New Delhi: Instant messaging app WhatsApp is reportedly working on a new feature that would let users mute their videos before posting those to their friends, a report by WABetaInfo, a website that tracks WhatsApp, said.
The Facebook-owned company’s upcoming feature is on a beta update. “WhatsApp has just submitted a new update through the Google Play Beta Program, bringing the version up to 18.104.22.168,” WABetaInfo said.
“After updating to the latest WhatsApp beta for Android 22.214.171.124, a lot of users are now receiving the activation of Advanced Wallpaper features and Disappearing messages,” it added.
WhatsApp has also started rolling out advanced wallpaper features to more users. This feature lets users set a different wallpaper for each chat. You can choose to set one wallpaper for all chats on WhatsApp, or manually select a different one for each chat.
Earlier this month, WhatsApp launched the much-awaited ‘Disappearing Messages’ on its platform for both Android and iOS, a feature that lets you automatically delete new messages sent to a chat after seven days when turned on.
In a one-to-one chat, either person can turn disappearing messages on or off. In groups, admins will have the control on the new feature.
When disappearing messages is turned on, new messages sent to a chat will disappear after 7 days, helping the conversation feel lighter and more private. Once enabled, new messages sent in the individual or group chat will disappear after seven days. The most recent selection controls all messages in the chat.
