Wabetainfo, which monitors all WhatsApp-related information and notifies readers about new features, got in touch by WhatsApp CEO Will Cathcart and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to discuss some of WhatsApp’s upcoming features in an unexpected turn of events.

The Wabetainfo report said, “Some days ago WhatsApp reached out to me to ask if we could move on WhatsApp to discuss new features to come on the application. We used WhatsApp to chat in a group with the WhatsApp CEO Will Cathcart! We started to chat, but I felt so weird because this was an amazing experience. The chat starts with a message from Will, where he thanks me for my work reporting news and WhatsApp features”.

WhatsApp was the first worldwide messaging platform which has end-to-end encryption, according to Mark Zuckerberg in an interview with Wabetainfo. But the company is now intending to push out more disappearing text features globally. It’s worth noting that WhatsApp already has the feature of the disappearing message, but Mark mentions a new disappearing mode that enables disappearing messages in all conversation threads, making the WhatsApp experience temporal.

The View Once feature is just another WhatsApp feature that will be available soon. This feature is somewhat similar to the concept of disappearing messages. If you enable the mode, the message will vanish once the recipient has seen it.

When asked about multi-device support, Mark responded, “it’s been a big technical challenge to get all your messages and content to sync properly across devices even when your phone battery dies but we’ve solved this and we are looking forward to getting it out soon.”
