The update is live for manual update
Had the same issue ,just go to WhatsApp settings and disable any sending sound. can't remember the exact name but it was something like that. It worked for me.
Im from germany as well, but im sure that it will support any european language
My cell phone is the EU variant. can I update with this ROM or wait for the EU version?
Yes you can . I just did and works pretty well
It's to activate Google assistant. Just slide from the bottom corner to the center ...
If someone knows how to deactivate that'll be great.
