WhatsApp Messenger for iOS Gets Encrypted Messages & More In New Update

WhatsApp messenger just got updated with a few new features yesterday.

WhatsApp Messenger is a cross-platform smartphone messenger currently available for iPhone and all other smartphones. The application utilizes push notifications to instantly get messages from friends, colleagues and family. Switch from SMS to exchange messages, pictures, audio notes and video messages with WhatsApp users at no cost. All features are included without the need for extra in-application purchases.


What’s New in Version 2.8.3
– encryption: your messages are now fully encrypted when traveling over Wi-Fi or mobile network!
– show push names in group chats for unknown numbers
– better message forwarding picker (show groups, recents, contacts)
– spinning indicator changed to gray clock to match other platforms
– image auto-download
– updated Korean, Chinese and many other translations


We think that it’s great that the WhatsApp team is improving the app in many aspects all these while, from interface to message encryption. You can get the messenger app for free from the App Store.
