WhatsApp has been working on a lot of features over the past year, including joinable groups calls, a new WhatsApp call UI, sending photos in high quality, and a lot more. Though one feature that people are quite looking forward to is the multi-device support. The feature would let you use WhatsApp on Desktop devices even when your phone is not connected to the internet. In a new interview with TechRadar today, WhatsApp gave us a sneak peek at the multi-device device feature and how it would work.
WhatsApp has always compressed photos that you sent to your friends or contacts on the messaging service. The compression was fine back in the day, but WhatsApp downsizing your photos to 720p resolution is definitely not enough in this day and age. Thankfully, this is about to change soon.
WhatsApp has started rolling out its new call UI for iPhone users. The new UI first made its way to WhatsApp’s beta channel for iPhone giving users an early look at it a couple of weeks ago.
WhatsApp is rolling out a new update that makes its group calls even better. Starting today, you’ll be able to join group video and audio calls on WhatsApp even after they’ve started. This means even if you don’t answer the call during the ring, you can join the call later on.
WhatsApp has been testing a slew of new features. Just yesterday, we got a glimpse at the upcoming multi-device feature. Now WhatsApp has released version 22.214.171.124 beta on Testflight. The latest version arrives with a revamped calling interface and a new Ring button.
Back in June, WhatsApp’s CEO Will Cathcart confirmed that the multi-device feature the company has been working on will be available next month. Ahead of the feature’s release, WABetaInfo has been able to dig up some screenshots giving us our first look at how the multi-device feature would look on Desktop.
One of the advantages of using iMessage over WhatsApp is the ability to send photos and videos in the highest quality available. However, it seems that the leverage is going away. According to a new report by WABetaInfo, WhatsApp is working on an option that would allow you to send photos in the ‘Best Quality’ available.
WhatsApp is known to be working on a chat transfer feature for quite a while now. A new video has surfaced on Twitter, showing how the process of WhatsApp chat transfer from iOS to Android could look like.
Despite being one of the most popular messaging platforms, WhatsApp often plays catch up when it comes to implementing new features. The Facebook-owned company is yet to support multi-device support. Recent rumors hinted at incoming multi-device support for WhatsApp. As per the latest report, the multi-device support on WhatsApp is likely to have some limitations.
WhatsApp has finally solved one of the most frustrating issues with Archive chats. Once users select to archive WhatsApp chat the thread is moved to the archive section. However, the chat thread is moved back to the main area once users receive a new message from the archived chat. This changes with the latest WhatsApp beta for iOS 126.96.36.199.
