New voice message update is exactly what I needed!

The most recent update of voice messages is exactly what I've been waiting for! Voice messages have become such an important way to communicate over whatsapp now and the new update allows me to write notes or work in something else simultaneously while listening to my voice notes. Thank you. Plus, I can close my screen and still listen - saving battery life.

The only other thing at this point I'd love to see are more quality options for sharing large videos or images. Ie: be able to send your content in either a high quality version or dramatically smaller and compressed version (to save data). With that, could you also display how long a video can be to be sent completely, as I've had situations of videos I've made being cut in half due to (I'm assuming) length or size.

Thank you for constantly making this app even better!

Upgrading a Mobile Phone

I was disappointed that when I changed cell phones from iPhone 5s to 7 I lost all my Whatsapp histories. I had thought Whatsapp had its own saving method. I hadn’t saved Whatsapp to the iCloud. I didn’t think that was necessary. Anyhow I found that kind of disappointing.

I wanted to send Whatsapp’s to myself e.g. when I need to make a quick note about something. I couldn’t do that on my new phone. I had to create a group Whatsapp and delete everyone else but me. Then only could I send Whatsapp’s to myself.

I get a lot of joy out of Whatsapp. I like knowing that a message is delivered or read. I use voice note to help me memorize stuff. We use video calls to be in touch with loved ones.

Group Video Calling

WhatsApp has improved exponentially in the last few years. The features that have been added such as Group and Video conferencing have been a game changer. I used this app for business and leisure with much ease.

It is worth noting that other messaging apps similar to what’s allow for more than 4 callers at a time. What’s has made it easier to do send and receive important information in real time, however the Video Conference app can still do with much improvement, 4 people just isn’t enough, maybe 8.

Also message pining, I’d like to be able to put more than 3 messages to the top of my screen as I am part of a few groups and atleast 4 or 5 of those groups are really important, I receive messages from the constantly.

I look forward to seeing whatsapp continue to improve and integrating dynamic user friendly improvements in the near future.

Well done to the developers you guys are doing a profoundly excellent job.

Please could developers attend the issue of answering to incoming calls with text “Reply By Text”. During this time whereby people are having Video Conference Calls there will be an influx of traffic on WhatsApp and calls will be deflected in a polite and professional manner.
