WhatsApp Update for iOS Brings “Starred Messages”
Facebook has released a new update for the iOS version of WhatsApp messenger. What’s new in this update you ask? Version 2.12.7 brings “Starred Messages” to WhatsApp iOS. This feature will allow users to move certain messages in a chat to a convenient set of starred messages.
From there, these messages can be searched using the built-in search system added by developers. According to the release notes:
Starred messages: Now you can tap and hold on any message in a chat to star it, so you can easily find it later. Go to contact info or group info to browse starred messages for a given chat. Starred messages also appear in their own section in search results.
Now you can keep a tab on messages you think are important or you may need to see in the future. Similar feature isn’t yet available on Windows Phone and Android. We can expect it to release on Android in the near future; however, Windows Phone users are often the last ones to get updates so it may take a while.
You can download WhatsApp Messenger for iOS 2.12.7 from Apple’s iOS App Store HERE.
