WhatsApp update: Social media messaging platform WhatsApp has surprised its subscribers through its new features added on Android or iOS platforms.
WhatsApp has announced a major update to its privacy settings ahead of elections in India that will let users decide who can add them to the chat groups. Previously, WhatsApp users could be added to any group without their consent. Globally, social media acts as a big influencer, especially during the election season, and a lot of fake news is spread using the WhatsApp chat groups.
WhatsApp Dark mode
The most-anticipated Dark mode feature, which will help subscribers save battery life and also offer a slightly better experience to look at in dark rooms, is undergoing tests, and it will soon be added to its Android app. According to WABetaInfo, WhatsApp is likely to use a dark grey as the background colour, the icons and headings in green, while sub-texts in white colour. The feature was stated to be spotted in the 2.19.82 WhatsApp version for Android beta.
WhatsApp Consecutive voice messages
WhatsApp is also set to add a consecutive voice messages feature to its Android app, facilitating users to play consecutive voice messages automatically, rather than playing a voice message manually. Spotted in Android 2.19.86 WhatsApp Beta version, this feature is reportedly under development and is expected to make its debut soon.WhatsApp Authentication
