    I like how WhatsApp actually tell you WhatsIn their updates. Unlike Facebook, but yet they are both the same Organisational group.

    Cool, thanks for that. It has downloaded now.

    No Peek and Pop for chat conversations within the app, just links and pictures.

    Was also hoping for the Peek and Pop app menu to show recent chats

    Bit rubbish but its a start.

    I don't think you know what quick reply is.

    Actually, quick reply works only on iOS 9.1 beta.

    Yes, I read that somewhere after I made the post and he should've mention that he is running 9.1 beta.

    It probably has to do with 9.1 API that enables quick reply for WhatsApp.

    Isn't that a general iOS API that third party apps can use since 9.0 already?

    Well yeah, that's why I said probably, maybe something change for 9.1 or maybe it's on WhatsApp end, that when ever operates on 9.1 it triggers quick reply automatically.

    Do you see any other functions other than the new chat option when clicking the icon?

    Still unable to peek into messages. The functions are only limited to Search, New Chat and peeking into pictures and links from ongoing messages which is not what I'm looking for =(

    They've updated it for 3D Touch but not for quick replies which is annoying.

    Quick Reply in WhatsApp is available in the update. However, you need at least iOS 9.1 (beta) to have it work, unfortunately. Fortunately, I am running that beta, so I can use Quick Reply already. :)

    I think as well that 3D Touch could be used to peek into messages. Like the ability to peek into photos and links, but peeking into messages really feels like it should be there either.

    You can peek into web links etc from withint chats but I don't see what time would be saved by peeking into messages. How do you mean exactly?

    Well, that you can peek into the last message received from the other. Or something like that.

    I like being able to peek into mails for example. No switching between pages. Just a light press on the mail, that's it. Not interested? Just leave finger from the screen and boom, it's gone. :p

    I'm looking for the ability to peek at messages without having it marked as read. it'll save lots of explaining and relationship issues =x
