WhatsApp is developing a new algorithm to improve Status updates. It is also rolling out quick reactions for users and adding multi-device sync. These features will be available to all users of the messaging app. The new update is available for iPhone, Android, and Windows users. Read on to learn more about the new feature.
WhatsApp is working on a new algorithm to improve Status updates
WhatsApp is working on a new algorithm to help users view Status updates more accurately. This algorithm is set to come soon, and it will allow users to see the most relevant updates and messages first. The new algorithm will only touch the phones and not the servers, so it will not affect your privacy. Moreover, it will give users more choices in which Status updates to see.
It is adding quick reactions
WhatsApp is getting closer to Instagram and will soon be adding quick reactions to status updates. According to WABetaInfo, the app is developing the feature for the desktop version, and iOS and Android users will see it in the future. The quick reaction option will let you send emojis in response to a status update. It is similar to how you can react to a photo or a video in Instagram.
You can hide your last seen status from some of your friends. WhatsApp is also working on adding rich link previews, which will allow you to see more details about the content you are sharing. You can also send files up to 2GB in size through the app, as well as end-to-end encryption. Moreover, you can create groups of up to 512 members.
The company will also add an Instagram Reels section to the messaging app. This feature was introduced last year after the government banned TikTok. WhatsApp will also make it possible to send large files to contacts or globally. However, before you can use this feature, you must ensure you are using the latest version of the app.
WhatsApp is also planning to implement a multi-device sync feature. This will enable you to link up to 10 devices to your account. By adding a second mobile device to your account, you can access WhatsApp on the other devices. If you want to send messages to multiple contacts, you can also set up a group that allows you to send messages to many people at once. This feature will be available for both iOS and Android users.
WhatsApp also has the ability to delete messages. As of now, messages can only be deleted within 1 hour, but users will soon be able to delete messages that are more than a week old. However, the new limit may be temporary, and WhatsApp might make some changes before the update is released to the public.
The new features will come as beta updates. The beta testers have already reported faster performance on the desktop version. WhatsApp also added a new gallery view to the Windows app. This gallery view is similar to the one in the WhatsApp Desktop (Electron version). Furthermore, the update also syncs your recently used stickers across the desktop and mobile app.
It is adding a multi-device sync feature
WhatsApp is working on a new feature that will allow users to sync their chats across multiple devices. This feature will be available for iOS and Android devices. The current multi-device feature is limited to computers. It is unclear when the feature will be available for other platforms.
WhatsApp will also make its message notifications include profile pictures of the sender, which will appear on the lock screen and notification center. This makes it easier to identify the sender. Other new features include the ability to pause recordings and resume recording. It will be available on iOS devices in the near future. WhatsApp also added more minor updates. Users can expect a new version of the app in 2020.
In addition to improved cross-platform functionality, WhatsApp is working on a companion mode. This mode will sync chat history across multiple devices. However, it is unclear how comprehensive the feature will be. Telegram has introduced a similar feature, which allows users to link an additional mobile device. This feature is great for users who use multiple devices for various tasks.
WhatsApp is also introducing new tools for admins of groups. Admins will be able to send announcement messages to selected groups or to the entire group. These new features should reduce the overload for users who are part of larger groups.
The multi-device sync feature will make it easier to share status updates across multiple devices. In addition, users will also be able to save messages in group chats, which will enable them to delete problematic messages. The ability to save messages will be helpful for businesses, who can integrate the feedback and questions of their customers into their products. Besides, it will help them improve the quality of their content.
It is rolling out a companion mode for iOS users
Companion mode allows users to link two devices to the same WhatsApp account. Users can do this through the WhatsApp browser, desktop apps, or QR code scanning. The Companion mode is currently available only for Android users and is due to roll out to iOS in two weeks. However, it is not clear if the Companion mode will be available on iPads.
Previously, WhatsApp only supported one phone per account, but the app now supports multiple devices. This allows you to send and receive messages on two different devices at the same time. What’s more, the chat history from your original device can be migrated to the new device. You will still need a cable or internet connection to use the companion mode. However, you can only connect two devices at a time.
The new feature is part of WhatsApp’s ongoing effort to offer multi-device functionality. Last year, the company introduced a beta version of this feature that allows users to access their WhatsApp account on two or more different devices. This is not the same as the multi-device feature that Facebook introduced, but it does give users the ability to use the app on other devices without being tied to their primary smartphone.
WhatsApp has rolled out a number of updates in recent months that include 512 members per group and emoji reactions to messages. Now, the company is preparing to roll out its ‘Companion Mode’ feature for iOS users as well as Android users.
Companion mode also allows users to use the same account on more than one device. This means users can log in from their secondary devices using the same WhatsApp account and access the same chat history on both. This feature is currently in beta, and users may experience delays in the process.
