    After this update, WhatsApp couldn’t manage to get back for me. I think I am going to use Telegram or something similar with this now.

        I believe WhatsApp still deserves a respect since it is one of the best messaging apps of the world. Many people are using this application for international calls. I also still agree that the last update was a disappointment. I hope they will make things better at incoming days. They always did in the past…
