The life cycle of owning a low-cost Windows phones is winding down but for some developers, the audiences on the platform may still warrant development consideration.
For an instance of development perseverance despite uncorroborating sales numbers, look no further than WhatsApp, which has recently rolled out some new features to its app on the Windows phone platform.
Coming soon to most WhatsApp Windows Phone users are some highly sought after grouping features as well as a new chat mode.
According to Windows Latest,
Facebook has added another new feature to WhatsApp on Windows Phone which allows users to catch up with the messages that mentioned you at a time when you were away from the group chat. The admins can finally remove admin permissions of other group participants, and you’ll be also able to find anyone in a group by searching.
On the other hand, Facebook-owned WhatsApp is getting the group calling feature on iOS and it will be coming to Windows Phones real soon. Facebook had announced that WhatsApp will receive the group calling feature soon, and while the official roll out hasn’t begun yet, it will happen in the coming days.
Windows phone may be dead in the water as far as Microsoft is concerned, but there remain a handful of developers looking out for the handful of Microsoft users who may still be using the company’s outdated hardware.
