WhatsApp to Get New Major Features Soon

After receiving a major backlash for change in its privacy policy and facing an exodus of users to other IM platforms, WhatsApp has sped up the pace of adding new features to the platform.

Over the past few months, the company has rolled out several new features. Now, according to a recent report by WABetaInfo, that Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook, and Will Cathcart, Chief of WhatsApp, have confirmed that the messaging platform will soon get multi-device support for using the app on multiple devices at the same time.

In addition to this, Zuckerberg has also confirmed that WhatsApp will soon get a ‘disappearing mode’ across all chat threads which will allow users to enforce disappearing messages on all of their WhatsApp chat threads.

WhatsApp Disappearing Mode and View Once Mode

This feature is more of an extension of the already available seven-day timer feature. The likes of Telegram and other IM apps allow users to set the timer for a few seconds to a fixed number of days.

Furthermore, the report claims that WhatsApp is also planning to add a ‘view once’ feature. As the name suggests, this will allow users to share media files like photos and videos that can be seen by the recipient just once and after that, it will disappear. Facebook has already introduced this feature to Instagram and Facebook Messenger.

The exact date for the rollout of these features is not yet known.
