There is another major update for the iPhone App of WhatsApp. In the new WhatsApp 2.12.8 version you will find the Quick Reply feature. Many iPhone users were already excited about this feature for a couple of weeks. But now it is finally there. Using Quick Reply, it is possible to respond immediately to a new WhatsApp message through a push message. This means that when you receive a new WhatsApp Message, you don’t longer need to open the App itself. You just swipe down the incoming message. Subsequently, you can send a quick message, a voice message or emoji. It will also be possible to send Quick Replies with your Apple Watch. All these updates are included in WhatsApp 2.12.8
Are there any other innovations in WhatsApp 2.12.8?
Besides Quick Reply, Whatsapp added another important feature to WhatsApp 2.12.8. We are talking about 3D touch support. Thanks to this WhatsApp Update, you can instantly view any kind of media like video, images and locations. This works via the well known “Peek & Pop” feature which was introduced a couple of weeks ago by Apple. This 3D touch feature is only available for iPhone 6S users. Do you receive a location via WhatsApp? You can easily softly press on the address. Then you will see a preview of the location in Maps. It makes it way more efficient to navigate through the WhatsApp media.
