A new version of WhatsApp has been released for Windows Phone 7.5.

The update brings the usual performance improvements, with the app opening faster and old conversations displaying in much less time.

The update also brings a few new small features.

Users are now able to email a conversation they had previously, and the shared images gallery has been updated.  Pictures sent can now also be used as profile pictures.

Unfortunately the app has not shown up for windows phone 8 yet.  We enquired with WhatsApp about this and received the rather unpromising reply:

Sorry, WhatsApp is not fully supported on Windows Phone 8 and we cannot comment on future timelines.

Based on that it will likely be a while.

WhatsApp for Windows Phone 7.5 can be found in the Windows Phone Store here.
