Xiaomi acknowledges WhatsApp obsolete error and comes with a fix

WhatsApp YouTube

Currently, WhatsApp has over 1.2 billion monthly active users worldwide including 200 million across India. The fun part about this new feature is that the YouTube video continues to play even after a user exits the chat. However, Xiaomi has finally chimed in on this issue and has revealed the reason for this "obsolete" error. Xiaomi engineers explained that they accidentally uploaded a beta version of the APK on the Mi Store, which was auto updated as the auto-update option is enabled by default in the Mi App store. The bug, which left the app totally unusable, flashed a message which said "This version of WhatsApp has become Obsolete on 13-Jan-2018".

Commenting on the development, Xiaomi disclosed that a few users have reported the issue with WhatsApp over social media platforms. The new feature is available only for iOS users.

So, if you are facing the problem on your Xiaomi device, all you need to do is, first uninstall the existing WhatsApp. "We apologise for any inconvenience faced by our Mi Fans, and promise to be more vigilant going forward", stated Xiaomi in the report.




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.

WhatsApp said it is a third-party issue and today Xiaomi acknowledged the fault and said a fix is coming. The issue was raised by many Xiaomi smartphone users on Mi forums. "It was a problem with how our app is distributed, which is not under our control". Then go to the Google App store and search for WhatsApp in the search section and install the newly updated WhatsApp.
