WhatsApp, one of the most popular messaging service around the world, has frequently rolled out number of features to facilitate its users.
Recently, WhatsApp has introduced Dark Mode, increased group voice and video call limit from four to eight, restricted frequently forwarded messages to be sent to more than one chat at a time, and more.
Now, the texting service is currently working on few exciting features for future updates. Here are some of the functionalities which will surely facilitate the users.
More than one device support
WhatsApp has been testing more than one device support for months. Once enabled, the feature will let users log-in to their WhatsApp account in more than one device at the same time. Currently, users can only log in to one device at a time. Once the same account gets logged in, it automatically signs out from the first device.
WhatsApp QR Code
WhatsApp is working on a new feature that will let you add new contacts just by scanning a QR code. Users will be able to display their own contact QR code and scan the QR code of others to add them to their contacts. The feature is already available in beta versions of both the Android and iOS platforms.
This is yet another feature under testing for a long time. Just the way WhatsApp Stories disappear after 24 hours, users will soon be able to send messages that will disappear automatically after a set time period. The self-destructing messages feature has been renamed to Delete Messages. It is expected to roll out to the stable version soon.
WhatsApp has been working on an in-app browser feature that will let users open links sent over chats within the messaging application without having connection to the web browser. The in-app browser feature minimizes the time to open links. This feature is available in a lot of social media apps including Twitter.
Last seen for selected friends
WhatsApp currently allows users to share their last seen status with “contacts”, “everyone”, or no one. At the moment, you cannot share your last seen status with select few friends, but WhatsApp is working on a feature that will allow you to do just that.
