Meta owned WhatsApp keeps adding new features to improve its users’ experience. The world’s most popular messaging app has introduced several new features lately.
Here, in this article, we will be taking a look at the 5 upcoming features of WhatsApp in 2022.
1. Grocery Shopping
The feature has already been introduced in India. It will soon be available in other countries, including Pakistan, as well.
With this feature, you will be able to order essential groceries through WhatsApp. Payments can also be made via the app.
2. Send Messages to Yourself
There are a number of applications such as Telegram and Slack, which let you send messages to yourself. The feature is useful for saving important links, texts etc for a quick access.
WhatsApp will soon have this feature and the users will be able to send messages to themselves, using their linked devices as well as their main smartphones. It is already available in the Beta version and we can expect it soon in the main app.
3. More Privacy For View Once Messages
Although, view once was introduced to provide more privacy to the users but it didn’t fulfil its purpose. The view once media can easily be saved, screenshoted or shared.
This problem will be solved in the future as WhatsApp is working on adding more privacy. The receiver won’t be able to ”share, save, copy, save or take a screenshot of it” in the future.
4. Call Timer
The call timer could be another useful feature if WhatsApp decides to add it to its system. Although, its just a concept created by WABetaInfo but such features could make its way to the app.
5. Search Messages
At the moment, searching for a specific message is only possible if you remember certain words from it. This will be improved in the future and the users will be able to search messages via date or communities.
