Deletes my voice notes!!!

Can it please stop deleting my voice notes???? One-minute or 40-second voice notes of my heartfelt vehement feelings isn’t exactly very pleasant first thing in the morning.

If you could fix that and also add the gif keyboard for iOS and maybe stickers in the future this app would truly be perfect through and through.

Calls are not in the best quality

Hello WhatsApp, I love your app I've been using it for years! Everything is excellent! One thing that isn’t tho is the calls quality. While in video call, iPhone camera will go to 30fps but on other apps it’s 60fps. Also something else with video calls is that they come as a notification and not as a normal call and it’s very annoying. Thanks for reading this!

It deletes my contacts

I thought it was apple’s update when i first lost lots of my contacts and i had to restore everything from backup!
I didn’t have any issue since, but after that i stopped using this app because most of my contacts messages me in other apps.
Two days ago i started talking with a friend and i added his new number!

Today all the people i had exchanged messages on WhatsApp are gone from my contacts! As it happened the previous time! Nothing else changed on the way inuse my phone
