1. MULTIPLE DEVICE SUPPORT: –
This feature of WhatsApp is currently being tested. The reason for adding this feature is that many of us have various devices. We sometimes want to message using the tool we are now holding, so WhatsApp decided to add this feature since it is in high demand. This feature lets users sign-in with their account on another machine. Once the user is logged into another device, it automatically logs out of the previous method.
2. WHATSAPP QR CODE: –
This feature will enable users to add new contacts just by scanning the QR code. In this, users will be able to display their own contacts QR code and also examine the QR code of other users and add them to their own contacts list. Android and iOS have this feature in its beta version, and it is expected that they will soon launch a stable version of the same.
Also, a similar kind of function exists, which lets users scan QR code from WhatsApp itself and use WhatsApp on a computer/laptop. In the beta versions, the option to display QR code can be opened via the settings menu.
3. SELF-DESTRUCTING MESSAGES: –
This upcoming feature of WhatsApp will be beneficial for those who are running low on storage and have problems regarding shutdowns due to storage issues. This feature was being tested by WhatsApp since last year but didn’t introduce it yet. Just the way WhatsApp status disappears after 24 hours; similarly, users will be able to send messages that disappear after a set period.
WhatsApp is going to launch a stable version of this feature shortly. A similar feature is also available in WhatsApp in that the sender of the message can delete the message for everyone in a specific period. Currently, there are no official words from the company on the availability of the feature. Still, it seems that WhatsApp will thoroughly test the functionality before releasing it for the public.
4. IN-APP BROWSER:-
WhatsApp is working on an in-app browser feature that will let users open links sent via chat within the application without having to redirect to the web browser. The motive here was to reduce the time to open relationships. It is already introduced on Twitter and LinkedIn and should work in the same way.
This feature will work on phones running on Android version 4.1 or above. Thanks to the Safe browsing feature that was added to android Oreo v8.1 last year due to this, WhatsApp will warn the user from opening up the potentially malicious link or the link that poses a threat to the user or maybe device.
5. LAST SEEN FOR SELECT FRIENDS: –
Currently, WhatsApp allows users to share their last screen status with either everyone, contacts, or no one. At the moment, you are unable to share the previously seen status with selected friends. Still, sooner or later you will get this feature on your WhatsApp, once WhatsApp rolls out this feature, you will need to update the version from Google play store, and this remains the same for availing all the above functions.
WhatsApp has rolled out some changes in the display. It has introduced dark mode to avail of this. Make sure you have updated your version than
1. Open WhatsApp
2. Go to settings
3. Go to chats
4. Click on the theme, and you will see an option as ‘Light or Dark’ click dark and dark mode is on to restore the usual theme follow the same step and click on the light this time.
WhatsApp has made many changes that you can learn about (http://www.crunchytricks.com/) and has customized WhatsApp according to the needs of the user.
