Three New Whatsapp Features Expected To Launch In 2021
Several WhatsApp features have rolled out since the start of the month, and there are more to follow. WhatsApp has been seen working on a handful of new features in recent weeks.
Some of these features are presently in development, while others are reportedly being tested in beta form (which means their rollout is not so far away). Most recently, WhatsApp was spotted testing Instagram Reels integration on the platform.
We’ve compiled a list of WhatsApp features that are in the work and are likely to roll out in the next few months. The new WhatsApp features are expected to enhance the messaging experience and introduce some new use cases for the app. Let’s take a look:
1. Multi-device support
This is the highly-anticipated feature from WhatsApp. The multi-device support will allow users to login WhatsApp accounts to multiple devices simultaneously. The feature is currently in development and has been spotted in the beta version one too many times.
Currently, WhatsApp only supports two devices at the same time, namely a phone and a desktop. The new multi-device support will reportedly allow users to add up to four devices on a single account.
This means that once the feature gets rolled out, you will be able to log in from your iPad and iPhone at the same time, along with the desktop.
2. WhatsApp logout
WhatsApp logout will replace the ‘Delete Account’ button and support the upcoming multi-device feature. As per a report of WaBetaInfo, which keeps a track of WhatsApp updates, the app will finally bring in a logout option for its users.
The option will allow users to logout WhatsApp accounts from their devices, just like Facebook and other social networking apps. The feature was recently spotted on the new beta version of WhatsApp and is said to roll out to both iOS and Android versions of the app soon.
The WhatsApp logout feature is likely to allow people on the app to use their account on multiple devices at the same time.
3. Instagram Reels on WhatsApp
WhatsApp to get Instagram Reels section going forward. The feature will reportedly allow users to watch Instagram Reels directly from the messaging app. This could be a part of WhatsApp’s integration plan with other Facebook-owned apps. For those unaware, Instagram Reels is the short video feature, which was added to the picture-sharing app last year.
