Thanks to the recent updates of WhatsApp for iOS and Android, users can finally open chats with unknown phone numbers, so they do not need to temporarily add unknown phone numbers to their address book

Had this issue yesterday. Updated the app and it sorted itself out -  looks like attached images

The issue with the update is that when you press the button to record a voice note it switches to camera. (the new feature to send small videos in the chat)

Probably not the place to post this but Iím not happy with wtvr new update WhatsApp did with communities. The Dansdeals alert WhatsApp group requires 2 clicks to see the posts now. One click brings you to the list of groups within the community (in this case, just one-the announcements group) and then another click into the announcements group to view the posts. Thatís pretty stupid
nothings impossible- the word itself says Im possible

Very annoying.
But you can click the notification to go right to it.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.
