A new WhatsApp version has been released for Android devices and today we will talk a bit about it. First of all, if you own a device that runs on Android 7.0 Nougat, we have some good news for you. Once you install WhatsApp 2.17.14 on your handset, you will notice that the Notification system that the latest Android OS version comes with is finally supported by this application.

The Android 7.0 Nougat has the ability to show you notifications that are grouped by the conversation instead of the application itself. The new operating system also comes with some improvements that allow you to quickly reply to notifications.

Until now, the WhatsApp application was not supporting these new features, but according to Android Police, starting from now on, all users who install the latest WhatsApp application on their Android handset will be able to fully use the Nougat’s notification system. In addition, the new WhatsApp application has brought the Video Streaming feature, which is allowing you to play videos while they’re being downloaded, but also improves the WhatsApp Video Calling support.

Unfortunately, we don’t have any official news regarding the Video Conference feature or if it will ever be added to the application. However, since the WhatsApp application is so popular, the developers will be somehow forced to bring this new feature.
