Talking about the new features of Koo, it is likely to bring the WhatsApp-like group features. They are working on an open community experience, which is similar to what we have seen on WhatsApp in the form of groups.

Users can talk within a community with a common interest.

The next feature mentioned above is Live Video. Koo is expected to bring this feature soon and it will be limited only to the significant account holders. This feature will let users stream videos to specific chat rooms.


When it comes to the availability of these new features, it is expected that the WhatsApp Group-like feature could be rolled out in the first quarter of this year.
