-Save and delete photo – If you want to save a memorable photo to your camera roll or delete a sent photo from a chat, simply press and hold the image and the options will appear.
-Faster chat load time – Now when you receive a notification and tap it to open the app, the message will be there waiting for you without any delays.
-Avatars for all chat – You can now see all avatars for groups and people, and if they’re changed on other platforms, they’ll update in the app too so you always have the latest showing.
-People list UI improvements – In 5.7, we’ve made it easier to find the people list search and filter options, so you can quickly and easily find the person you want to chat with and get started.
