Last week, we had exclusively covered about the callback and voicemail features in the Whatsapp for Android. Apart from this, the company also introduced several new features in the last few months. Now the latest iOS version of Whatsapp (V2.16.7) brings one more new features to the app. The emoji that sent alone will be displayed in a bigger size than the text, though this a new feature on Whatsapp, other instant messaging apps already had this feature.
While other IM apps also had the sticker, Whatsapp is yet to introduce this new feature. Facebook’s another messaging app, Messenger introduced the sticker for both Web and Apps in 2013 and 2014 respectively. Talking about the new emoji feature, as of now it is only available to iOS users and there is no information about the availability of this feature for Android users. Facebook had introduced the group voice calls on Messenger where we can talk upto 50 users at a time.
Talking about the WhatsApp, the video calling is said to be available in the coming months. We already saw several leaks from almost a year showing the video calling UI. While the voice calls are first introduced for Android users, the video calling might be available first for iOS users. Earlier this year, the company made the WhatsApp free for all by removing the $1 annual fee and also brought the end-to-end encryption.
