New WhatsApp is in the works: All you should know!
20 Nov 2017
  • Launched over eight years ago, popular messaging app WhatsApp is yet to launch an official version for iPad users.
  • However, this could soon change as a brand-new version of WhatsApp specially built for iPad is about to be launched.
  • Also, WhatsApp is testing new features for recording voice messages, switching between voice and video calls, and improved control for group admins.
  • Here's more!

  • Locked mode for recording audio messages
    Support
  • Meanwhile, WABetaInfo also revealed WhatsApp is working on a feature to record voice messages without having to hold down on the screen for the entire duration while recording.
  • Currently, users have to press the record-button continuously during recording and release it to send.
  • In the new feature, users will have an option to "lock" the record-button for recording and "unlocking" it to send.

  • A new voice-video call swap feature
    FACT
    The Facebook-owned messaging app is also testing another feature to switch between ongoing voice and video calls seamlessly. Under this new feature, users get a "toggle switch" to change the current WhatsApp voice call into a video call and vice versa.

    Improving group admins' control over their groups
    Details
  • WhatsApp is working on a feature to allow group admins to "disable chat", meaning group participants wouldn't be able to send texts/media.
  • This will help admins have participants' attention whenever they need to share something important.
  • Participants can use "Message Admin" option if they want to share something in this "restricted chat mode".
  • The feature would have a 72-hour limit before getting automatically disabled.
