In addition to these are 5 new Whatsapp updates you may be seeing on your phones soon.
The new Whatsapp features include a QR code option for saving contacts, animated sticker packs and video call updates;
1. QR Code for saving contacts
Whatsapp is giving you a personal QR Code that can be shared with new friends, so they can easily add your contact. Your new friends will just have to scan your QR Code to save your number. This offers a faster option to save new contacts rather than reading your number out to them.
2. Animated Stickers
Whatsapp is currently rolling out a feature that allows you to download and share animated stickers. With this addition, you can bring life to your sticker packs.
3. Dark Mode for Desktop
Whatsapp is extending the dark mode theme to computers.
4. Video Call Improvements (Group)
Up to 8 people can now participate in a group video chat. Not only that, but Whatsapp also allows you to focus on and maximize a particular participant’s video to full screen.
Whatsapp has also added a video icon for groups with 8 or fewer people to make it easier to start video calls
5. Voice Message Update (Concept)
This one is a concept created by WABeta Info, so there’s no guarantee that it may be available in later updates.
When you are listening to a voice note within a chat, you cannot switch to a different chat. Doing so will stop the voice note, forcing you to stay in the chat while you listen.
This concept called Voice Message heads allows you to continue to listen to voice notes while you’re in a different chat.
