Being one of the popular apps these days, WhatsApp has already added several unique innovations like Doodle, sending GIFs, and much more. Also many are still under speculations, one of the most anticipated features is video calling support.
However, WhatsApp seems to look into users' grievances and it is all set to roll out three new features. Getting added to groups without permission, and no security options for private chats have been one of the longstanding issues for every WhatsApp user which the company is solving now.
Here are those three new features that have come up in the Android Beta version recently.
#1: Get Invited in the Groups with Public Group Invite Links
It has been a very annoying problem when you start getting notifications from public groups which you're not even aware of.
Now WhatsApp has introduced Public Group Invite Links which you need to send before adding someone in as a participant.
Once it has been sent to the person, the person will get a message like 'Do you want to join 'ABC' group? This group is created by XYZ and has BCD participants' along with a join group and cancel option. You can choose any of the two options.
#2: Quick Media Forward Option
Now forwarding a media attachment in WhatsApp has been made easier with a 'Quick Media Forward Option'. The beta users will get to see a forward button on the immediate right side. Just tap on it, select the desired contact and forward.
#3: Protect Your Private Chats with Password
Privacy has been a major concern for many WhatsApp users. So, in order to make the chatting experience more convenient, the Facebook-owned company is going to introduce password protection option. However, it is still under testing.
