A beta tester has revealed that WhatsApp has finally ditched its kludgy background music workaround on Windows phone and for an upcoming version will be using a proper Background agent.
The app will also add larger image support, notification fixes and fast resume, and they promise the app will now respond as rapidly as on their Android version, which is always running in the background.
The latest changelog features:
– v2.9.63 attempts to fix hanging on WP8
– v2.9.69 (submitted on 16-04)
Hopefully the messaging app, which recently revealed they have more users than twitter, will soon released a polished version into the Windows Phone Store.
