The new update to the Android variant of WhatsApp takes the messaging app to version 2.11.230, but it is not yet available from the Google Play Store. You can download the update directly from WhatsApp by heading to the sourcelink. One of the new features that comes with the update, Group Mute, includes a tongue-in-cheek setting. The feature allows you to silence an entire group for as long as a century. Of course, no one knows what the future of tech will be in 5 years, let alone 100, so selecting this option is another way of permanently silencing the group.
The update also allows you to disable notifications from the group by un-checking the "Show notifications" box. And a new camera icon located next to the text input field allows you to take a quick photo to send to one of your contacts.
WhatsApp is in the midst of being acquired by Facebook for $19 billion
. Earlier this month, the FTC signed off on the deal
. Both sides are still awaiting approvals from international regulators.
