WhatsApp has been a popular messaging app since its launch in 2009. With over 2 billion monthly active users, it is one of the most widely used messaging apps in the world. To keep up with the ever-changing technological landscape, WhatsApp has been consistently releasing updates to improve the user experience and enhance the app’s functionality. In this article, we will explore some of the new updates that WhatsApp has released recently.
WhatsApp’s disappearing messages
Another new feature that WhatsApp has released recently is disappearing messages. This feature allows users to send messages that disappear after a set period, which can range from 7 days to 24 hours. The disappearing messages feature is useful for users who want to send temporary messages that don’t need to be saved for posterity.
WhatsApp’s view once feature
WhatsApp has also released a “view once” feature that allows users to send photos and videos that can only be viewed once. After the recipient views the photo or video, it disappears from the chat. This feature is useful for sending sensitive information or personal content that the sender doesn’t want to be saved permanently.
WhatsApp’s multi-device support
WhatsApp has been testing a multi-device support feature that will allow users to use WhatsApp on multiple devices simultaneously. Currently, WhatsApp only allows users to use the app on one device at a time, which can be inconvenient for users who want to use WhatsApp on their phone and their computer or tablet. The multi-device support feature is currently in beta testing and should be released to all users soon.
WhatsApp’s voice and video calls on desktop
WhatsApp has also released a feature that allows users to make voice and video calls on their desktop. This feature is useful for users who want to make calls without having to hold their phone for an extended period. The voice and video call feature on desktop is currently only available on the WhatsApp desktop app and the WhatsApp web interface.
