7 Big WhatsApp Updates for 2021
Here we go. These are the 7 Big WhatsApp updates that are going to touch in the year 2018.
The next WhatsApp news
According to WaBetaInfo, known as news filtering of the instant messaging app, WhatsApp will incorporate the following important updates in 2018.
WhatsApp wants to integrate the possibility of writing into the app while watching a YouTube video and for that, it works in the picture in picture function.
Thus, a floating window would appear (that you can move around the screen of your device) while you keep the WhatsApp conversation open.
The arrival of several administrators to the groups, although applauded, can lead to lack of control. Imagine that you create a group, you appoint all administrators and they end up expelling you. Just this is what they want to avoid those responsible for the app and work so that the initial creator of a group cannot be removed from it by the other administrators.
Administrators can also deactivate the comments of the members of a group during a certain period of time or create groups in which they can only write them.
As of 2018, it will be easier than ever to report an incident on WhatsApp. Just enter any conversation and shake your device. This gesture – and thanks to the mobile accelerometer – will automatically open a pop-up window with the ‘Contact us‘ section to send the incident directly.
GROUP VIDEO CALLS
After the arrival of video calls, it’s time to do them in a group. They can be done with up to 3 people at a time.
STICKER WITH LOCATION
Along with the new stickers – already active – with the time in real time, a new one will arrive with two designs to establish the location, which you can include in your videos or photos.
OPTIMIZATION OF THE IMAGES
WhatsApp becomes more and more intelligent and will have different levels of image compression depending on the type of photo you send.
QUICK RELEASE OF CONTACTS
Do you regret having blocked some contact? Although now it is not difficult to unlock it, from 2018 it will be even less. A new button will appear in the information of the contact in question and you just have to press it to unlock immediately and open a new conversation.
New emojis and free space: the latest changes adopted
These changes are recently implemented. Among them, highlights the arrival of 56 new emojis, among which the face with a monocle, insulting or a siren.
In addition, WhatsApp has released a tool to free space for more flexibility. You can delete messages, photos, videos or audios by chats, choosing the conversation in which you want to keep the items sent to you and delete the files of another one which is not interesting to you. To see the conversations that take up the most space, go to Settings or Settings> Data and storage> Storage usage. There you will see all your conversations ordered from highest to lowest.
The visual section is still essential for the company of Mark Zuckerberg, hence they have included two new stickers to add the time (with an analog or digital clock) to photos or videos. You can also copy comments of photos or videos thanks to a new option included in the menu called ‘Copy comment’ and that will allow you to copy that comment in any other conversation or app.
The latest great news of WhatsApp is the ability to see how to get to a friend’s location in real time. Some time ago, the application adopted the function of sharing your location in real time, which is now expanded since you can also obtain routes to reach a friend’s location thanks to the appearance of the ‘How to arrive’ button.
