What new and interesting feature is WhatsApp working on?
Meta owns WhatsApp, which is one of the messaging apps that keeps adding new features and updates to make the user experience better. This time, the developers are rolling out a new feature called “kept messages,” WaBetaInfo reported on Tuesday.
This new feature is being added to WhatsApp’s Google Play Beta Program, bringing the version number to 188.8.131.52. Some users may be able to use this feature, though, if they install updates 184.108.40.206 or 220.127.116.11.
Some beta testers are now getting access to this feature. In a future update, the messaging app plans to let more people use it.
With this feature, users can keep messages from going away, so they stay in the chat for everyone to see.
This feature has been in the works for a long time. It is now being added to the latest version of WhatsApp beta for Android, version 18.104.22.168, which you can get from the Play Store.
This is for the WhatsApp for business version.
Once it’s available, users can find this “kept messages” option in the chat information. With this feature, users will be able to keep a message from going away.
Some users have the option for messages to disappear after a certain amount of time. With the “keep messages” option, the message won’t disappear from the chat. But users can still delete the messages whenever they want.
This is where all the saved messages will go, so that everyone in the chat can find them quickly whenever they want.
Users can’t save a message that disappears right now, but they will be able to in the future.
“Also, when it will be possible to keep messages from disappearing, you won’t be able to star messages and there won’t be a section for starred messages in chat info for disappearing chats because it doesn’t make sense to star messages that are going to disappear,” the app tracking website said.
