WhatsApp announced many new features on Wednesday, including adding contact via QR codes, animated stickers and dark mode for its web and desktop platforms. “While our focus remains on providing a simple, reliable and personalized way for people to chat with friends and family, we continue to develop our product design to ensure that WhatsApp remains the most useful way for everyone to connect anywhere to make, “the company said in a blog post.
The company has added new animated sticker packs that are even more fun and expressive. When you meet someone new soon, you can scan their QR code to add it to your contacts. Never tap their numbers one by one again. Now with up to 8 people in a video call, the new feature makes it easier to focus on whoever you want by holding down to maximize a participant’s video in full screen. WhatsApp has also added a video icon in group chats of 8 or less, so you can easily start a group video call with 1 tap.
KaiOS users can now enjoy the popular feature that allows you to share updates that disappear after 24 hours. Facebook’s messaging service said new features will roll out in the coming weeks. (ANI)
