Xiaomi acknowledges WhatsApp Obsolete bug

With this update, users can now watch YouTube videos within the App. The problem is that a beta version of WhatsApp was recently placed on the Mi App Store, which got updated automatically on the smartphones. Now, the company has rectified the error and updated the Mi App store with the latest version of WhatsApp. The company has over 200 million active users in India and 1.2 billion active users in the world. The message that popped up last week on WhatsApp about the app becoming obsolete also gave users an option to "Leave Testing Program" even when they weren't enrolled in any WhatsApp testing (beta) program.

After receiving complaints regarding the issue, WhatsApp issued a statement saying that they are diagnosing the problem and will resolve it soon.

WABetaInfo said, "Fortunately, WhatsApp has worked to allow videos not to be stopped when the user changes the chat".

Select branded Android phones showing: "This version of WhatsApp became Obsolete on 13 Jan 2018".

New details about the phablet Xiaomi Mi 3 Max
Together with the rear camera is what seemed to be a fingerprint scanner also situated at the rear part of the device. This would be similar to what Apple designed for its Face ID feature that is so far exclusive to the iPhone X.

Xiaomi provided the following statement to Gadgets 360, "A few Xiaomi users reported an issue with WhatsApp on their smartphones".

Following the update, iPhone users can also drag the YouTube window around your screen without the footage stopping or pausing, in order to get a better view of your messages. The Chinese smartphone maker has accepted that this happened because of company's move of pushing out the Beta version of the instant messaging app on its Mi App Store.

WhatsApp confirmed the issue but pointed out that it was due to how their app was distributed. "We apologise for any inconvenience faced by our Mi Fans, and promise to be more vigilant going forward".

The update, which was first spotted by WABetaInfo, has started rolling out to iPhone users.
