WHATSAPP has a lot of big changes in the pipeline – and some have even been released recently.
They range from new options for groups to improved ways to filter unread chats.
To find out exactly what’s new, read below:
Add up to 512 people to a group
WhatsApp hasn’t rolled this out to everyone for long, which means groups are going to be colossal now.
You can now accommodate up to 512 people in a group – it could get pretty loud very quickly.
Chat filter improvements
WhatsApp is currently working on a way to make it easier to filter unread messages.
According to leaked screenshots seen by WABetaInfothis means you can search messages and set them to show only unread texts you have received.
Do not disturb mode
For anyone with an iPhone, you may be aware that you can set Do Not Disturb mode for your device.
Well, pretty soon it looks like WhatsApp will be able to recognize that too.
This will show up on any missed calls you’ve received, so you’ll know exactly why you missed it.
Status updates in the chat list
You may have forgotten that WhatsApp has a status update feature hidden.
It looks like the messaging service wants to give it a little more prominence by moving the status straight to the main chat list.
The platform is also developing a way to export your backed up chats and data from Google Drive.
Such a change should make it easier to switch smartphones.
