WhatsApp for Android updated with custom notifications, emojis, urdu, Bengali and more.

WhatsApp, the messaging app with a billion downloads in the Play Store, picked up an important update today. Version 2.12.250 adds a few features that will please both heavy and casual users. 

First in the list is the ability to set custom notifications per chat. That makes a lot of custom notifications that users can apply to individual conversations. Add to that the option to mark messages as read or unread should you want to easily locate a particular message later.

WhatsApp also made some work on emojis. Not only were new emojis added, but a tap and hold on the chosen emoji will allow users to change its color. 

In terms of improvements, the most notable is how you can change the call quality in Whatsapp. A switch was added to lower call quality and relieve the pressure on our precious data plan.

The last three items in the change log are:

  • When receiving a contact card, you can now quickly message or save the contact if they're on WhatsApp.
  • Language support for Urdu and Bengali.
Download WhatsApp in Google Play Store.
