1. More storage

Due to the amount of messages/photos/voice notes WhatsApp usually saves from your conversations, it's the biggest consumer of storage on your phone - but NOT ANY MORE. The latest update has reduced the amount of space you need to run the app, which will hopefully result in less of those 'not enough storage' messages.

2. Advanced photo sharing

Instead of uploading pics manually like you have to at the moment, a new option allows you to share photos directly from Google Drive, Dropbox or Microsoft One Drive by allowing you to open apps *within* WhatsApp and choose photos from there. Cool, huh?

3. You can now share documents too

Just as you can now share photos, you can share documents too - meaning in the same way you can attach a file to an email, you can with WhatApp too. Handy, huh?

4. Improved video viewing

Say hello to your new fave feature: zooming in on videos. Whilst this wasn't a thing on the old version of WhatsApp, the update means you can pinch and zoom on moving footage in the same way you can on photos. Pinch and zoom, pals, pinch and zoom.

5. Wallpapers

Forget the boring WhatsApp default ones or the block colour alternatives, 'cos you can now upload your own photos from your phone and set different ones for different conversations. 

THIS IS AMAZING NEWS. IOS and Android users can download the new version of WhatsApp (officially called 2.12.15) straight away.
