It looks like restless WhatsApp has an update addiction. So, if you’re a fan of the popular communication client, you’re welcome to take a look at what new features Android update 2.12.342 has to offer.
Previous version 2.12.347 came out less than a week ago and it did not have anything new. The latest build, however, has some handy functions that we will look at.
Pick whichever message you want when deleting group messages
Now, WhatsApp users are free to remove any message from any group. Hand pick a group chat, tap the menu, followed by “More” and then “Clear Chat”. This enables you to remove all new and even old messages.
Store your conversation history on Google Drive
Your account conversation history is backed up and can be easily restored with the help of storage software Google Drive.
“All chats cleared”
If you still have messages on WhatsApp from half a year ago, then you’ll be ecstatic to discover the “Clear all chats” function.
Label chats with stars
This feature was designed to help users keep track of specific files on WhatsApp. Long press the desired chat and then tap on the star symbol. The selected chat will now be starred for your convenience.
Preview your Tweets
It’s weird how long users had to go without the possibility to preview their Twitter posts. Well, seeing that WhatsApp users love to share tweets, app engineers finally decided to include the function in the update.
These are the updates. What do you make of all these WhatsApp updates? Are they too frequent or not?
