WhatsApp, the most popular messaging application, is known for regularly introducing new features and improvements.
A dark mode has been rumored to debut on the application for months. Now that it is on Facebook Messenger, it is expected to be introduced to WhatsApp shortly.
Besides the dark mode, reports have insisted that there are other cool new features coming to the chatting giant soon.
Dark themes are always welcomed among people. They have been rising in popularity especially after being highly celebrated on Twitter for years and on YouTube for a while. Therefore, it is definitely one of the most anticipated upcoming WhatsApp features. It has been spotted in beta versions on several occasions and is expected to launch later this year. The dark mode feature basically changes the app background to the black color for less strain on eyes and to save battery life.
“Advanced Search” Bar
The application already has a search bar where users can search through chats, contacts and messages. However, it has been declared that WhatsApp is working on a revamped search bar allowing users to find items more easily, and to search for more complicated items. In the newer versions, users would be able to search for photos, GIFs, videos, audio, documents, links and more.
Moreover, a “recently searched” bar would present itself when the user is utilizing the tool.
The feature is still under development, but will now reportedly be available to all iOS beta app users in a future update. Being in the beta version means that it will soon be rolled out for both Android and iOS users.
Once the feature is rolled out, WhatsApp group admins won’t be able to add other users to the group without their permission.
These new WhatsApp features are going to change the way you interact with the app. We can’t wait!
