To highlight the environmental challenges that we are facing, WhatsApp introduced new sticker pack on its platform. Word is that the company is working on two new features for its Android-based app that is aimed at making chats easier.
One of the two features, that is still in the works is called ‘New Chat Shortcuts UI’. In a report by WABetaInfo, it is mentioned that WhatsApp is working to redesign the chat shortcuts in the “Business Info” section of its WhatsApp Business for Android app. For now, the Business Info section shows the phone of the business that is stacked towards the left followed by the options to drop a message and make audio and video calls stacked towards the right.
Business users will get four options — Message, Voice Call, Catalog, and Forward, placed in the middle of the screen, when the company rolls out the updated UI. According to the blog site, this feature is still under development and there is no word on when this feature will be available in the app.
The second is the animated header features. As reported by the blog site, WhatsApp has started rolling out a redesigned header for disappearing messages to select beta testers. To give a better idea as to how its disappearing messages feature would work, the Facebook-owned messaging app has introduced an animation for the image added in the header. This feature is expected to be available with other beta users soon.
