Update adds new features to Android version of WhatsApp
posted by Alan F. / May 06, 2016, 6:12 PM
Other new capabilities include an improved method that enables you to quickly start, mute and delete multiple chats. Each chat can now be easily identified by the solid color that you assign to it, and a new Quick Camera button pops up in chats, allowing you to choose a picture or video from your camera roll.
The update should be available from the Google Play Store by now. You can check it out by opening the Play Store app, tapping on the hamburger menu on the left, and clicking on My apps. Scroll down to WhatsApp to see if the latest version has been bestowed upon you. And if you don't yet have the app on your phone, you can download and install it now, assuming that your device is running on Android 2.1 or higher.

Apple had this ages ago in Whatsapp. Android always trying to catch up wow. But what else do I expect? Apple is king and will always be king.

I don't know why you think whatsapp's update policy makes apple king. It's their decision and has nothing to do with the platforms. Regarding the king part. In light of recent events, You might wanna say 'a king(if that is what you think apple is) about to be dethroned'.

What a silly comment. Since when does an OS developer have anything to do with the development of a third party app unless it duplicates something that the OS already has--like what Apple does to its competitors.

I really don't get what apple users/enthusiast do in phone news site such as P.A... There are barely any news about apple, and the ones regarding apple sometimes are about things that don't matter to the user. In the other hand, there are tons of news for android users. p.d. I don't hate apple, I do love android.
