Whatsapp, World’s most popular and addictive messaging app. It has 450 million monthly average users. While you may use it every day, you might be unaware of some features. There are several features under testing in beta mode, and I’m going to describe few features that were found in beta and are most likely to be introduced in the next version of WhatsApp.
WhatsApp today has more than a billion users who are actively sending messages and communicating over voice around the globe. Facebook acquired the company, and the messaging app is completely free to use. WhatsApp developers had initially released the phone number-based messaging app for simple communication; however, it took to the internet like a storm. The popularity of the free messaging app has got the developers to keep upgrading more and more features on WhatsApp. Each feature is rolled out after thoroughly testing for efficiency, data saving, and performance.
YouTube Videos Will Play Directly In WhatsApp
The iOS beta version of WhatsApp had added a feature of YouTube integration. The will enable users to view YouTube videos within the app without making them leave WhatsApp or open the YouTube app. The feature is not available for the Android, but we believe that WhatsApp will soon roll out this feature for Android users.
Make Money Transactions on WhatsApp
UPI (Unified Payment Interface) is another most expected feature that could reach millions of WhatsApp users in India. This UPI based money transaction feature will let users transfer money without any trouble.
Message Recall Feature
This feature first noticed in December 2016 on iOS (Beta version). However, the feature is yet to arrive. Users will get a five-minute window to reverse the sent messages. Users can recall text messages, images, videos, GIFs, and even status replies.
You can share your live Location
The live location feature will allow users to share their live location with their contacts just like we do on Facebook and Instagram. Well, this feature is advantageous concerning security because it will allow your contacts to track your location in real-time.
You can edit ‘sent’ messages
Here is the most advantageous and most awaited feature expected to roll out soon. That is similar to ‘recall’ functionality. However, this will let users edit sent messages. We have seen the unsend option on the Instagram. But there we can unsend the message even when the user on the other side read it. Here in WhatsApp, we can edit the messages before the receiver reads it.
So, some of these features found in beta version and they are most likely to be introduced in the next version or any upcoming version of WhatsApp. So, What do you think about this?
