WhatsApp For Symbian Updated – Now Supports Multimedia & Location Sharing
WhatsApp is a cross platform app that allows you to exchange messages with your friends and contacts using a data connection (or WIFI) in the same way as SMS. Additionally you can also send multimedia files and share your location from within the app. The best thing about the way it works is that you do not need to add people to your friend list, if they are in your phonebook and use WhatsApp, they will automatically show up in your friend list.
Until today, the Symbian version did not support multimedia or location sharing and you were restricted to plain texts, but that’s changed with the new 2.2.21 update that available directly from the WhatsApp website. While WhatsApp is available from the Ovi Store, it still has the old version and unfortunately Ovi Store doesn’t support app updates yet.
As you can see, the ability share pictures, video and audio is all there. The nice thing is that the shared location can be opened in Ovi Maps and you can directly start navigating.
The new version also has tabs for chats, your favourite contacts and finally all the contacts in your phonebook. The first year usage of WhatsApp is free, I recommend you give it a go.
