Whatsapp has been adding a lot of new features in recent days. The upcoming features of WhatsApp are going to grab your attention and make your life easier.
Thanks to WABetaInfo, we know about the features much before its release. Let’s take a look at all of them.
- New calling interface
WhatsApp calls are everyone’s backup when a normal call doesn’t work. It is one of the most popular features of the app. WhatsApp is working on a new interface for calling that will make it look more compact and modern. The entire interface will look better, especially for group calls. The buttons at the bottom will be the same. The update will be seen in both Android and iOS users in their future beta versions. The leaked screenshot on WABetaInfo’s website shows that the new interface is on iOS, so we can expect to see it on iOS first!
- End to end encryption indicators
WhatsApp will add new indicators to the app’s chats and calls that will let users know that their conversation is end-to-end encrypted. Previously there were no indicators for the same. Check out this screenshot to know more.
According to this, iOS beta users will see this update first and then Android. WhatsApp will test it for beta users first and then roll it for stable users.
- Quick replies
Those who use WhatsApp Business will see a quick replies shortcut in the app. It will let business owners select one of the template questions to their customers as quick replies. To use this feature, WhatsApp Business users have to type ‘/’ in the chat and select a preset message.
- More control for group admins
WhatsApp will add more controls for group admins that will allow them to delete messages from other people of the group. It will permit the admins to control and regulate unethical and unwanted behaviour in the group and avoid any sort of confusion.
WhatsApp will also introduce ‘Communities’ that will give the admins to invite users via a ‘community invite link’ and then the admin can message other members about the new members. Communities will support making groups within groups. With the introduction of communities, there will be a slight distinction between groups and communities to identify each of them. It will be beneficial for students who want to do group projects at large and simultaneously in small groups.
