Messaging application WhatsApp is now available for BlackBerry Z10 users, providing they have recently updated their mobile’s software.
WhatsApp messenger allows users to message each other for free over a 3G or Wi-Fi data connection.
A native version of WhatsApp has been built for the BlackBerry 10 operating system – it offers support for push notifications and integration with BlackBerry Contacts, so there is no need for users to manually re-enter phone numbers.
To download the app, users must have upgraded their BlackBerry 10 software with the update BlackBerry is currently rolling out.
BlackBerry Z10 owners will receive a notification about new updates, but users can also check for the update manually by following these steps:
The update is about 150MB and we recommend it should only be downloaded while connected to Wi-Fi to avoid using up all your data allowance.
Improvements brought along by the update include performance enhancement for third-party apps (and new app launches due in March), fixes for Gmail calendars, improvements to the call log in the BlackBerry Hub, and camera optimisation.
