WhatsApp has sent out a new update for its Windows Phone application. The new release brings the service up to version 2.16.300. This is a follow-up to recent beta updates, so there are a bunch of features coming to the app from those builds. Chief among the new additions is support for two-step verification. Other features included in WhatsApp 2.16.300 are storage capacity information, a new video-to-GIF button, and performance improvements. Windows Phone users now get free video calling. This allows face-to-face chats to any other WhatsApp users around the world. The company points out that for this feature users will need Windows Phone 8.1 of newer. The video calling feature was added in an update that rolled out a week ago. WhatsApp build 2.16.288 also added the ability to draw on pictures. Snapchat users will be familiar with this ability. Users can also place emoticons and add text to images before sending them.
