Meta owned WhatsApp is now adding the ability to securely transfer data between Android and iOS users.
Last year, Meta launched the ability to switch from iOS to Android.
MAJOR CHANGES ON WHATSAPP
According to owner, Mark Zuckerberg, this is one of the most requested features
“We’re adding to WhatsApp the ability to securely switch between phones and transfer your chat history, photos, videos, and voice messages between Android and iPhone while maintaining end-to-end encryption.
“This is a top requested feature. We launched the ability to switch from iPhone to Android last year, and now adding Android to iPhone as well.”
NEW FEATURE MIGHT ALLOW YOU TO EXIT GROUPS SILENTLY
Soon you might be able to exit noisy WhatsApp groups! WhatsApp is reportedly testing a new feature that lets you quietly leave a group chat without sending a notification to other members.
According to the Daily Mail, the new feature was first spotted by independent WhatsApp experts WABetaInfo, which searches early beta versions of the app to identify upcoming features before they are released.
It clarified in a blog post that group admins will still be able to see who exits the group when the feature becomes available, but other members won’t.
The new feature could prevent awkward confrontations with more sensitive group members who might take your departure badly.
