WhatsApp Will Soon Release 5 New Features: Check Here to Know the Details

by October 9, 2023 0 comments

The popular instant messaging service, owned by Meta, is allegedly working on a number of new features to make its application more user-friendly. This is fantastic news for WhatsApp users. A secret code feature for restricted conversations, a search function for the Updates page, a feature for pinned messages, a revamped chat attachment menu, and a privacy feature to hide the IP address in calls are all included.

These new capabilities, according to a report from WABetaInfo, are now accessible to beta testers and will be made available to ordinary users in the upcoming weeks.

1. Secret code function

The Meta-owned app is developing a passcode feature for locked chat rooms. The feature is different from the phone’s master passcode and gives users more control over their locked conversations. 

This enhancement improves the privacy of your conversations even if someone gets access to your phone. Locked conversations are always listed in a separate section that can only be accessed via phone PIN or biometric authentication. 

2. Check the updates tab

A search button is now available on the top app bar, allowing you to search for status updates, followed channels and even other confirmed channels.

3. Confirmed messages feature

Soon, WhatsApp users will be able to highlight a message by pinning it to the top of their conversations, giving other people access to important or frequently referenced messages.

4. Updated chat plugin menu

Users will get an updated menu of chat plugins with a new and modern style. The updated menu still has the process of sharing different types of content, but thanks to the latest changes, it is now clearer and more intuitive.

5. Privacy feature to protect IP address in calls

This feature allows users to experience an extra level of security during voice and video calls, as WhatsApp makes it difficult for other people to obtain your IP address.

Meta plans to launch Ad-Free Subscription plan

In the meantime, Meta, the parent company of WhatsApp, is thinking about introducing an ad-free membership package in India by 2024.

This thought, according to a Mint story, comes as the internet giant is attempting to launch a comparable scheme in the European Union (EU) to comply with local privacy laws. The digital behemoth wants to monetize all of its channels globally.
