The most popular instant messaging app all across the globe, WhatsApp, comprises of the most number of users worldwide. This Facebook-owned company is always famous since its launch as they keep on updating its features and brings out the new ones as well.
The company continually keeps on working on launching new features along with that some of them were later spotted on a beta update. WhatsApp never fails to engage their users with this app and keeps on changing their current features or upgrading it so that the users never get bored. They take care of users’ needs and preferences with the changing time, and therefore, the app is still popular even after having so many alternative platforms in the market.
Now, a new report from WABetaInfo states that we can expect at least three unique features that are all set to be coming soon to WhatsApp.
Well, as we all know that WhatsApp is not only used for exchanging messages but also for sharing photos, GIFs, videos, documents, and so on. This makes us so difficult to go back and search for previously shared media and due to this reason this new feature makes sense. However, this feature of WhatsApp is still under work but it is expected to offer you an advanced search option because of which you can get the exceptional search option experience that you had never before.
WhatsApp beta v2.20.117 was lately released with several fixes for random crashes because of a missing library named “libcurve25519.so.” Other than this, from the fix, the update has also revealed the new Advanced Search feature. This new search feature is going to expand the present chat search option which is at present limited to only text messages.
Backup Password Protection
Coming to the second feature, this feature was also spotted previously on WhatsApp beta v2.20.66 where the users can easily set a password of their chat backups on Google Drive. The feature will be mainly used to get the accessibility in the Chat backup settings which would encrypt your chat backups with a password deprived of putting any much effort. This is going to offer peace of mind as neither WhatsApp nor Google is going to be able to view any of your chat contents.
Auto Download Rules
Last but not the least, this feature will solve the biggest concern with WhatsApp regarding the plethora of forwarded messages. This issue not only mess up the app but at the same time, they also bring a host of annoying multimedia with them. Therefore, WhatsApp is being tried to stop the excessive forwarding of messages by lately stating restrictions on forwarded messages in India to only just one chat at a single time. It is also likely to shortly disable auto-download of frequently forwarded messages that consist of images, videos, documents, as well as voice messages.
