WhatsApp is the most popular instant messaging app in the world. Over the years, WhatsApp has continued to add new and interesting features without compromising on ease-of-use. Facebook-owned firm is working on some interesting upcoming whatsApp features that will surely make the app more exciting and convenient.
Some of the Interesting Upcoming WhatsApp Features Includes:
Dark Mode is one of the most anticipated features of WhatsApp. The feature has been often spotted in the beta versions of the app. The Dark Mode inverts the colors to help reduce strain on eyes, especially after sunset. Google has already added the feature on some of its key applications including the Chrome browser and YouTube. Apple introduced system-wide Dark Mode with iOS 13. WhatsApp is also expected to add the feature sooner or later.
Quick Edit Media
WhatsApp is at work on a “quick edit media” feature, spotted in the recent beta version. This feature enables users to make changes to media files sent or received. To be noted, the feature is different from the existing edit tools available on WhatsApp. As per WABetainfo, now users can edit the media in-chat and share directly.
More Forwarded Info
To fight fake news and misinformation on its platform, WhatsApp last year added a “forwarded” label on messages that have been forwarded by the sender. The company is now going to improve this feature by adding a “frequently forwarded” label. Whatsapp is also working on a new feature that will tell how many times a message has been forwarded. The feature is expected to be part of the info section which tells when the message was delivered and when it was read.
QR Code – Interesting Upcoming WhatsApp Features
WhatsApp is working on making it easy to add a new contact through QR codes. WhatsApp’s QR code is said to be very similar to nametags on Instagram, expected to launch very soon. Every user will receive a unique QR code that can be shared with others. WhatsApp already uses QR code for WhatsApp Web that mirrors the phone version.
Hide Muted Status
Just like Facebook’s unfollow, WhatsApp’s ‘hide muted status’ feature hide from the Status feed, it doesn’t completely block a contact. Currently, even if you mute a status, a faded version appears at the bottom of the feed. It is reportedly improving the feature by removing the muted Status feed completely.
