So we can say, Whatsapp is again ready to amaze users with its new features. Here are 5 new features which will make our life easier and use Whatsapp more interesting.
1. Click to chat
This new feature will help users to get rid of saving numbers. Whatsapp has introduced “click to chat” feature which will allow users to send messages without having to save the numbers. Users can now send messages to the numbers that are not saved in their contact list. Sometimes we need to save numbers even if when we are going to have one-time conversations. So this feature will help you to get rid of adding unnecessary numbers in your contact list.
How to use :
To use this feature, Whatsapp allows you to create a link using which you can start a chat with an unsaved number.
2. Link instantly to Facebook
Whatsapp’s parent company Facebook has added a new feature for some of its beta users. This new feature allows you to share the link directly to your contacts via “share on Whatsapp” option. So now you don’t have to go through the share option in the drop-down menu. You can now share the link over Facebook via a single click because of this new update.
3. Group audio calls
Whatsapp is testing another interesting feature “Group audio calls”. This feature will enable the users to do group audio calls on iOS devices. This feature will be similar to the conference call feature in a normal call. Group audio calls will be similar to the current audio call feature with some minor changes. Though this a great update to connect to more than one person at the same time, the number of people who can use this feature at the same time is still unknown.
Along with this iOS update, they are testing another update for its Android users, which will be the “select all” option. This new feature will allow users to select all the new messages and mark them as read/unread. It will also allow users to quickly delete the chats.
4. Whatsapp media visibility feature
This feature is added to its Android beta version. “Media visibility feature” will allow users to control and manage the visibility of Whatsapp media in their phone gallery. This new update will allow users to decide whether they want Whatsapp media content to be displayed in the gallery or not. Though this media visibility feature already exists in iOS, this would be something new and exciting for Android users.
5. Account Information
Recently Whatsapp has introduced a new feature to its app, which is “Account Information” feature. This feature will enable users to seek the report of their account information. This information doesn’t include messages. Whatsapp creates the report within 3 days and it is available for download for a few weeks. This report can be shared with another app.
These are some exciting updates to look forward to.
