https://dk2dyle8k4h9a.cloudfront.net/The Latest WhatsApp Updates To Make Your Life Easier

It’s the season for WhatsApp business app to receive some great changes. From chat filters to restrict groups, WhatsApp is rolling out changes that we all were waiting for quite sometime now. Nothing can compare WhatsApp’s credibility when it comes to the chat feature. It is as impressive, intuitive, and simple as it should be right from the time the services were rolled out. And, this season, the changes are going to be much more prominent for the users. Prior to I take you further, here is the glimpse of all that is going to change:

  • Chat filter (for the business app only) and sticker album may be coming to WhatsApp
  • In-app video support to Facebook and Instagram
  • Restricted group features

Allow me to spill the beans on these offerings!!

WhatsApp is rolling out Chat filter exclusive for the business app. It will take some time for the messaging app to roll out the change for the common users. As per the feature when applied successfully, the users will get able to search anything by applying filters to the chat history to search any specific information. Tapping on search will open a filter list that users can apply. Besides this, some sticker emojis will also be made available for the users.

Whatsapp features 

In-app video support to Facebook and Instagram is for the iOS users. And, with this change, the users are allowed to watch Facebook and Instagram videos inside WhatsApp. This means tapping on a Facebook or Instagram link would open the link in the WhatsApp instead of opening in the respective app platform.

Restricted groups feature, on the other hand, is an offering for the group admins. Talking more about the rollout, WhatsApp's fan site WaBetaInfo tells the feature will give more power to admins. With this rollout, the group admins can send the messages to a group. All other members can only read the messages and cannot reply to the same. 

Along with these major changes, other tweaks will come in the form of Request Info and to the iOS business app (already available for Android users). As per the information available on Request Info, WhatsApp will now allow users to download WhatsApp data by using request Info feature to export or port to another app. In addition to this, WhatsApp business, already available for Android users, will connect businesses and customers.
