Coming up:  Interesting feature updates in WhatsApp!


It is already a known fact that WhatsApp is currently working on some features such as Instagram like 'Boomerang' videos and dark mode. However, it has been revealed that the messaging service will be coming up with some more features to enhance the user experience.  Some of these features are:


Audio Playback for iPhone

WhatsApp’s latest update to its beta app on iOS comes with an audio playback feature. The version allows users to play audio shared via WhatsApp right on the notification pop-up. This essentially means soon users can play a voice message or an audio file without needing to open the app and directly from the notification.


Make calls through Google Assistant

Earlier, the Google Assistant for the android phones had access to just sending text messages and normal calls. However, this new feature is going to change it all. To get started just update your WhatsApp and Google Assistant apps. Next, launch Assistant and say “Hey Google, WhatsApp video <contact name>.” The feature is currently available only for Android users.


Web Albums

One of the biggest use of WhatsApp is the sharing of photos and videos with our friends. The new feature is going to add another aspect to the photo-sharing. When we share a set of images or videos, the app will automatically club these like an album and display the same instead of individual photos one below the other. It has been reported that WhatsApp web will also have a similar feature rolled out for easier experience.


Omni Channel experience

Currently, WhatsApp doesn't support the users to access the app on multiple platforms. Although WhatsApp web exists, it essentially just mirrors the app and doesn't have any special USP. The multi-platform support is said to arrive first as a standalone app for Apple’s iPad. The version will allow both Android and iOS users to access their accounts and give them a seamless experience.
