Whatsapp Now Allow You To Preview Videos Before Downloading

In a bid to keep whatsapp as the ‘oba‘ of instant messaging, a brand new feature has been added to the mix.
The new feature allows you to stream videos while downloading them, just like on Youtube.

WhatsApp

Before this feature this feature came along, you could only watch videos sent to you via Whatsapp after you have downloaded it, but now you can easily preview the video before you download it. So if while previewing the video you feel like you are not interested, you don’t have to download it.

I think it is really helpful as you on’t have to download lame videos anymore. To get this feature enabled, you have to download the latest WhatsApp beta update from Play Store, iPhone users will have to wait a while to get this feature.

How To Install Whatsapp On Your BB10 Device

Sometime last year, Whatsapp announced that it was stopping support for some devices including BB10 devices.
It appears they are keeping true to their word because few days ago, a lot of users reported that they got this message when they tried to open their WhatsApp

“You can’t send messages to this chat because WhatsApp no longer supports this phone”

What this means is that Whatsapp is no longer supported on BB10 devices.

How to install WhatsApp on BB10

However though, one advantage Blackberry 10 has over all the other non-supported devices is its ability to run Android apps hence, this gives you a bit of hope that you can still use WhatsApp on your Blackberry 10 device.

I’m going to quickly guide you on how to install WhatsApp on Blackberry 10 in a few minutes.

How to Install WhatsApp on Blackberry 10 Devices

1. On your BB10 device go to Settings > App Manager > Installing Apps and enable installations from unknown source.

2. Download the latest version of WhatsApp apk.

3. Run and install it on your device

Once the manual settings are completed, your WhatsApp should run normal without seeing the dreadful message of your device not supported.
But if this doesn’t fix the problem, I think its about time for you to upgrade your device to a supported device.

WhatsApp To Introduce An ‘Edit’ And ‘Unsend’ Feature Soon

The year, whatsapp has seen a lot of impressive upgrades ranging from Zip file sharing and call-back support, to GIF support to the most important VIDEO CALLING! which a lot of people are still enjoying.

It seems yet another update will soon be unleashed, and it is one feature fast-typers such as me need a lot… I can not count how many times I have sent wrong messages (most times I type without looking at my screen so…). With the new feature I don’t have do what I used to.. Wondering what I used to do? Look at it below…

WhatsApp Unsend feature

New reports suggest that WhatsApp is testing a new feature that allows its users to ‘revoke’ an already sent message, edit it then send it again.

This feature is currently available on BBM and Gmail.
The ‘revoke’ feature is said to have been spotted on WhatsApp beta version 2.17.1.869 on iOS.

While the ‘revoke’ and edit feature is really cool, what is more interesting about the feature is that the ‘recalled’ message will disappear or get deleted from the receivers’ phone too.

Scam Alert!! — WhatsApp Scam Message About “Google Free Internet For Everyone”

There are several rumour, hoax and scam messages that are being spread on WhatsApp. Since it is the best way to spread this type of rumours, scamsters are preying on ignorant WhatsApp users to spread their rumours and scams in order to make money. While the recent one on WhatsApp Gold Edition was on a high, a new one has just surfaced which is promising people that they will get 18GB of free 4G internet data from their service providers. And the best part is that the message states that it is coming from Google who is presently running a project claiming that it is ‘free internet for everyone’.

The message ‘Free Internet For Everyone (IFE) Project’ is claiming to be run by Google. The message is spreading across WhatsApp groups, targeting ignorant users and luring them with free 18GB of 4G data to download some apps and click on various advertisements. The message is a complete hoax and part of a scam. Please do not click on the links in these types of messages or download any apps that they tell you to do. Also do not spread the hoax message forward.

The message reads free internet data for everyone and claiming to be run by Google. The message reads that Google is giving away free 18GB of recharge and all you need is to support the project by downloading the app from Google Play. The link to the app is also provided, which reads ‘http://googleplay.com/store/apps/com.ife.google’. If you look carefully, the url given spells ‘googleplay.com’, but here the scamster is playing with fonts. The ‘l’ in ‘google’ is actually an ‘i’ and it will take you to the url ‘googieplay.com’. The link looks authentic to an ignorant user. Also do note that the actual url for Google’s Play Store reads ‘play.google.com’ and not ‘googleplay.com’.

If you click on the link (which we don’t advise), it takes you to a website which reads the same information about the free data and free internet project. The website also prompts you to download an app from there. The app is probably a tweaked or altered version of ‘FreeCharge’, which is cleverly renamed to ‘Internet_Project_App.apk’, which could probably be an adware or malware. Proceeding further will congratulate you that your mobile number is selected for the free 18GB data and it is valid for one year. Next you will be asked to enter your mobile number to complete the offer, which takes you to another page stating that you have to share the app or message to 10 more people on WhatsApp — thus spreading the scam further to another 10 people. The message also claims that you have to install two more apps after that and then you will get the free recharge on your data plan. The other apps are malware and adware, which can put your privacy at stake.



We again urge you not to click on these types of messages which will help the scamster spread the scam ahead and make some quick money.
