WhatsApp has a bunch of new and upcoming features. Here are four WhatsApp features that are available to all users, Whatsapp-Features.
WhatsApp is one of the most awaited apps for new features. The popular messaging app is used by more than 1.5 billion users globally. In India alone, WhatsApp has 400 million users, Whatsapp-Features.
WhatsApp regularly updates the app with new features. It also tests unmanaged features on its beta app for Android and iPhone.
In terms of UI changes, the app will soon roll out our dark mode on Android and iPhone. WhatsApp Dark Mode is expected to come with iOS 13 and Android Q update.
While we wait for it, other features are now available on WhatsApp. If you are a frequent WhatsApp user, these are some features that you can use now,Whatsapp-Features
WhatsApp introduced fingerprint unlock for Android users. This feature is located in the ‘Privacy’ section of the app. Enabling this will enable users to unlock WhatsApp with their fingerprint.
Users can also choose to hide content from WhatsApp notifications. Fingerprint unlock is available for WhatsApp beta users. For iOS, all iPhone and iPad users can unlock WhatsApp via Face ID or Touch ID.
WhatsApp made its ‘often forwarded’ tool official earlier this month. As the name suggests, this tag is meant to notify users of messages that have been forwarded more than five times. This tool is intended to alert users of spam messages which is a major issue on WhatsApp.
This feature is useful for those who send multiple voice messages over WhatsApp. Previously users had to listen to each message individually. With this feature, multiple voice messages sent simultaneously will now play continuously. Users do not need to go back and play the next voice message.
For those unaware, there is a way to avoid those pesky WhatsApp groups. This privacy feature allows users to decide whether someone or only their contacts can add them to WhatsApp groups. Users can also set the option to anyone for WhatsApp groups. As a result the user will receive an invitation to join the WhatsApp group which will expire in 72 hours.
