WhatsApp is one of the most used messaging apps in the world. We keep on bringing new features to enhance our user experience. Today we are going to talk about such features which are going to come in 2023.
WhatsApp has millions of users in India, to whom the company keeps on making new updates every day to give them a better experience. In the last year, the app released many new features to enhance the user interface and security. Many great features have been included from community features to 'Message Yourself'. These features make the user experience easy.
New features will come in 2023
Let us know that even in 2023, the instant messaging app is ready to launch many features to improve the experience of audio, video, and messages on its platform. WhatsApp is planning to bring some new features to its Android, iOS, and web users. Features like PiP for video calls on iOS and screen lock for the web app have been included in the new WhatsApp feature list for 2023. Let us know about these features.
This feature works in the same way as the View Once Media feature. With the help of this, WhatsApp will soon allow users to send text messages, which will automatically delete the message after opening and viewing the message. This feature allows users to keep their texts private and protect sensitive information. Soon it will be released for beta testing.
Right now you cannot use your WhatsApp account on two different devices or multiple devices simultaneously. But now WhatsApp is going to bring a feature that will let you link and sync your WhatsApp data and use the app on multiple phones with the same profile. It's being called Companion Mode, which is currently made available to some Android beta testers. Soon this feature will be available for all users.
Picture-in-picture mode will be available on iOS
The feature is already available for Android users and will soon be rolled out to all iOS users as well. PIP mode allows users to multitask and browse other apps while on a WhatsApp video call. This feature minimizes the video call window into a tiny interface that can be dragged and placed anywhere on the mobile screen while using other apps. According to WABetaInfo, WhatsApp has been testing the new feature for the past month and has rolled out the feature to some iOS beta testers.
Search messages by date
For the last few months, there is a lot of discussion among people about this feature. Searching for messages by date will allow users to scroll back and find their conversations from a specific date. This feature is currently in beta testing.
screen lock on WhatsApp desktop
Now you will be able to lock the desktop version of WhatsApp with a password. The company is working on a new feature that will allow users to protect their desktop apps by setting a password to open the app. WhatsApp already allows its Android and iOS users to set up a security code to open the app. Soon WhatsApp Web users will also be able to set a security pin for their desktop app.
Call tab on WhatsApp desktop
WhatsApp is going to bring a dedicated calls tab for its desktop app. With its help, users will be able to track and sync their WhatsApp call data with mobile and web apps. Users will see the Classes tab in the WhatsApp sidebar. The feature is currently available for some WhatsApp betas for Windows.
