WhatsApp had only one feature missing, but even that is no longer the issue. WhatsApp group call feature is expected to come to both the platforms now.
As of now, the iOS beta version has seen this feature. The version of the update is 2.17.70. It is still not a confirmation if this feature is there or not, so take it with a pinch of salt.
Ever since Facebook acquired WhatsApp, a lot of features are coming in. This includes sending documents as well as stories. Sending documents was a much-needed support as it was the only feature which put WhatsApp behind other messaging platforms.
However, people have mixed emotions when it comes to WhatsApp stories. Although it becomes very boring to see the same story on Instagram, Facebook as well as WhatsApp stories. I still like the story feature very much. One reason is that many users are still not present on all the platforms unlike me.
One very useful update of WhatsApp is live location update. This is a very useful feature to keep a track on your near and dear ones.
Adding group calling feature can be very messy as I’m not a fan of group calls. But it will truly make WhatsApp an all-rounder messenger plus calling app. Unfortunately, this feature is only being tested on iOS beta testers and is probably sometime before the feature is available to Android beta users or Android users in general.
Do share your opinion on this.
WhatsApp for Android might soon get a new calling interface and some more desirable features.
WhatsApp is an amazing instant messaging, calling and media exchange app. It has evolved wonderfully over the past couple of years. The developers have worked well in keeping the features top notch and providing a regular update.
WhatsApp Messenger App is available for Android, iOS and Windows phone. But this update feature is specifically for Android users. iOS and Windows phone users might also get the update eventually.
A couple of days back, WhatsApp rolled out a better version of live location sharing feature of WhatsApp. The new calling UI update brings very cleaners and neater look for both videos as well audio calls.
Another very talked about feature is ‘pinning the chat’ option. In this feature, you can pin the chat head of 3 people. Se pinned chats will always rank 1st, 2nd and 3rd in your WhatsApp chat list whether there is a message or not.
As of now, you can pin only 3 chats. However, it’s expected to pin more than 3 chats when the feature rolls put officially. However, the ‘Pin Chat’ feature was enabled automatically for the WhatsChrome version.
Apart from the above-mentioned updates, a couple of more features were noticed by the people of WABetaInfo. One of the features was a video to GIF converter while recording video within the app.
The other features were some hidden reference in WhatsApp Web about iPad and iPod compatibility. This shows that WhatsApp Web work on iPads just as it runs on WhatsChrome.
There have been some issues with WhatsApp for Android 2.17.167 beta where users can’t unpin chats and the app becomes unstable. Hence, it’s advised that you don’t sign up for the beta version as the app becomes unstable after some releases.
