WhatsApp for iOS now lets you include videos in chat backups
WhatsApp's iOS app has received an update, bumping it to version 2.12.5. The update brings some new and useful features, such as the ability to include videos in chat backups, custom notification settings for individual chats, and automatic loading of messages on scroll, among others.
The updated app lets you backup your videos along with your chats, something which you can do by heading to Settings -> Chats and Calls -> Chat Backup. In addition, now you can also set custom notifications for individual chats, and even mute the ones that make a lot of noise. The update also lets you mark chats as unread or read with a swipe to the right.
Moving on, now you can directly share contacts from the Contacts app and locations from Apple Maps with others on WhatsApp. Also, older messages now load automatically as you scroll chats. Another useful feature the update brings is that now you can control the amount of data consumed during WhatsApp calls, something which you can do by heading to Settings -> Chats and Calls in the app.
Finally, the updated app also features better support for VoiceOver, and brings improved design for cropping photos and videos.
