Why whatsapp is so yesterday?

When whatsapp is launched, everybody is talking about it and suddenly it became so popular and famous to an extend that in some companies, they use it to create a group chat to discuss things about work. At that time, whatsapp’s tagline was “SMS is so last century”, I agree with it but not now.

Today, I would say whatsapp is so yesterday and these are the reasons why:
1. There are only a few notification tones for users to choose.
2. Cannot set different tones for different sender.
3. Cannot “pre-download” messages.
4. No PC apps.

So my suggestion is to as below:
1. Let user upload and choose custom notification tones.
2. iOS already enable user to set custom notification tone for different sender.
3. iMessage already pre-downloading message.
4. LINE and facebook messenger apps already have a desktop version. It will be easier for users to chat via a normal computer keyboard than squeezing our fingers on the small touch screen. Just more convenient.
5. Some telcos support multi-sim ONE line, so you should allow us to have one number registered on 2 whatsapp on different devices.
