WhatsApp latest update offers new privacy settings and pay you for a friend’s subscription
The latest update lets you tweak your “last seen” status and profile photo, and increases the message history that you can send. It also gives you a camera shortcut for sending pictures faster, and now features large video thumbnails within a chat.
WhatsApp’s Android users can now pay for their friends’ subscriptions on the same mobile platform, as well as others including iOS, Windows Phone and BlackBerry. The chat app is free to download and use for the first 12 months, with a $0.99 in-app payment required each year after that.
