WhatsApp has become a useful tool for communications, particularly for Android, iOS, Windows Mobile, and desktop computers. Each platform requires different versions of the app. Here are several requirements that correspond to your type of device.
WhatsApp For Android Device
The minimum requirements for Android devices must be at least running operating system version 2.3.3 or higher. Internet connection is also necessary in order to download, install, and use the app. For Android tablet users, WhatsApp doesn’t seem to support this type of device. The latest version of the app for Android is 2.17.393.
WhatsApp For iOS Device
WhatsApp for iOS devices can only be downloaded from the App Store. The latest version available is 2.17.71, which provides Live Location that you can share with your family or friends. You can do this by opening the chat app, tap + icon, tap location, and finally tap “Share Live Location” in order to begin. This version also fixed issues that prevented message notifications to appear in iOS 11. WhatsApp for iOS requires your device to run at least iOS 7.0 or later.
Windows Phone Requirements
If you are going to use WhatsApp for your Windows mobile device, you should take note of the requirements. Thus, you should have at least a working Windows 10 Mobile operating system or a Windows Phone 8.1 to run WhatsApp. The version number is 2.17.306 for WhatsApp for Windows Mobile devices.
WhatsApp Messenger works as a free messaging app for Windows Phone and other smartphones mentioned above. It would require an Internet connection in order to establish communication with your contacts over Wi-Fi or data plan. You should be able to call or message your family or friends, as well as send and receive calls, documents, messages, photos, videos, and more.
WhatsApp Web is another way of using the popular messaging app on your desktop computer.
- Open WhatsApp Web application over your Web browser search bar by entering this link web.whatsapp.com.
- Likewise, open WhatsApp from your mobile phone. You may want to go to Chats > Menu > WhatsApp Web for Android devices. For iPhones, simply go to Settings > WhatsApp Web. Blackberry users also have to go to Chats > Menu > WhatsApp Web.
- Then, you must scan the QR Code found on the computer monitor using your mobile device or phone.
You may be able to log out or retain your active WhatsApp Web session by navigating to WhatsApp Web from your mobile device. However, it is important to connect to a Wi-Fi connection to be able to avoid certain data charges from your mobile device.
Delete Sent Messages
If your copy of WhatsApp is updated to the latest version, then you should have known the latest buzz. Deleting sent messages is now the latest feature that everyone should know about.
This feature should be able to un-send messages that are already sent to the recipient. However, WhatsApp not only un-sends messages, but also deletes some items for all recipients. This happens even after the message has already been read.
