WhatsApp has just released a new update with a new version format. To be consistent with the build number shown in TestFlight, we will use the new version format as well.
The new version format isn’t the only news changed in this update, but there is something else new. WhatsApp is now introducing information in notifications when someone mentions or replies to you in a group:

As you can see in this screenshot, in the first image someone replied to me, and the notification reports this information. In the second image, someone has mentioned me in a message, so the notification reports this event as well.
Note that the information about replies and mentions are added in notifications when you receive messages from group chats. WhatsApp didn’t enable this feature for individual chats.
If this information is not visible for you when you receive replies and mentions from group chats, it means your WhatsApp account is not ready, but the next updates will surely enable the feature for your account.
