Windows Phone users of WhatsApp can now enjoy the same privacy that Android and iOS users have been enjoying. They can now choose who can see their ‘Last seen’, profile photo and status message. They can set it so everyone can see it, only their contacts see it or set it so no one can see it.
Other improvements in this version 2.11.490.0 update include:
- Chat backgrounds
- Broadcast lists
- Media auto-download settings (settings > chat settings > media autodownload)
- Custom notification tones (Windows Phone 8 Update 3 required)
- Various enhancements and bug fixes
This is a significant update to WhatsApp for the Windows Phone platform.
