WhatsApp for Symbian gets splitscreen text entry support with the latest update!

After constantly requesting the developers, WhatsApp has finally been updated with the feature I was most looking forward to – Splitscreen Text Entry!

Now, you can read the chat while typing your messages at the same time. Sounds pretty insignificant, but in realtime usage, has a huge effect! This will also help you shave off a few seconds on each message, and if you chat a lot, that means a lot of time!

WhatsApp is our favorite multi platform messaging service!

      lol Sahil. No idea man, that’s not a software problem, that’s something wrong with your operator. Which phone are you using now? Ask them to resend you the operator internet settings?
