WhatsApp joins the ranks of 3D Touch-enabled apps for iOS

iPhone 6s and 6s Plus devices.
As you're probably aware, 3D Touch allows you to quickly access a handful of vital app shortcuts or other crucial UI elements by exerting force onto the display.
The latest addition to this list is one of the more popular messaging services around - WhatsApp.
The messenger app now allows you to hard-press its icon and access two of its most often used features - Search for a contact and start a new chat.
We did not notice any other additions to the app's interface. There doesn't seem to be a quick reply feature of sorts added to the heads-up notifications, either.
In related news, all users of jailbroken iOS 9 devices can now employ a somewhat similar functionality on their devices thanks to a Cydia mod, logically dubbed "Forcy". You can read more about it here.

Why didn't they add the possibility to add shortcuts to specific chat threads? That's way more useful that new chat and search. I have a shortcut in Android when I swipe the Whatsapp icon to always open the chat with my wife. It's extremely useful.

I like how developers quickly support new technology of apple but come on that is pathetic the should have added more options like specific chats i can go to quickly For me whatsapp for android is better and more useful like putting the chat in a widget so i can see what my friends are talking about without entering the app now that is the beauty of android
