Whatsapp updates are so few and far between that we should probably open a bottle of wine every time we get them. The Facebook-owned instant messenger just got another update, and you're in for a treat if you have an iPhone.
Whatsapp on iOS now has the ability to share the slo-mo videos that you can shoot from the iPhone 5S. You can also trim clips down right in the app, which is handy. There's also support to add Snapchat-like captions to pictures and archive chats and groups. And oh, this is the first version of Whatsapp that actually works on the iOS 8 beta without crashing every 10 seconds.
Now bring on that voice calling already!
