Chat With WhatsApp: Users can also receive updates directly from WhatsApp, and if they do not want to receive notifications, they can always archive, mute, or block the chat.
WhatsApp is one of the most popular instant messaging apps. In order to stay relevant among users, the Meta-owned company announces updates from time to time. But we often fail to understand all the details related to the certain announcement. In order to help users in such situations, WhatsApp is now available on WhatsApp!
The instant messaging app has launched its official chat on the platform where users can receive the latest information. This will let users stay abreast of any development related to the app, including updates and tips on how to use WhatsApp on Android and iOS.
According to WABetaInfo, the chat comes marked with a green badge. The report said that the chat will have tips and tricks on how to use the app, as well as information on new features and updates.
The verified badge makes sure that users will not fall victim to scams or phishing attempts that imitate the official WhatsApp account. Moreover, the report stated that the benefit of receiving these messages in the official chat is that users can easily stay notified without having to search for the latest information themselves.
The chat will provide updates directly to users and if they do not want to receive notifications, they can simply mute or block the chat.

The report further mentioned that the first message sent by WhatsApp in the official chat explains how to make messages disappear and links to an official FAQ.
Disappearing messages is a feature that allows users to send messages that disappear from both the sender and receiver's chat after a certain period of time.
The new WhatsApp official chat is currently available to some random users, and it is unclear how people are selected since it seems to be a random selection, the report said.
Meanwhile, Meta has introduced a new WhatsApp app for Windows that loads faster and features an interface similar to the mobile version of the app.
Users can now host group video calls with up to eight people and audio calls with up to 32 people.
