Three WhatsApp upcoming features are purportedly being rolled out by WhatsApp to beta users. On iOS, the first feature enables users to lock particular chats. Additionally, WhatsApp for Android is testing the capability to directly share your Status with your Facebook friends. Recent beta versions of the iOS app allow beta testers to test a feature that transcribes voice notes sent via WhatsApp. According to a report, the only functionality that requires iOS 16 to operate is voice transcription.
WhatsApp Upcoming Features: More Details
WABeta introduces a chat lock feature for added privacy. Users can access locked chats after authenticating with Face ID or Touch ID. The app also hides sender names and message previews and prevents automatic media saving after chat locking. These updates mark a significant step towards strengthening user safety on WhatsApp.
According to WABetaInfo, the latest WhatsApp beta for Android now allows users to share their Statuses with Facebook friends directly from the app, offering greater convenience. Additionally, users have the option to choose whether or not to share their status, giving them more control over their privacy.
In addition, WhatsApp recently started releasing the iOS beta version 188.8.131.52 of WhatsApp with a voice transcription capability. WhatsApp’s new feature allows listening to voice notes without earbuds or phone speakers, according to the feature tracker. This can be useful in circumstances where reading a voice note may be more convenient than listening to it.
Furthermore, WhatsApp locally manages speech transcription on iOS, ensuring end-to-end encryption for voice notes. It uses language packs to support multiple languages and indexed, searchable text. Another step forward in security and convenience for WhatsApp users!
