New WhatsApp features!

The popular messaging app, WhatsApp, has added in some pretty cool features into their latest build.

Recently seen on Android (version 2.16.399) and iOS (version 2.17.3.28), users can track the location, real time, of their contacts. It seems, however, that it only works with a conversation group. The feature will be disabled by default, but can be re-enabled manually in the settings for the app. This is most likely, due to privacy concerns.

Also seen is the ability to recall your messages. I is worth remembering though, that this feature is only available if the message hasn’t been read.

There is also a ‘Contact Us’ option, giving the user the option to report messages to WhatsApp as spam. This is done by shaking your phone in the middle of a chat. The jury is out, however, as to how well this will work!
