WhatsApp’s servers are down, but that does not mean we can’t appreciate a new feature coming to their Windows Phone app.
The WhatsApp beta app has been updated to version 2.17.162.
The update adds two new features. One is public – the ability to pin a conversation to your list of conversations.
The second feature is hidden. It is the arrival of a new location sharing feature first seen in Facebook Messenger, where users are able to share their current location for a specific period, such as an hour.
When the service resumes users can try out the new Pin feature by updating the app in the Windows Store here.
