Here are the top 5 features that have been recently launched by WhatsApp:
- Screen sharing on video calls This feature allows users to share their phone screen with others during a video call. It is useful for sharing presentations, demos, or other content.
- Voice chats in groups This feature allows users to join or leave a voice chat in a group whenever they want, without disrupting other members. It is useful for having casual conversations or discussions with group members.
- Password reminder for encrypted messages This feature prompts users to enter the password they chose to encrypt their backups on Google Drive and iCloud. It helps to ensure that users can still access their encrypted messages if they forget their password.
- Chat lock This feature allows users to lock specific chats with a fingerprint or passcode. It is useful for keeping sensitive conversations private.
- Companion mode This feature allows users to use their WhatsApp account on a secondary device, such as a tablet or laptop, without needing to keep their phone connected to the Internet. It is useful for people who want to use WhatsApp on multiple devices.
In addition to these features, WhatsApp is also testing a number of other new features, such as the ability to edit sent messages and to create polls in groups.
