A while back we reported that WhatsApp for Android would be getting a Holo makeover, although this was in the beta APK which we guess some of you guys might have avoided in favor of the final release. Well the good news is that if you dug the Holo UI, you’re in luck because WhatsApp for Android has been updated and is now available for download via the Google Play store. As expected this version will also feature the same Holo UI, but we expect that there are probably some minor bugs in the beta that have also been fixed along the way. If you have downloaded the beta, perhaps you might want to update to the official release.
The app will be free for the first year, but after that users will be charged a subscription fee of $0.99 a year. However it seems that if you plan to use the app for maybe 3 or 5 years, there are apparently discount packages for long-term use. So, who’s downloaded the updated WhatsApp and what do you guys make of the new UI?
