WhatsApp announced a new version through the Google Play Beta program, upgrading version 184.108.40.206 to 220.127.116.11. In the previous version of WhatsApp 18.104.22.168, the company updated the chat tooltips, and now WhatsApp also plans to develop other features. In the current version of WhatsApp, users can save their status updates so that they can be easily found again when they download the app again.
Surprisingly, WhatsApp will not do the same thing as reported by WABI in the updated version. Do not backup status updates to ensure that space is reserved when backing up chats. Although the storage space is unlimited when backing up chat history on Google Drive, WhatsApp does provide this modification. Business chat records can also be stored in the phone memory, which will take up available space and make it impossible to download important files.
This change is very necessary because people often download entire movies as an update of their history, which may unnecessarily overload the backup. Disabling this status update feature can save users some smartphone space. Keeping status updated is completely useless, because they will definitely disappear after 24 hours. Apple has also turned off the save state option to preserve iCloud storage space when WhatsApp is unavailable. This Android feature will also appear in the next version.
WhatsApp also revealed many long-awaited improvements, such as compatibility with multiple devices, missing features, and a separate application for iPad users. The multi-device function allows users to control up to four devices without access to the Internet or even a host device. To log in from other devices, users can only access the WhatsApp network, and an internet connection is required to stay connected to the main source.
WhatsApp will also introduce a final disappear option. If this function is activated, all sent messages will be deleted after a period of time. In a personal chat, the user must have activated the fade-in and fade-out mode. WhatsApp can also use functions similar to Snapchat’s “view once” function. As the name implies, the news or media can only be seen once. It is expected that an update will be released when a new version is released in the next few months.
