You can now download WhatsApp v2.17.40 for iPhone immediately on iOS App Store, as it has received a new update adding few additional features to the Messenger. Here are the details.
First and foremost, the updated version 2.12.40 of WhatsApp for iPhone brings the ability to pinned chats on top, share any type of files and other few new features. Meaning that iPhone users can now pin up to three important chats at the chat screen at best.
How it works? Once pinned, a conversation stays on top of the list, even though when you’re getting messaging from other users. In order to pin a chat, just tap and hold the chat, then tap the pin icon that is present next to the delete, mute and archive option. Tapping the pin icon will move your chat to top. That’s it.
If you want to unpin the chat you have already pinned, a long press on that chat and select unpin option. This exact feature was been already available for WhatsApp Android app since May.
Now iPhone WhatsApp users also be able to share any types of files on the Messenger. Finally, the WhatsApp update also tweaks the way you view received photos. You will now see bundled photos with a thumbnail gallery instead of seeing single photo in a column. To view, simply tap the photos in full full size versions. In addition to that, you can now tap and hold on the group of photos to quickly forward or delete them all at once. Great.
