WhatsApp has a new Twitter account

Patrick Devaney


WhatsApp has been busy of late, developing lots of new features for both the iOS and Android versions of the app. These include updates to WhatsApp’s disappearing messages feature and new powers for admins of WhatsApp groups. As well as developing updates to the regular app, WhatsApp has also been working hard on updating WhatsApp Business features too and seemingly wants everybody to know about it. At least, it looks this way considering the new Twitter account WhatsApp has just set up.

WhatsApp has started a brand new Twitter account for its WhatsApp Business service. At the time of writing, the account is only a few hours old and is only following three other accounts, which are the Meta for Developers account, the Meta for Business account, and the main WhatsApp account.

So far there isn’t too much to report from WhatsApp’s newest Twitter account as it has only made two Tweets so far. If you are a WhatsApp Business user though, it could be worth following the account so you can stay up to date with all the latest updates that may affect the service.

We also have some small news relating to an update that may come to WhatsApp groups. The latest WhatsApp beta version for Android includes a feature that would allow users to view all past participants in a group. Currently under development, the upcoming feature would be an option that sits at the bottom of the group participants list.

This new feature will make it easier to see who used to be in the groups you are in but has since left. WABetaInfo reports that for the moment at least, it looks like this feature will be available for everybody in the group rather than just group admins. This could be due to change, however, as the feature passes through further stages of development.
