note that the Storage Usage feature is disabled by default and it will be enabled in next updates.
PUSH NAME IN CONTACT INFO (FROM 2.17.282)
When someone that you haven’t in your Address Book writes to you, you can find his pushname in Contact Info.
Check Contact Info to see if it is available.
ZOOM FEATURE (FROM 2.17.282)
WhatsApp has added the possibility to zoom in the profile picture.
VOICE TO VIDEO CALL SWITCH (FROM 2.17.280)
Recently we talked about the possibility to switch from voice to video call.
When the user tries to do that and the recipient does not support this feature, WhatsApp will inform you about that.
