Whatsapp Disappearing Messages Features

This one feature by WhatsApp is due from a long time. The feature will destruct the sent messages after a point of time. The time of destruction can be selected by the users. For example, a user can set a timer of 5 seconds, 30 seconds, a minute, 5 minutes, etc. The self-destruct feature will be released for photographs too and it will be available for both Android and iOS in the upcoming updates.

WhatsApp Audio Message Feature

As per the reports, a new WhatsApp feature will be allowing the users to alter the speed of audio files by 1.5x or 2.0x. As of now, the audio files can be played at a speed of 1x on the instant messaging platform.

WhatsApp Logout Feature

This can be said to be one of the most important features to date by WhatsApp. As of now, the application only has an option to delete account and there is no option for logging out from a device. The feature has already been witnessed in a beta update of the app. The same feature will also allow the users to log in from multiple devices.

Instagram Reels On WhatsApp

Speculations are that WhatsApp will soon get an Instagram Reels Section too. Reels was introduced last year on Instagram and is a short video platform to promote creators. The Instagram Reels section on WhatsApp will allow the users to watch the short videos in the app. This feature is going to be the next big step by Facebook to integrate all its social media apps.

Read Later Feature

WhatsApp is working on a new feature named Read Later, which will be a modified version of WhatsApp's Archived Chats feature. The feature will let the users mark different contacts under the Read Later option. All the chats marked under this feature will be moved to the Read Later tab. The most amazing part is that WhatsApp will not send any notifications for the messages marked under Read Later. The Read Later mode will also have a vacation mode that will make sure the feature works almost similar to archived chats.

Join Missed Group Call Feature

WhatsApp will soon allow the users to join the group video or voice calls that they have missed. For example, if you have missed joining a video call or a voice call, then you can join in-between. This will reduce the wastage of time that is required to connect the call again and again. Under the join missed call feature, users will get two different options including miss and ignore.
