Good news for you WhatsApp users on BlackBerry 10. The app has now been updated to version 2.9.3997.0 and along with it comes some nice fixes and improvements.

I for one have been using WhatsApp a ton since we got it on BlackBerry 10. For me it's the perfect way to keep in touch with buddies around the world that for some strange reason still use another OS. I also seem to recall seeing something in our forums regarding Verizon now supporting WhatsApp too. Lots of happy BlackBerry 10 customers!

Updates include:

  • Added many context menu actions to chat messages and contact items
  • Added 'Add' and 'Block' actions to chats with unknown contacts
  • Added 'Email Conversations' feature to the chats list contact menu
  • Improved Send Location feature
  • Various bug fixes, including blocked contacts, profile photos and contact status
  • Added languages - French and Italian
