WhatsApp last month got rid of its $1 (approximately Rs. 68) annual subscription fee. Until now,WhatsApp asked some users to pay an annual fee for using the app after the first year of use - though as many of us experienced, most users were not asked to pay after a year, and instead were given extensions each year.

Earlier this month the messaging company hit 1 billion monthly active user mark, levelling itself with Google's free email service, Gmail. As per the latest stats, WhatsApp witnesses 42 billion messages per day, 1.6 billion photos per day, 250 million videos per day, and has 1 billion groups.
It has been reported that WhatsApp could soon introduce a feature to allow its users to integrate their Facebook account with the instant messaging and voice calling app. The version 2.12.413 of WhatsApp for Android reveals company's intention to allow users to link the messaging service with their respective Facebook account.

WhatsApp has increased its group limit from 100 to 256. The limit was increased from 50 to 100 back in November 2014. This new feature is currently available only in the beta version of WhatsApp for Android v2.12.429 or later, but it is expected to roll out for other users and platforms soon. 

The latest version that can be downloaded from the official website.
