Full-text chat search and font scaling improved

whatsapp

Seems as though the WhatsApp developers are at it again. A new release is now appearing in the BlackBerry Beta Zone for those of you out there who don’t mind some beta testing. According to the change log, this update focuses on two main concerns.

One being an enhanced full-text chat search feature that allows better search of message history. The other being font scaling improvements within WhatsApp, so the system display settings for font now match in-app settings. Of course, there are the usual ‘miscellaneous fixes and updates’ to round out the update as well.

  • Enhanced full-text chat search feature – Accessed by using the ‘Search’ action on the Chats list. Note: It may take a few hours after installing this beta before the messages will start to appear in the search results, especially if you have a large message history.
  • Improved font scaling to better match the system display font size setting
  • Miscellaneous fixes and updates

If you have the Beta Zone app installed, you should see the update listed and readily available for download. If you’re new to the Beta Zone, be sure to grab the Beta Zone app and sign up. It will be needed to access this release.

Migrate to a new number

If you’ve changed your SIM card, there’s a way to import your account information, groups and settings. Keep in mind that your old number will be deleted. Make sure that your new SIM is active and able to receive SMSes and calls.

On Android
Tap on Menu > Settings > Account > Change Number and enter the old phone number in the first box, followed by the new number in the second one.

On iPhone
Go to Settings > Account > Change Number, Enter your old phone number in the first box, and your new phone number in the second box.

Disable Last Seen and Read Receipts aka blue ticks.

By default, WhatsApp lets everyone know the last time you used the app. Your last seen timestamp, profile photo and status message can be toggled between ‘Everyone’, ‘My contacts’, and ‘Nobody’ in Settings > Account > Privacy on both iPhone and Android.

Read Receipts, notified by those Blue Ticks can seem too obsessive and creepy. You can disable them too, but that also means you won’t be able to see read receipts from other people.
