WhatsApp rolls out various in-app features to make it more engaging. The Meta-owned instant messaging app is currently developing a new feature that will inform users of end-to-end encryption details regarding status update and call functionality. It will let you know who and when viewed your status update. This will likely be available for desktop users and later rolled out to the Android platform. This feature is still under development, so the final result may differ.
“WhatsApp plans to introduce the information at the bottom of your chats list. This was expected since WhatsApp also plans to add a footer containing this information below your chats, in a future beta update of WhatsApp Desktop,” WABetaInfo noted.
If the company really intends to introduce these labels, we should expect them to be available on WhatsApp for Android beta as well, he added.
For iOS users, WhatsApp is rolling out a new feature that tells them more about contact information. This feature is already available for WhatsApp Business users on the same operating system.
The WABetaInfo wrote: “The new, redesigned interface is the same as implemented on Business Info, and it also includes a new search message shortcut. Note that when you visit Business Info, you can also view status updates submitted by businesses, but this feature is not available for standard WhatsApp accounts.
“WhatsApp is rolling out this feature in a different way: it’s true that some people who install the new WhatsApp iOS 184.108.40.206 beta may receive the new interface, but WhatsApp is also releasing the same revamped UI for some users on stable updates, including WhatsApp Business.
This is a particular test that they have already followed when releasing voice waveforms, he said.
