WhatsApp just keeps on getting better and better with the latest update for iOS bringing new features that include answering WhatsApp calls directly from the lockscreen or using Siri to place a phone call.

After grabbing the headlight with its recent change in its privacy statements that enables it to transfer private account info to Facebook, it has been launching updates after updates that come with new and exciting functions.

The latest update was designed for iOS and it enables users to answer calls made via WhatsApp directly from the lockscreen and it is achieved by using iOS 10’s CallKit – a function that allows third party apps to run like stock phone apps.

Another new feature from WhatsApp for iOS is the ability to now command Siri to send a message or make a phone call. Basically, you just tell Siri what to do and it does it which can be considered very efficient as there will be no need to actually press anything on the phone in order to contact somebody.

Other features that come with the update include functions that we have already seen in the WhatsApp beta version for the Windows Phone like a new widget that enables people to go directly to the latest chat threads without launching the WhatsApp messaging service.

Lastly, a fun feature that is included in the update is a gesture control command that enables users to switch from the rear facing camera to the front facing camera or the other way around just by double tapping the screen.

It was only yesterday that WhatsApp launched an additional function to the beta update for the Windows Phone that included a camera icon at the bottom of the chat window that allows users to share video and images easier than ever before. The feature also enables people to share media with more than one contact simultaneously.
