WhatsApp has just updated its Windows Phone 8.1 and Windows 10 Mobile app to version 2.17.52.

The new update continues WhatsApp’s trend of modernizing its design standards to conform to Microsoft’s new universal Windows app design language without actually updating their app to support Microsoft’s new platform (As only 15% of Windows phones can run UWPs, but ~90% of modern devices can run Windows phone 8.1 apps).

The redesign focuses on the homepage, with the Windows Phone 8.1 style pivots being ditched for Microsoft’s new Pivot style found in apps like the People app and Photos apps.

Furthermore, WhatsApp has also lifted the sharing limit from 10 images to 30 images, so you can now share more images at once instead of having to share in batches (useful for sharing holiday photos on family group chats)

Aside from that, there are the requisite bug fixes and performance improvements, with some reporting a minor speed boost as well.
