WhatsApp has released a slew of new features and updates to its Android and iOS smartphone apps. They include joinable calls, View Once, multi-device support and much more, which will ensure your WhatsApp chats get even more enthralling. Here are the top five new features that you should be using right now on WhatsApp.
View Once: This feature was first introduced by SnapChat and was later followed by most social media giants. The feature allows users to view photos and videos once before they get disappeared. If you send a photo or video, they will be deleted straight after being opened and viewed. WhatsApp says that this feature is useful for sending temporary information, like passwords.
Android to iOS and vice-versa: Previously, there was no way to move your chat history from one system to another. Now, you can use the Smart Switch feature to backup your chat history and files and transfer them to any new phone.
Joinable Calls: This new WhatsApp feature allows users to jump into a voice or video call after the calls have begun. Just like other services like Google Meet and Zoom, people who miss the start of a group video conversation can join at any time during the call.
Multi-device Support: You can use the service on multiple PC and laptop computers without having to mirror from your smartphone. You can now use the WhatsApp Web without your phone being connected to the internet.
