WhatsApp Messenger is a freeware, cross-platform messaging and Voice over IP (VoIP) service owned by Facebook and it allows users to send text messages and voice messages, make voice and video calls, and share images, documents, user locations, and other media through their mobile App. Being the most popular messaging application across the world, WhatsApp is now working on some interesting features for both Android and iOS platforms. Some of the interesting updates found in the recent WhatsApp beta update for both of the smartphone’s operating systems. These include the much-awaited Dark Mode, Self-Destructing Messages, Hide Muted Status and Splash Screen.
Here is the update of what the up-coming features for WhatsApp on Android & iOS could bring for you:
As the name suggests, WhatsApp users have asked for a Dark Mode for quite long, as the feature has grown in popularity across other apps, as any application working on dark mode, will have a better battery performance comparatively to Normal mode. Although a Dark Mode has been spotted in earlier beta versions of WhatsApp, it is yet to be brought to its stable version. Although the feature is still under development, WhatsApp has revealed that it is getting closer to releasing a Dark Mode in the stable version of the messaging application. Screenshots of the latest WhatsApp beta version also showed dark text bubbles too.
Earlier of this year, WhatsApp has introduced the ‘Delete for Everyone’ feature for all its users. Now the messaging platform is going to introduce self-destructing messages soon. This will allow users to recall a message after 5 seconds, 1 hour, 1 day, 7 days, or even 30 days. This means, you can delete any message or picture even after 30 days and it will also be deleted from the recipient device also.
Hide muted status
The upcoming WhatsApp updates might come with a hide muted status feature. The feature has been spotted in the latest beta version. It will allow users to hide all status updates from those muted in their contact list. Under this feature, a ‘Hide’ button will be seen on the header of the muted status updates section. The hidden status updates can be restored by clicking the ‘Show’ button that will appear with them.
With the Splash Screen feature, the WhatsApp logo will appear on the screen when the application is launched for the first time. If it is running in the background, the application will have to be closed down first. The logo seems to be have a Dark Mode too and will be available on both Android and iOS platforms.
