WhatsApp iOS app gets hefty update

Just in time for the new iPhone and the (likely) announcement of iOS 8, WhatsApp has been updated to add quite a lot of new features. That is, except for voice calling. We know you can do that, Facebook, really.

The gist of the changes means WhatsApp will be a little bit more fun while adding some necessary refinements and tweaks.

Photos and videos will now have captions if you want them with a fast camera access button just for capturing and sending photos from the app. If you have an iPhone 5s, rejoice. You can now share slow-motion videos. Everyone else will just have to be content with the new feature that allows trimming video.

For location sharing, there is now a drag-and-drop pin for more precision as well as support for satellite and hybrid map views.

Other important add-ons: the added ability to archive chats and groups and being able to set media auto-download preferences. That will be a great help for people with limited space on their phones.

WhatsApp has even thrown in new wallpapers and notification tones and when reporting problems, WhatsApp now lets you attach screenshots.
