For you folk out there that use WhatsApp to communicate with your non-BBM friends on other platforms, you'll want to hit up BlackBerry World and grab the latest version which is now available.

Version 2.11.1167.2 contains a mix of new features and fixes, covering a broad spectrum, which is always good to see. What's also encouraging, once again, is that although us BlackBerry 10 users prefer to use BBM over WhatsApp, the developers continue to make the WhatsApp experience as pleasurable as possible.

New in this version:

  • Added a chats-list filter drop-down (Pull the list down past the first item to see)

  • Added support for sharing locations to contacts from within the native maps app

  • Group and Contact info screens now show more media thumbs

  • Improved reliability of uploading large videos where only the first 16MB is sent

  • Added privacy settings for Read receipts

  • Performance improvements for opening chats with large message histories

  • Miscellaneous fixes and updates
