The private WhatsApp beta has been updated to version 2.12.264.
The update brings some significant changes to notifications. In this latest versions notifications of messages received while the app is closed will be cleared from the Action Centre when the app is opened.
The toast and Action Centre message is now also a lot more expansive, and users will most likely be able to read the whole message if its less than 4 lines.
The Live Tile has also been improved, and will now not only indicate missed messages, but offer a brief preview on the other side.
Lastly the Info page has also seen some minor restyling.
It is not know when the changes will come to the mainstream version of the app, but it is nevertheless good to see the company continue to refine their product.
