New features on WhatsApp

WhatsApp the messaging platform is at the helm of social media applications. Run by Facebook one of the four Big Tech companies, its features complement those of its sister platforms like Instagram and Facebook. So if any feature exists on one of these platforms, expect it to show up on all eventually. For instance Stories. By imitating the Snapchat model of quick short-lived stories, Instagram mastered it, further emulating it on Facebook and WhatsApp.

In a big to keep the app updated and fresh, new features are introduced every once in awhile. Take a look at what to expect!

WhatsApp regularly updates the app with new features. It also tests unreleased features on its beta app for Android and iPhone. Recently, WhatsApp has been focusing on privacy and control of spam on the platform. It has rolled out features to help curb these issues on WhatsApp.

In terms of UI change, the app will soon roll our dark mode on Android and iPhone. WhatsApp dark mode is expected to arrive with iOS 13 and Android Q update. While we wait for that, there are other features available now on WhatsApp. If you’re a frequent WhatsApp user, these are some features you can use right now. WhatsApp has confirmed its new exciting disappearing messages feature which, once enabled, will make new messages sent in individual or group chats disappear after seven days.

As per the information provided on the support page, enabling the settings will not affect the messages previously sent or received in chat. While the users can themselves turn disappearing messages on and off for individual chats, in a group chat, only the admins will get to use the feature. With this, if a user does not open WhatsApp in the seven-day period, the message will disappear, but its preview might still be displayed in notifications until the App is opened. The feature, as per the App, will not work if the disappearing message is forwarded, and in case the user creates a backup, however, when the user restores from a backup.

As per the settings for media download, if auto-download is turned on the receiving phone the images, videos will be automatically saved on the device. There, however, is no option of customizing the time frame after which the messages will be deleted.

WhatsApp is hard at work making its hugely-popular app even better. Over the past few weeks, we’ve seen the launch of disappearing messages which, as the name suggests, makes text messages self-destruct after a week, coupled with the introduction of a new storage setting designed to allow users to quickly find and remove content filling up their precious memory.

And now, it seems WhatsApp is working on two more updates – one aimed at Android users, and another designed for those with an iPhone.

The first change that’s coming to Android looks set to allow users of this Google-powered operating system to access more exciting wallpapers than what’s currently available.

As spotted by the team at WABetainfo it appears that there will be a total of 32 bright wallpapers and another 29 designed for dark mode. It seems you’ll even be able to set unique background patterns for different chats and adjust exactly how they look to suit your tastes.

This upgrade is currently in the beta phase of testing but a launch could come soon.
