Although Tizen is a platform virtually unknown in many parts of the world, especially when talking about smartphones, WhatsApp has been available for handsets driven by it for quite a while. Two years ago, Samsung Z1 and Samsung Z3 received voice calling for WhatsApp. Now, two new features have just been added.

WhatsApp for Tizen was initially an emulated version of the Android build, so features added to the Android app instantly became available for Tizen users. In the meantime, an official build for Tizen was launched, and now this app receives Voice Message and Call Again, two features that need no explaining.

The latest update of the WhatsApp piece of code for Tizen is labeled as version 2.16.8 and, in addition to the new features mentioned above, it also fixes an older WhatsApp-related issue as well. The previous update of WhatsApp for Tizen delivered PDF and DOCX support, quote replies, and larger emojis.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
