New WhatsApp Features Possible Release
WhatsApp is also rumored to be releasing a new feature in 2022.
Previously, WhatsApp complemented user security by releasing a feature that could send images or videos that automatically disappeared after being opened once.
There is also a feature that allows the user to play the recorded voice faster or slower.
Then, what features will be released in 2022?
Here are five WhatsApp features that are expected to be released in 2022, quoted from DNA India.
1. Community Features
This feature is at first glance similar to the WhatsApp group feature, but there are slight differences from the previous group feature.
Users can use this feature to create groups within a group.
The community feature makes it easy for users to split members into smaller groups or communities.
This feature enables end-to-end encrypted user messages.
2. Privacy setting feature
Apart from security features, WhatsApp also improves privacy features.
This feature allows users to hide last seen, profile photo, status, and bio of certain contacts.
Previously, WhatsApp users could view contact information via last seen or bio.
While the settings for the appearance of the profile photo can also be set to privacy or public.
The privacy settings feature helps users who wish to avoid certain users who may be uncomfortable disclosing personal information.
3. “Withdraw message” time extension feature
Previously, WhatsApp had released a feature that allowed users to withdraw messages that had been sent.
The message pull time duration is initially valid for messages sent less than one hour.
However, with this latest feature, the message pull duration will be extended to seven days.
Users who want to withdraw messages after an hour of sending messages, can use this feature
The benefit of this feature is that it gives the sender more time to think before retracting the message.
4. Message reaction feature
Message reactions are responses that users give to other users.
An example of a message reaction can be found in the Instagram application, which allows users to react to emoticons on someone’s story.
The WhatsApp app will release this feature in 2022.
So that users can increase their creativity to react to emoticons on someone’s messages.
In addition, users may also be able to check who has reacted to a WhatsApp story through the tab feature.
5. Photo editing features
The photo editing feature makes it easy for users to edit photos via WhatsApp.
WhatsApp can be used to crop, filter, or change the position of photos through this feature.
Users don’t have to bother with editing photos using a separate application, and can do it directly via WhatsApp web.
