New WhatsApp changes

Here are the six major changes in WhatsApp development:

  • A new section to view previous group participants
  • An in-chat notification when someone leaves a group that only group admins can see
  • WhatsApp status emoji reactions with a choice of eight quick tap icons
  • An optimized context menu on WhatsApp for Windows with an integrated spelling action
  • A new security feature called Login Permission, which adds an optional extra layer of security
  • Toggle phone number sharing for members of a WhatsApp community

The bad news is that we don’t know exactly when these updates will roll out.

Some can last days, weeks, or even months.

And it’s possible that WhatsApp will decide that one of the features isn’t working well and scrap it entirely.
