WhatsApp Messenger for Android recently received a major update which sees support for Android direct share. WhatsApp Messenger is a messaging app available for Android and other smartphones. WhatsApp uses your phone’s Internet connection (4G/3G/2G/EDGE or Wi-Fi, as available) to message and call friends and family. Switch from SMS to WhatsApp to send and receive messages, calls, photos, videos, and Voice Messages. First year FREE!* (WhatsApp may charge thereafter, current price is $0.99 USD/year).
WhatsApp Messenger for Android changelog:
- Starred messages: Now you can tap and hold on any message in a chat to star it so you can easily find it later (works like a bookmark). You can browse starred messages from the Chats tab > Menu > Starred Messages.
- Links that you share or receive will now include a rich preview. When sending a link, you have the option to not include a rich preview.
- Support for Android direct share, which lets you quickly choose a specific chat when sharing content from other apps (Android 6.0+).
