The popular instant messaging application WhatsApp is owned by Facebook and is now currently used by roughly 900 million people. It is a mobile messaging application that can save money on your phone bills by avoiding SMS fees and mobile data usage. But how does it work? WhatsApp uses the same data plan as both email and web surfing so that users can use Wi-Fi when it is available and only use their data when there is no Wi-Fi connection.
During the last period, WhatsApp has introduced many updates on almost every platform which supports this popular instant messaging app. According to recent statistics, WhatsApp is currently the most used app of its kind in the world. As we might expect, most of them were for Android, given that the majority of smartphones sold on the market today are Android devices, but we’ve also seen that BlackBerry, iPhone and other devices have not been forgotten.
WhatsApp Update for Symbian
WhatsApp is one of the few apps that have full support for older cell phones that run on a Symbian operating system, including a few models that aren’t technically smartphones. WhatsApp developers still devote part of their time to the Symbian platform, and they have finally released a new beta version of WhatsApp for this platform as of a few days ago. So, if you are using WhatsApp from a Nokia device that still uses Symbian, you will definitely be eager to download this new version of WhatsApp for Symbian 40. This is a preview of what’s been changed in the latest WhatsApp beta update for Nokia: accoding to the developers, the WhatsApp search function has been improved in the new version.
The update for the app WhatsApp for Symbian-powered mobile devices is available to download right now. The upgrade to version 2.11.9 is ready, a small jump from the previous version, mainly fixing some minor bugs from the previous version.
To download the newest version of WhatsApp for Symbian devices, go to the official WhatsApp page for Nokia, which will be either www.whatsapp.com/nokia/ for S60 models (plus a few miscellaneous devices) or www.whatsapp.com/s40/ for S40 models (plus a few other random devices).
