New WhatsApp features: Hardly a day goes by when you don’t hear about a new WhatsApp feature – either being tested by the company or rolled out. However, what users fail to understand at times is that the roll-out happens in phase-wise manner, before the feature is available for all users. A feature that is available in the beta version of the app, might not be accessible to all users. Here is a look at all the features and updates that have actually been rolled out by the instant messaging platform.
Animated stickers: Stickers on WhatsApp do a great job at expressing emotions. They are one of the fastest growing ways people communicate on WhatsApp, with billions sent every day. WhatsApp rolled out animated sticker packs as a more fun and expressive way to communicate.
QR codes: WhatsApp recently made it easier than ever to add a new contact. Soon when you meet someone new, you will be able to scan their QR code to add them to your contacts. No more tapping in their digits one at a time.
Group video calls: Now, users can video call upto 8 people at once! In addition to this, the new improvements make it easier to focus on one person by letting the user press and hold to maximize a participant's video to full screen. In group chats of 8 or less, users can easily start a group video call with just one tap.
