Whatsapp-01WhatsApp for iPhone receives a nice update today that introduces the ability to send multiple photos at once, URL schema support for third-party apps, and iCloud support for backing up and restoring chat history.

Users can access the iCloud chat history by navigating to WhatsApp > Settings > Chat Settings > Chat Backup in version 2.10.1 of WhatsApp.

The app also continues to be free today ahead of the company’s expected roll out of a subscription model later this year.

2.10.1:
- multi-send UI: can send multiple photos at the same time
- URL schema support for 3rd party apps (see our blog for more info)
- iCloud chat history backup and restore:
