Over recent months we have been tracking a whole host of new features that are in the pipeline at WhatsApp. Everything from augmentations to WhatsApp groups to a raft of new privacy control features are on the way. Today we get to bring you news of two new WhatsApp features that have been spotted. Let’s check out.
The active WhatsApp beta community has discovered a brand new and never seen before feature on the WhatsApp beta for Android version 18.104.22.168, as well as a new feature on the WhatsApp beta for Desktop version 2.2241.2.
On Android, a new logged-out screen has been spotted, which may be linked to another new feature that is in development, the ability to log into your WhatsApp account on multiple devices. Up until now, there has never really been a reason to log out of WhatsApp on your device, but this could all be about to change, and WhatsApp looks like it is preparing for the evolution.
For example, if you will soon be able to log into a second device without having to scan a QR code with your primary device, you may start logging in on other people’s devices to check your messages when you don’t have your phone with you. In that scenario, it would be very important to know that you have logged out properly once you have done so.
On WhatsApp for Desktop, a new feature that allows users to blur out certain parts of images before sending them looks set to add another privacy update to the app. This feature would make it easier to send photos to friends and family even if they aspects in them that you don’t want to share, such as maybe a child’s face, your address, or maybe the license plate on your car.
These two features have rolled out to beta users on both platforms but there is still no official word from WhatsApp about them. This means we will have to wait and see when they will roll out to all users. Make sure you stick with us for all the latest WhatsApp news so that you don’t miss any updates.
