Upgrade Your Chats! WhatsApp’s Hot New Features Land

WhatsApp has introduced several new features to enhance the user experience and make the app more user-friendly. One such feature is screen sharing during video calls, which allows users to share their screens without having to use other apps like Google Meet, Zoom, Discord, or Skype. Users can start a video call with an individual or group of people and tap on the ‘Share’ icon at the bottom of the screen. Once granted permission, the app will become visible to all participants on the call.

Although millions of people use WhatsApp as a texting service, users were previously unable to send high-definition (HD) images on the platform. However, WhatsApp recently released an update that allows users to send HD images and plans to add the option to send HD videos soon. To send an HD image, users must open a chat and select the desired image.

Voice chats in groups are also introduced, similar to Discord’s voice chat and Twitter Spaces. Group members receive a silent notification instead of a ringing tone, making it easier for them to join or leave the conversation. The group icon will automatically change to a waveform icon and display a ‘Connect’ button when a ‘voice chat’ is initiated.

Editing sent media captions is now possible on WhatsApp, similar to the messaging app’s ‘Edit message’ feature. Users can edit captions for up to 15 minutes after they are sent by tapping on the media message with the caption.

WhatsApp allows users to create groups without names. The group name will be automatically generated based on the participants in the group for groups with up to six participants. If someone is not on your contact list, they will only see your phone number and not your name. The group names will be extracted from your contact list.

In this digital age, group calls and videoconferencing are becoming more important, and WhatsApp is currently improving its features in these areas. The latest updates will improve the quality of both audio and video during group conversations to make them better for users. Also, WhatsApp is working to make group calls bigger so that more people can join.

Protecting user privacy has always been a top priority for WhatsApp, and the latest update only strengthens this position. End-to-end encryption protects the privacy and safety of WhatsApp calls, messages, photos, and videos that are shared. WhatsApp is different from other messaging apps because it offers a high level of privacy. 

However, WhatsApp is still in the process of rolling out these features, so it may take some time before they become available on your device.
