We can all safely say that no one checks their text messages anymore since it’s usually spam. Our lives revolve around WhatsApp and WhatsApp groups. The Facebook owned App is going to introduce five changes that might change the way you use the App.
1. DARK MODE
Constantly using your WhatsApp which drains your battery and gives you tired eyes? WhatsApp’s new “dark mode feature” will now give the app a darker appearance in the night, reducing the glare from the phone and also helping save battery life.
2. QUICK EDIT MEDIA
Want to edit media files you send or receive on WhatsApp? You’ll be able to do a lot more than cutting down on duration and adding text to pictures. The Quick Edit feature will allow you to make changes to files you get or send and share them directly.
3. SHARE FACEBOOK STORIES
In what seems like hope to get more users to engage with Facebook Stories, WhatsApp will now let users share a story on Whatsapp directly from their Facebook accounts. No news yet if it’s going to be available for Instagram as well. incorporated for Facebook stories initially.
4. MORE INFO ON FORWARDED MESSAGES
Constantly spammed with “forwarded as received” messages, especially on family groups? In a much needed feature, if a message is forwarded more than five times, it will now have a “frequently forwarded” label. WhatsApp will also notify users how often the message has been forwarded, in hope of controlling the spread of rumours and false information (Uncles and Aunties might not be too happy about this one).
5. QR CODE
Users will be able to add a new contact using a QR code directly. Every user will have a unique code (similar to nametags on Instagram) and you can share your code with oders (so it’s easier for them to add you)
