  1. WhatsApp has launched a new feature to make it possible to search for businesses within its app for the first time. The company is giving users more ways to connect with businesses by testing a new in-app directory. The feature will allow users to browse local businesses nearby through several categories such as automotive, apparel, food, and more. The tool is currently only available in São Paulo, Brazil, but a screenshot shared by Will Cathcart, the head of WhatsApp, shows that you can use the feature to sort businesses by category and how close they are to you. However, the directory could expand to other cities depending on feedback from early users over the next few months. The company plans to target India and Indonesia as its next locations, though there’s no timetable for when it might launch in either region. While this doesn’t mean ads for businesses are coming to the app any time soon, it does seem like WhatsApp is planning on including advertisements sometime in the future. The company, which has faced user backlash amid confusion over privacy updates and was fined by the Irish data protection regulator over privacy breaches, said it will not know or store the location of people’s search or results through the new directory feature. WhatsApp, unlike Facebook and Instagram, does not run ads in its app but Mr Idema did not rule out the possibility that it could introduce the feature.

  2. WhatsApp has added the ability for users to migrate their chat history when switching from iOS to Samsung Android devices, the company said in a blog post. Last month on the day of Samsung’s official unveiling of the Galaxy Z Fold3 and Z Flip3 WhatsApp unveiled plans to support moving chat history from iOS to Samsung devices running Android 10 or 11. Today, the feature is live. The entire process happens without your messages ever being sent to WhatsApp, and includes voice messages, photos, and videos. When you set up WhatsApp on a new Samsung device running Android 10 or 11 you’ll get the option to securely transfer your chats over from an iPhone. You’ll need a USB-C to Lightning cable for this. How to migrate WhatsApp chats from an iPhone to a new Samsung device Turn on your Samsung and connect by cable to your iPhone when prompted Follow the Samsung Smart Switch instructions When prompted, scan the QR code displayed on the new Samsung device using the iPhone’s camera Tap Start on your iPhone, and wait for the process to complete Continue setting up your new Samsung device When you reach the home screen, open WhatsApp and log in using the same phone number used on your old device Tap Import when prompted, and allow the process to complete Finish activating your new device. Your WhatsApp chats should now be available. Your old iPhone will still have your data on it unless you delete WhatsApp or wipe the device completely after the migration process. WhatsApp says this feature will become available for more Android devices “soon”. The post How to Migrate Your WhatsApp Chat From iPhone to Samsung Phone appeared first on 9jaonline Creation.
  3. Have you ever been in a situation where you have to hide some of your chats because of public eyes, or that special friend that always scrolls through your messages whenever they are with your phone? Well, worry no more as you can now easily hide your chats without stress. Until now, WhatsApp would allow you to hide certain conversations but they would reappear whenever a new message arrives, pushing them right back to the top of the list of messages which defeated the purpose of hiding them in the first place. However, WhatsApp has revealed that it has moved to hide chats in a separate folder without archived feeds reappearing in the main section upon receiving a new message. How to Hide Chats on WhatsApp 1. Open the WhatsApp application 2.Tap on the ‘More options’ section on the ‘Chats’ tab 3. Select ‘Chats’, then ‘Chats history’, and then ‘Archive all chats’ To send one single chat conversation into the archive section, you must tap and hold on to the chat that you want to hide. Let us know what you think in the comment.
  4. WhatsApp messenger has been releasing steady feature updates back-to-back, and again, and its set to update the chat messenger with more features to enhance its usability. Chat Migration WhatsApp is finally rolling out a new feature to migrate your chat history from iOS to Android! How to check if it’s already available for your WhatsApp account? Just open WhatsApp Settings from iOS -> Chats and if you see “Move chats to Android”, it means it’s already enabled for your account! Large Link Preview WhatsApp is also rolling out large link preview to beta users. When you get this feature, any link shared with you will first of all show the preview of what it contains. Share a link to see if the feature is already available for you. 90 Days Last November, WhatsApp introduced messages that disappear after 7 days. A couple of months ago it also started work on “view once” messages, that are gone forever after you viewed them once, as the name handily implies. Now it turns out that WhatsApp is also going to add another option for message expiry, and that’s 90 days. Yes, disappearing messages can expire after 90 days, in a future update. So whenever all of these features make it out of beta, you’ll be presented with a menu similar to the one you can see in the screenshot below, where you’ll be able to pick between “Off” (so messages never disappear), or choose to have your chats disappear after 24 hours, 7 days, or 90 days.

  5. Popular chat messenger WhatsApp, with over a billion install has been dropping steady feature updates, part of which includes, speed playback for voice messages, multi-device, the new archive and many more. According to report, another feature is in works which you have already seen on other chat messengers like Instagram and twitter (twitter fleets) called status updates. WhatsApp is working on a feature called Status Updates which allows the possibility to view status updates by tapping the profile picture. When you tap the profile picture, WhatsApp will present an alert asking if you want to view the status update or the profile picture, so something very similar to Twitter Fleets. The feature is still in works and when completed, it will first be rolled out to WhatsApp beta testers before rolling it out to the public.
  6. WhatsApp is adding a feature that will allow you to transfer voice notes, photos, and conversations from iOS to Android devices. The feature was announced earlier in April, and now, it is gradually going live. WhatsApp’s iOS to Android chat migration tool is now going live. However, not every WhatsApp user will be able to take advantage of it. Samsung demonstrated how users coming from iOS to Android will be able to transfer their WhatsApp chats and media to the new foldable phones using a USB cable at the launch of the Galaxy Z fold 3 and Z flip 3. But WhatsApp has confirmed to theVerge that it is indeed adding the ability for iOS users to move all voice notes, photos, and conversations to Android phones, starting with the Samsung foldables. The feature will also become available on other Samsung phones running Android 10 “in the coming weeks.” The new feature should help address one of WhatsApp’s most frustrating elements, which is that it’s never been officially possible to transfer your chat history between mobile operating systems. If you choose to use WhatsApp’s cloud backup feature, then iOS chat histories are stored in iCloud, while Android’s are in Google Drive, meaning it’s only possible to transfer your chats between phones running the same operating system. The new tool surpasses this limitation and allows transfers between the two operating systems using a Lightning to USB-C cable. The feature will eventually arrive on all Android phones but no specific timing when it will arrive.

  7. View Once feature was launched few weeks ago to beta users, and now the feature is now rolling out to all WhatsApp users. Photos and videos sent using the view once mode can only be viewed once, and they disappear from the chat after you dismiss the photo or the video. You’ll also be able to verify if the recipient as seen the media or not. The media will disappear from the chat once you have viewed it. This will allow users to save up on space. When sending a photo or video, you can make it view once by tapping the “1” button to the left of the send button. After the recipient opens it, it’ll be deleted. Here is everything you should know about the view Once Feature Everything You Should Know About The Feature If you disable read receipts, the recipient will still see if you have opened the photo or video set to view once, but you cannot see when the recipient opens yours. In groups you can see when other participants open expiring photos even if you have disabled read receipts. The recipient might save the photo or video taking screenshots or video captures, and WhatsApp won’t notify you because there isn’t a screenshot detection: be careful! You can also share photos and videos set to view once in groups, and you can see who opened them in Message Info. Blocked contacts in common groups can still open those photos and videos: in fact, they cannot message or call you but they can still interact with you in groups. If you send a photo using view once to people that haven’t this feature enabled, the view once feature will still work and they can only view it once. Update your WhatsApp to the latest feature on Play stores and the feature will be available for you. The post View Once Feature Now Rolling Out to All WhatsApp Users appeared first on 9jaonline Creation.
  8. WhatsApp has released a new feature for its users that will allow them to send images and videos that will disappear after they’ve been opened. The feature is called ‘View Once.’ The company warns users to “only send photos or videos with the view once media enabled to trusted individuals” – as it is still possible to take a screenshot or screen recording of the media before it disappears. The ‘View Once’ feature is only available on the latest version of WhatsApp, which is enabled by tapping an icon in the text bar before sending the message. WhatsApp assures that the “View Once” media is protected by end-to-end encryption so that even the platform does not have access to it. Such media files will be marked as “one-time” and once viewed, it will show an “opened” tag. WhatsApp further states that such media files will not be stored in the Gallery of the receiver. Users will not be able to forward, save, star, or share photos or videos that were sent or received with the “view once” feature. “NSPCC research shows 10% of child sex crimes on Facebook-owned apps take place on WhatsApp but, because they can’t see the content, it accounts for less than 2% of the company’s child abuse reports to police,” said senior child safety online policy officer Alison Trew. “This View Once feature could put children at even greater risk by giving offenders another tool to avoid detection and erase evidence, when efforts to combat child sexual abuse are already hindered by end-to-end encryption. “Facebook must spell out how they’ve mitigated these risks, but this is seemingly another example of tech firms failing to consider the protection of children when balancing the rights of users to privacy and safety. “Regulation must put this right by embedding the principle of safety by design in companies to ensure they consider how changes to products and services will affect their response to the child abuse threat.”
  9. The long awaited WhatsApp multi-device feature is right at the corner, and stage A is already rolling out to some beta users. The feature has been in development for long, and now gradually rolling out. The company promised earlier in June that it will roll the feature out in two month time, and now, stage A multi-device feature is already rolling out for some specific beta testers on WhatsApp beta for Android and iOS today. If you want to discover if you’re one of the lucky users, just open WhatsApp Web/Desktop Settings from your iPhone or Android device (WhatsApp might rename it to Linked devices in the meantime, but this does not mean you have received the feature) and, if the feature is enabled for your WhatsApp account, you can see a new row called “Multi-device beta”. At the moment, you need to manually Join Multi-device beta”, but you can always opt out if you don’t want to continue with the multi-device beta. Once you join, you can connect to WhatsApp Web/Desktop for the first time, and then start using a beta version of the web/desktop client. With this new multi-device rollout, it would allow users to verify their accounts in the native WhatsApp messaging app on multiple devices. And also use WhatsApp Web without an Internet connection on your phone. Just turn off your phone and you can see you can use WhatsApp Web normally! What You Should Know About Multi-Device Beta Rollout When you join multi-device beta, all your previous sessions will be removed and you need to link your devices again. Probably WhatsApp will ask to connect your phone to WhatsApp Web or WhatsApp Desktop twice when you join the multi-device beta the first time. This is to ensure the transition to multi-device. Linked devices are automatically logged out from your WhatsApp account after 14 days of inactivity on your phone, due to security reasons. So you need to use your phone at least once every 14 days. Some features are not supported yet, because it’s a beta version, like the possibility to view live locations on linked devices, pinned chats don’t show up immediately but you need to manually search for them the first time and, if you use WhatsApp Business, your business name and labels cannot be edited from WhatsApp Web and WhatsApp Desktop. If the multi-device beta program is not visible for you, don’t worry, WhatsApp is testing the feature for specific people and, after some time, WhatsApp will start rolling it out for more beta testers. Note that when you enroll in the multi-device beta, you might experience some small issues like bugs. Things like that happen on beta but you can always give your feedback to WhatsApp regarding any bug experienced before rolling it out to stable users. Let us know in the comment if you have the feature already working for you. The post Just IN: WhatsApp Multi-Device Feature Beta Now Rolling Out appeared first on 9jaonline Creation.
  10. As expected, another update on WhatsApp will soon roll out as its currently under development, and this has to do with users being able to send images and videos with the best quality. In the latest version of WhatsApp beta v2.21.14.16 for Android, they are now testing three new quality settings when sending images. In the update, WhatsApp is testing new options in the Storage and data menu, under a new setting called Photo upload quality. There are three new options: Auto (recommended): WhatsApp detects what is the best compression algorithm for specific images. Best quality: WhatsApp will send the image using the best quality available Data saver: WhatsApp will use compression algorithms that will send images faster, but with much lesser quality. If and when both options are made accessible to actual users, you’ll be able to change how images and videos are sent under the “Media upload quality” section in “Storage and data.” Currently, that section doesn’t exist in any available version of WhatsApp. No information yet on when it will roll out.

  11. Another stern warning is coming from WhatsApp messaging app with over a billion installs, for those using the unofficial version of its app called GB WhatsApp or any other third-party WhatsApp. The Facebook-owned company issued the warning on its website after an unsupported Android app claiming to unlock some new WhatsApp messaging features went viral at the end of last month. The app goes by the name of ‘GB WhatsApp’ and boasts of giving users the ability to send more pictures at once and reply with auto-responses such as ‘In a meeting’. It also claims to allow you to hide read receipts while still being able to see others’ read status, along with other benefits. The lookalike app links to your WhatsApp account, unlocking these features not yet available in the official version of WhatsApp. One of the major reasons that make GB WhatsApp gain a lot of traction among users is because of its endless features not available on the original WhatsApp. However, WhatsApp has warned that you’ll initially be suspended from WhatsApp and, if you fail to switch to your official WhatsApp account, you could be banned altogether, losing access to the most popular on the planet. GB WhatsApp is sweet, but using it is risky. Let us know in the comment if you are still using any of the third unofficial WhatsApp on your device.

  12. A new update is available for WhatsApp users on Desktop which has been long overdue, WhatsApp Voice and Video calling. The good news is that you will now be able to place calls from your WhatsApp Windows or Mac app to your contacts on the platform. The company took to their blog to announce the new update which is now available for use. Voice and video calls on WhatsApp are end-to-end encrypted, so WhatsApp can’t hear or see them, whether you call from your phone or your computer. For now, you can only place a call one-on-one or person-to-person call on the WhatsApp desktop app, and not currently available for Groups. It will support group calling in the future. Note: This new calling feature will only work on the WhatsApp desktop app and not on WhatsApp Web. It supports 10 64-bit version 1903 or later and macOS 10.13 or newer. How Can I Use The Feature? Just as you do on a mobile phone, you’ll need a mic and camera on your computer to make or receive calls on WhatsApp Desktop. The calls will go through the internet connection on your PC and not through your phone. However, WhatsApp says your phone will also need to be connected to the internet. You can read more about it here, including how to download the app on your Windows and Mac computers.
  13. WhatsApp with over 5 billion users is currently working on some updates which will later be rolled out when completed. According to tipster Webatainfo, WhatsApp is working on self-destructing Photos. You can also call it disappearing Photos. Just like the disappearing message that allows you messages to disappear within a particular time frame, self-destructing Photos will disappear once you leave the chat according to the pictures seen. Self-destructing photos | IMG Credit: WABETAINFO Here is what we know so far, • Self-destructing photos cannot be exported from WhatsApp. • WhatsApp didn’t implement screenshot detection for self-destructing photos yet. Meaning you may not be able to screengrab it except if allowed. For now, the self-destructing photo is being worked upon on a future update and it will be available for iOS and Android users. A few days ago, the company rolled out a mute audio feature that allows you to mute audio on videos before adding them to your Status or sending them in chat. Just update your app and the feature will be live.
  14. In a new update on Thursday, WhatsApp has said no going back on its controversial privacy policy update which was postponed from February till May. The company said it will allow users to read it at “their own pace” and will also display a banner providing additional information. WhatsApp said it previously encountered a great deal of misinformation about this update and it continues to work hard to clear up any confusion. The company will continue to proceeds with privacy policy changes, but it will now communicate the consequences of these changes more effectively. The messaging platform laid out fresh terms in January, aimed at increasing business transactions on the platform. The policy update would allow owner Facebook and its subsidiaries collect user data, including their phone number and location, which sparked a global outcry and a rush of new users to competitors Telegram and Signal, among others. WhatsApp then moved to delay the new policy launch to May 15 from February and sought to clarify the update was focused on allowing users to message with businesses and would not affect personal conversations, which will continue to have end-to-end encryption. However, in a new update currently being work on for Android v2.21.4.13, we can see the additional banner information been displayed. Image Credit: Wabetainfo WhatsApp cannot read or listen to your personal conversations, because they are end-to-end encrypted. This will never change. Solution providers allow businesses to provide a better service. Chatting with businesses is optional. Processed data in order to keep your account safe. Any information is not used for profiling the user and it’s not used to create targeted advertisements on Facebook.
  15. Popular instant messenger with over 5B users, WhatsApp has released a new update which is currently being rolled out to its users dubbed has “mute video option”. More features are still being work upon which will be rolling out later in the future. These updates are coming after battling long weeks of a Privacy Policy issue in which prompted some users to switch to other messaging platforms. Mute Video The new WhatsApp “mute video” update is available in version beta, gives users the possibility to mute videos before sending them to contact! The toggle is available in the section where you usually edit the video. The feature is currently rolling out to beta testers before the normal users. If you are a beta tester, kindly update your WhatsApp messenger for the new update to be effective. Mention Badge The new feature is pretty simple: when a WhatsApp user receives a mention in a group chat, a new badge would be added in the group cell. However, the feature is under development, and it will be available in a future update. New Sticker Pack Moreover, WhatsApp has also released a new animated sticker pack called “Taters n tots”. It is available for previous versions as well. However, a few weeks ago, WhatsApp announced that it has launched its official account, available on your STATUS within the WhatsApp messaging platform, which functions similarly to Instagram’s stories and comprises time-limited updates shared with contacts.
  16. It is no longer news that a lot of people find joy using third-party WhatsApp messenger, otherwise known as modded WhatsApp because of the excellent features it carries. Of a truth, Modded WhatsApp comes with a lot of features not present on the original WhatsApp which has made it difficult for users of it to switch. But WhatsApp has updated their FAQ that it will delete the accounts of those who are using WhatsApp Plus and GB WhatsApp because they are violating their policy. According to WhatsApp, How to Switch to Official Version of WhatsApp Make sure you back up your chat history before moving to the official WhatsApp app. The name of the unsupported app you’re using determines whether you need to transfer your chat history. Locate the name of the app by tapping More Options > Settings > Help > App info. Follow the steps below based on the name of the app: WhatsApp Plus or GB WhatsApp. For GB WhatsApp Users Wait for your temporary ban to end. The timer will show you the length of the ban. In GB WhatsApp messenger, tap More options > Chats > Back up chats. Go to Phone Settings > tap Storage > Files. Find the folder GB WhatsApp and tap and hold to select it. In the upper right corner tap More > Rename and rename the folder to “WhatsApp”. Navigate to the Play Store and download the official WhatsApp app. In WhatsApp, verify your phone number On the Backup found screen, tap Restore > Next. WhatsApp should load with your existing chats. For WhatsApp Plus Users According to the company, if your chat history was previously saved, it should automatically transfer to the official WhatsApp app when downloaded.
  17. Just few days ago, WhatsApp announced changes to its privacy policy, and lots of subscribers appears not to be comfortable with the update. Right now, subscribers are dumping the app for other apps like telegram and signal. The encrypted messaging app Telegram has registered 25 million new users in the past 72 hours, its Russia-born founder Pavel Durov said Tuesday, on the heels of WhatsApp announcing a change to its privacy terms. Durov, 36, said on his Telegram channel that the app had over 500 mill’oion monthly active users in the first weeks of January and “25 million new users joined Telegram in the last 72 hours alone”. The surge in downloads comes after WhatsApp, which boasts over two billion users, introduced controversial changes to its privacy conditions that will allow it to share more data with its parent company Facebook. People no longer want to exchange their privacy for free services,” Durov said without directly referring to the rival app. WhatsApps’s new terms sparked criticism as users outside Europe who do not accept the new conditions before February 8 will be cut off from the messaging app. I use telegram, and Telegram has more features than WhatsApp, available in different countries of the world. Although, WhatsApp has clarified it stand on the new policy, but subscribers are still dumping it.
  18. WhatsApp owned by Facebook with a userbase of more than 2 billion, in a surprise move, has updated its privacy policy and users are not happy about it. Users are receiving this notice via a pop-up alert in the app, narrowing down on the new set of policies that are in place. If you don’t accept the new privacy policy, your current WhatsApp will be deleted. Some individuals are already switching to another messaging platform because WhatsApp broke its promise of privacy policy and keeping the user interest at stake. When Facebook acquired WhatsApp for $19 billion, they vowed user privacy protection, and that no changes would be made to it. But now, the tables have turned as the opt-out option is going to be completely removed by February 8. Decline the new policies and you’ll no longer be able to use WhatsApp at all. Switching messaging apps is probably the single hardest thing to do online, short of maybe changing your primary email address. And in large part, that’s because it’s not really up to you. We’re all stuck using whatever our friends and family have, and convincing them all to make the jump with you is a herculean task. So, have you switched from WhatsApp to something else? Feel free to tell us your recommendations (if you have any that might help fellow readers) or any tips for getting friends and family to make the switch.
  19. The year is winding up and as expected, WhatsApp has dropped an update, will stop working on some Android and iPhone smartphones, due to updates to both operating systems and applications to keep up to date. I believe this update is to make some smartphone owners update their smartphones to more recent updated phones. WhatsApp Won’t Work on These iPhones All iPhones that do not have at least iOS 9 software will not be able to run WhatsApp from 2021. That is all iPhone 4 and earlier models. Models 4S, 5, 5S, 5C, 6, and 6S will need to update their operating system to iOS 9 or later to continue using WhatsApp. For Androids All Android smartphones that are not running at least Android 4.0.3 will not be able to access WhatsApp. These include models like HTC Desire, LG Optimus Black, Motorola Droid Razr, and Samsung Galaxy S2, among others that were launched around 2012. For users still using devices listed above or running below the listed Android software, it is advisable you should upgrade your device to a new one or dump your old phone. WhatsApp Beta Calls on Desktop The Facebook-owned messaging app is rolling out a desktop calling feature to selected users in beta, allowing them to make calls — voice and video from their laptop/desktop. The feature is expected to roll out to all users in the coming days once testing is complete.
  20. Popular instant messenger, WhatsApp is working on a new feature called “Read Later”, which will be implemented as a replacement for Archived Chats. The new feature “Read Later” is an improved version of “Archived Chats”, which is currently being tested on the beta version of WhatsApp for iOS, WABetaInfo reported, and is available to try out through the Apple TestFlight beta program. This new Read Later feature will include the new Vacation Mode functionality, which allows you to continue hiding archived chats even when new messages arrive. The Read Later cell will be always visible in your chats list. Additionally, when a chat is placed into the Read Later section, the user will not receive notifications from that chat. The report stated that the Read Later section will be always visible in the list of WhatsApp chats. Users can edit the Read Later section to disable the Vacation Mode functionality, enabling notifications for chats stored in this section. The user can decide to disable the Vacation mode included in “Read Later” selecting Edit Archive Settings (or WhatsApp Settings > Chats) and enabling Move Chats in Read Later, and automatically save received media to your camera roll.
  21. Just a few days ago, WhatsApp announced that it will be rolling out a disappearing message feature, and the feature is now rolling out. The feature has been in development and beta testing for many months now and is finally rolling out globally to everyone over the next few weeks. Disappearing Messages: The feature itself is quite simple. Once turned on in either a group chat or an individual chat, any messages sent henceforth will be deleted from the chat on both the phone and server-side, after a period of 7 days. How to Turn On Disappearing Messages In individual chats, disappearing messages can be toggled by either participant and in group chats, only the admins can toggle it. Simply tap the contact or group name on the chat screen, select disappearing messages, and accept when prompted. You can check more about it here. WhatsApp Payment Launched around mid-June 2020, WhatsApp pay allows you to securely send and receive money through WhatsApp within your chat with family, friends, and businesses. It first rolled out to Brazil, now it is rolling out to India. WhatsApp designed the payments feature in partnership with the National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI) using the Unified Payment Interface (UPI), an India-first, a real-time payment system that enables transactions with over 160 supported banks. To send money on WhatsApp in India, it’s necessary to have a bank account and debit card in India. WhatsApp sends instructions to banks, also known as payment service providers, that initiate the transfer of money via UPI between sender and receiver bank accounts. The service is already rolling out to users and should arrive for everyone in the coming weeks. The feature will roll out to other countries in the coming weeks
  22. WhatsApp has made it easy to review, bulk delete items, and free up space. This new storage management has started rolling out and it conveniently allows you to group both large files and media that has been forwarded many times, sorts files by size in descending order, and provides a way to preview files before deleting them. You can see the preview of the media before selecting one or multiple items to delete. The new storage management tool can be found in Settings > Storage and Data > Manage Storage. It has a ‘Forwarded Many Times’ tabs and ‘Review and Delete Items’ tab with a ‘Larger than 5 MB’ sorting option as default to clean up files easily. WhatsApp has also posted a video that shows how the feature works and free up a large amount of space by clearing the duplicate items. The update is already rolling out to Android users. The feature is now rolling out on both Android and iOS. You can try out the feature by updating WhatsApp to the latest version available on Play Store or App Store.
  23. This feature is one of the most awaited features on WhatsApp and the company as just announced an important update about the feature to be available to some operating system in the next few weeks. With “disappearing messages”, any message you set to disappear after a while will be automatically deleted from the chat! A message is eligible to be disappeared when the chat is marked as “disappeared”. You can send messages that disappear on WhatsApp by enabling disappearing messages. Once enabled, new messages sent in the individual or group chat will disappear after 7 days. The most recent selection controls all messages in the chat. This setting won’t affect messages you previously sent or received in the chat. In an individual chat, either user can turn disappearing messages on or off. In a group chat, only group admins can turn disappearing messages on or off. Everything You Should Know About Disappearing Messages If a user doesn’t open WhatsApp in the seven days, the message will disappear. However, the preview of the message might still be displayed in notifications until WhatsApp is opened. When you reply to a message, the initial message is quoted. If you reply to a disappearing message, the quoted text might remain in the chat after seven days. If a disappearing message is forwarded to a chat with disappearing messages off, the message won’t disappear in the forwarded chat. If a user creates a backup before a message disappears, the disappearing message will be included in the backup. Disappearing messages will be deleted when a user restores from a backup. Note: Only use disappearing messages with trusted individuals. For example, it’s possible for someone to: Forward or take a screenshot of a disappearing message and save it before it disappears. Copy and save content from the disappearing message before it disappears. Take a photo of a disappearing message with a camera or other device before it disappears. Eligible Devices for Disappearing Messages WhatsApp also announced that iOS, Android, KaiOS, and Web/Desktop will get the feature when it rolls out in the next few weeks.
  24. A lot of times, most WhatsApp users have run into an issue with their messenger, ranging from bugs, crashing, etc and you find it difficult to get a response from support even when you send a mail to [email protected] But WhatsApp is working on a better way, a feature on how you can easily get in touch with the support, one on one within the messenger app. WhatsApp IN-APP Supports In this case, WhatsApp is currently developing a feature that allows us to communicate with the technical support within the app. Once the feature is complete, a new section will be available within the app from WhatsApp settings. From this section, you can report a bug, crashing or any issue you are facing on your messenger. In this case, device information like system details and log may be requested from you to help them give you the best answers. When WhatsApp has an answer for the user, he will receive the message in a WhatsApp Support chat, allowing to communicate with the technician. When the conversation is over, the chat will be automatically marked as closed. At the moment, the feature is currently in work and is expected to roll out when completed. (Source)
