WhatsApp’s blink and you miss feature dissected
WhatsApp seems to be working hard to continue looking as exciting as ever. With around 800 million user base that is growing faster than anything else in the world, the app needs to be one step ahead of others to remain in the leadership position.
Now the app has got a much needed improvement. Many would say that the mobile messaging app actually doesnâ€™t any improvement as such as it is perfect, but any improvement in performance is welcome for many others.
But the new development is limited to WhatsApp Android that has got a makeover that is in harmony with Google’s material design principles. Reports suggest that the latest WhatsApp for Android is currently available on the official WhatsApp website and is expected to roll out via Google Play soon.
There is no denying the fact that the new version has some improvements. In the previous versions of WhatsApp, there was only one notification icon, no matter how many messages arrived from multiple contacts, but now multiple WhatsApp notification icons are shown on notification bar corresponding to the number of contacts/groups.
