New WhatsApp feature: WhatsApp has launched a new beta version of the platform. The new update is available via the Google Play Beta Program. The new update will be introducing some new features which includes a new call button. According to a report by WABetaInfo, a new call button for the instant messaging application is under works.
A call button is usually placed on the top right corner of any chat. As of now, WhatsApp has two different call buttons – one for voice, other for video. The new call button will limit this to just one call button. The user will be given the choice to select on the next window.
However, this new feature is currently only being tested for WhatsApp Business chats.
This isn’t the only change coming to WhatsApp. WhatsApp is likely to add a catalogue shortcut next to the call button for Business accounts. The merging of the video and voice call buttons will initially be implemented on the WhatsApp Business accounts but is expected to make it to the Messenger version as well.
This new catalogue button will help businesses exhibit their range of products without leaving the instant messaging application.
Recently, the instant messaging platform had introduced an advisory page where it will give a “comprehensive list” of “security updates and associated Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE)”.
While the messaging platform does list these vulnerabilities on MITRE, Cert-in and other similar code libraries across the world, its own list will come with more context on the bugs and its fixes.
“The details included in CVE descriptions are meant to help researchers understand technical scenarios and does not imply users were impacted in this manner,” a note from WhatsApp said, suggesting that a lot of the bugs, though reported, don’t impact users.
