Minor update for the Windows Phone version of WhatsApp fixes an issue with Broadcast Messages
WhatsApp is actively supporting the Windows Phone version of the messenger. The latest update appears only three days after the last minor update, which brought the app to version 2.11.350.0, introducing Hindi language and bug fixes. Now, version 2.11.356 aims to resolve an unnamed issue with the reception of Broadcast Messages.

Broadcast Messages is a feature of WhatsApp that lets you send a message to many contacts at once, without them knowing who the other recipients are. The app also supports Broadcast Lists, which let you preserve a saved list of contacts to whom you regularly broadcast messages.

WhatsApp itself is a mobile messaging service that lets you text without paying for SMS, and send multimedia messages via your device's wireless connection. It has a free year-long trial period, after which you have the option of extending your subscription for $0.99 USD per year. Its maker warns that the good ol' trick of reinstalling the app and free-riding for another year won't work.

Apart from Windows Phone, WhatsApp is available for iOS, BlackBerry, and Android as well.

This is the best Application of all OSes... From Android to Windows and all the other OS's in between... I simply love the way this App works, and for how cheap it is... "WhatsApp" all the way.
