Safe to Update WhatsApp
The issue has been resolved by itself for me. And since many of us aren't experiencing this issue, there's no need for causing more panic among the community. The original post is as follows:
Do not update to the most recent version of WhatsApp. It'll make VoiceOver not to provide any typing feedback, even if you use braille screen input.
I thought it had something to do with my phone itself and restarted my phone. I then tried typing something on WhatsApp with the issue mentioned above not resolved.
There is a reason why I don't update big name apps... like, ever.
Improvements and bug fixes tells me absolutely nothing, for one. If you're not going to take the time to tell me what's changed I'm not likely to take the time to care. So if what I have works, why mess with it? Plus, on a personal level I have issues with WhatsApp being owned by Facebook, the poor privacy practices they have. But... that's a bit beyond here.
ّيّّI Updated before seeing this post, and it is working with no issues. using latest ios13 on iphone 8 plus.
There are other options that are accessible and secure such as Signal and Tox.
No problem here either. Perhaps just a glitch on your phone.
Unfortunately, I did update, and I have run in to the same problem. As I type, I am not getting typing feedback even with Braille Screen Input. I did report this, so maybe it will get resolved.
I'm glad that no-one else other than I and Melissa are experiencing the issue so far. I hope that they address this very quickly, as typing feedback is an absolute must to use WhatsApp and its counterparts.
hi. no problems here.
I have been experiencing the same issue.
but, I think it fixed in the background
it is working fine now.
No issues here. I receive all feedback via BSI, typing, bluetooth, you name it, it works. Dunno what the issue could be for you guys. Mayb e it will just fix itself.
What phones are you guys on who are having problems?
I have no issues with my iPhone 8 running the latest iOS.
Using an iPHone SE 2016 model with latest iOS 13.4.1, no problems here with my Whatsapp using Braille-input. good luck for those who have it! Hope it gets fixed soon. What a bummer indeed! Have you guys tried closing Whatsapp from the App-Switcher and opening it up again?
Using a 6S, and everything is working perfectly here.
Already updated and no problems here, although I do use dictate most of the time so less likely to see that problem quickly.
I am using the iPhone11 Pro, and am running the latest iOS version of 13.4.1, and have the non-typing feedback. Glad for those who are not having this issue though.
Wow! The issue seems to have gotten fixed. I had done everything that I could think of, including killing the app and starting it again, restarting the phone, etc etc with no luck whatsoever. Then, it fixed itself, as if some magic happened. The world of electronics is unpredictable sometimes.
No issues for me either, maybe this thread should be deleted so it doesn't create falsepanic with people and give out misleading information. I know the original author had no intent to mislead, but based on the fact that it seems to be working maybe having this thread isn't a good idea.
Updated the thread at Mr. Wallis's request.
I just updated Whatsapp using an iPhone 8+ running IOS 13.4.1 and experience no issue.
Well, for those who have had trouble with the latest update, I did resolve this. This is definitely weird, but on my iPhone11 Pro, I had Face ID enabled. I disabled it, and everything now works normally as it should with the typing feedback. I wouldn't think that that would have anything to do with it, but there you have it! I had tried uninstalling it and reinstalling it, but that didn't help. Thought I'd share.
Another problem is that the two finger swipe up to go to the top of the screen doesn't work anymore for me in whatsapp. I also have the non typing feetback, but I can do without for a while though, i use direct touch typing and I'm pritty good with that.
The hole problem seams to be related to some settings that the users have on their phones, I'm currently investigating what they could be.
The issue is back yet again on my iPhone 7, running iOS 13.4.1. I also experience the scrubbing issue that Mr. Moritz described.
Unfortunately I am also experiencing the same problem with Whatsapp on Iphone 11 ProMax. No typing feedback whatsoever. Tried with both BSI and traditional way of typing.
Whoever suggested disabling the require face ID on the whatsapp unlock is soooo brilliant, intelligent and clever. I disabled it, and whallah, my typing feedback is back again. Even the four finger single tab to go to the top op whatsapp works perfectly again.
