Now Send mp3 via WhatsApp for Windows Phone

WhatsApp getting ready for Windows 10

WhatsApp today released an update for the Beta version . Primarily the update looks like a Bug Fix update. But while Tech enthusiasts dig into the deep, the update suggests that WhatsApp is getting ready for Windows 10. Notification panel for WhatsApp v 2.11.688 on Windows 10 Notification panel for WhatsApp v 2.12.20 on Windows 10 There are four visible changes. Firstly one of the major feature WhatsApp for Windows Phone was missing for a long time. Now we can attach Audio mp3 files and send it via WhatsApp. Secondly, while sending text there is a cool animation for the chat bubbles. There is another cool new feature to select multiple chats and delete or archive the. And lastly there is a toggle button to enable or disable read receipt in the Privacy Settings. There is a significant change in the version number. While writing this the Public version is 2.11.688, while the Beta version is 2.12.20. I though this version must have the most awaited calling feature. But there is no trace

Net Neutrality

What is net neutrality? If net neutrality was to be defined in a single line it would go like this: “The premise of net neutrality is that all data on the Internet should be treated equally.” Expanding on the above, a more comprehensive definition would be: “Net neutrality means that Internet service providers (like Airtel, Reliance etc. who are responsible for our broadband and mobile Internet connections) shouldn’t be allowed to give preferential treatment to select websites, online services or apps. These ISPs should also not be allowed to discriminate against any websites, online services or apps.” Net neutrality means Internet that allows everyone to communicate freely. It means a service provider should allow access to all content and applications regardless of the source and no websites or pages should be blocked, as long as they aren’t illegal. All websites can co-exist without hampering others. All websites are accessible at the same speed and no particular website of applicat

WhatsApp Calling feature now Available on Android, coming soon for iOS and WP users

If you've been sitting, wishing and waiting for your Android handset to let you make free data-based calls, then today's your lucky day. Android users can finally make voice calls on WhatsApp . The feature was there from the version 2.11.528 but thanks to a quiet but major internal update which made it possible for all users to get the most awaited feature. The feature has been teased for months, with the update hitting select users a month ago. Now, however, it seems it's available to all, with the latest version of WhatsApp offering a new, cleaner layout, with three tabs for Calls, Chats, and Contacts. As you'd expect, you simply click the Calls tab and select a contact to start talking. The company has not yet confirmed about the Update officially. I think WhatsApp will let everyone know about the feature through their official blog . Voice calling for the app should also be coming to iOS and Windows Phone in the near future. It should also be noted that these are

Its still not available on Google Play store but WhatsApp calling feature has now been introduced for all Android smartphones running on Android 4.0.0 KitKat and above.

WhatApp Official site removes the app with calling feature

WhatsApp leaked the version WhatsApp 2.11.531 on its website . But now they have removed it. This is the version that will have the most awaited calling feature. But according to tech specialists currently WhatsApp might be working on this new feature for all other platforms. Many websites have leaked screenshots from iPhone and Android phones. They might be working for Windows Phone devices and once they are ready they might release the app on all the three major Mobile Platforms. If you are using v2.11.527 you can receive the call but you can't call any number. At least till WhatsApp updates the system internally. I do have the latest APK installed on my tablet device but I think WhatsApp wants not to share the APK before they are ready with all devices. I respect their thought and so do not request me to share the APK.

WhatsApp rolls out a new update with voice call functionality

There had been rumors about WhatsApp having a calling feature, well it looks like they've finally implimented it but it might be still in it's beta version, so it's not out for the public yet. After announcing its acquisition of US-based voice-calling firm Zip Phone in early January, India’s very own instant messenger, Hike, had a unique gift for all its Android users on the occasion of 66th Republic Day, 2015. Hike Messenger has now enabled free voice calling in the latest update! iOS and Windows Phone users will get the 'Hike Calls' feature by the end of Q1 2015. Now it's turn for WhatsApp. Instant messaging service WhatsApp has seemingly begun a slow rollout of its anticipated voice-calling feature to its users in India, as reported by GSM Arena . The current rollout, which has not yet been officially announced by WhatsApp, appears to be operating via an invite-only scenario. The feature gets switched on when a user who already has it enabled calls another us

WhatsApp for Web

Now WhatsApp users have the ability to use the app mirrored on a web browser. The web client is simply an extension of a phone: the web browser mirrors conversations and messages from a mobile device - this means all the messages are still live on the phone.     Supported only on Chrome Browser To connect web browser to the WhatsApp client, simply open https://web.whatsapp.com in your Google Chrome browser ( Chrome only supports this ) . One will see a QR code. Simply scan the code inside of WhatsApp, and the user is ready to go.  Your phone needs to stay connected to the internet for the web client to work. For thisthe latest version of WhatsApp must be installed on your phone. Unfortunately for now, the feature is not available for iOS users due to Apple platform limitations. With more than 600 million users, WhatsApp is one of the largest chat clients in the world, and the app's growth has fueled rumors concerning the company's next move.  The Messaging Center Notifications

WhatsApp add new features to Group Chat : Multiple Admins

The new Group Chat feature in WhatsApp lets you chat with up to 100 people at once. Previously it was only 50. It is a great way stay in touch with your family, friends and colleagues. Specially for people with larger number of peers, like students in a class or in a big office, it is now easy to add all the people as members of the group. In addition to the change in number of people you can add to a group, there are a few more changes : Every group has one or more admins. Only admins can add or remove participants. Previously you had only one admin for a group.  Now you can see the Received and Read receipt for all the members of the group, even if they have set privacy option. Other things you must know about Group Chats are: There is no limit to the number of groups you can create. Only admins can make other participants admins. If the last admin leaves the group, a new admin will be randomly assigned. You can always control your own participation in a Group Chat, by staying in or

Read Receipts: WhatsApp - Lets you disable Blue Ticks

WhatsApp introduced a new feature recently that showed two blue checkmarks next to messages when a message was read by recipients. The problem was that there was no option to turn it off or at least suppress it. As soon as you opened a chat a read receipt would appear on the sender's screen. Earlier I have mentioned on my post ( WhatsApp's Blue Tick: Really an Upgrade or a menace ? ) that WhatsApp's Blue Tick may be a reason for Divorces And BreakUps. For the millions who use the WhatsApp service, a new feature is creeping up into a few conversations: blue check-marks. Fear the blue, feel its icy chill run to your core. No more excuses, no more evasions, no more forgetfulness. You did read those messages, and the other person knows. Now WhatsApp brings good news for those who don't want, that the person on the other side knows when you have read the message.  A new update (v 2.11.444)  has been released, which allow us to  disable read receipts. To disable read recei

WhatsApp's Blue Tick: Really an Upgrade or a menace ?

"But honey, I only opened WhatsApp to reply to my boss. He still forwards me every stupid joke he gets. I didn't notice your message about the dinner with your parents!" "Oh. I thought you did and you ignored me." "No, no, I swear. Is it too late to reschedule now? Please don't tell me that I'm missing another lovely evening with your mother!" "See, I had a hunch that you were lying, but now I'm sure. You would never use the word lovely in the same sentence as my mother. Plus, WhatsApp showed me two blue checkmarks." "Two what-now?" "Blue checkmarks. It means you read the message, moron. Before noon. And you didn't answer until now... Eight in the evening. How convenient!" He mutters "Shit!" then hears a click. Beep, beep, beep, beep, beep. WhatsApp's Blue Tick may be a reason for Divorces And BreakUps That and many other similar scenarios are bound to start occurring in the near future. For t

Trick to use dual number on WhatsApp from a Single Phone

When I think about the features that I need in a smartphone, I tend to be pretty practical. Sure, apps, a media player, and a good-quality Web browser are great, but what I really want is a good dual-SIM card phone. Now I know that dual-SIM phones have been around for years , but the biggest problem is How to use WhatsApp from two different numbers at the same time. WhatsApp allows only one number to be logged in at a time. If you Google, you will find different methods, which actually doesn't work, or you need to have ROOT access to your device, which may void the Warranty. So, here I have a Solution !! Though there is no Risk in this process, but still be sure about what you are doing.  For this you need an Android Device ( KitKat or higher), and an App - OGWhatsApp (Download Link Below). Once you install OGWhatsApp on your Android device, the app allows you to use two different telephone numbers with WhatsApp from the same smartphone. It´s much easier to install OGWhatsApp tha
