Will Cathcart, the CEO of WhatsApp, and Mark Zuckerberg, the co-founder of Facebook, are said to have shared a lot of information about planned WhatsApp features. The information, pertaining to upcoming WhatsApp features, was obtained, nevertheless, not through a press release or a social media post, but rather through an apparent group chat including a notable leaker.
According to rumors, the creator of the well-known WABetaInfo website was included to a WhatsApp group chat with Cathcart and Zuckerberg. And the Facebook co-founder verified a number of WhatsApp upcoming features, including a disappearing mode for any chat thread (previously only one-on-one chats), “view once” capability (sending content to somebody and having it fade away after they view it), and multi-device support without an active internet connection on the primary machine.
Cathcart also made multi-device support crystal clear, stating that a public beta with the capability will be available in the next two months tome come and that multi-device support is only limited to four devices.
The CEO also mentioned WhatsApp on iPad, stating that the firm would “love to support” the software on Apple’s tablets, but that it would require adequate implementation of multi-device capabilities and functionalities. In any case, we’re delighted to see that multi-device support isn’t far off, especially as Telegram has had a comparable functionality for a long now.
It all appears incredible but WABetaInfo has the best track record when it comes to the worth-considering news about upcoming WhatsApp features, going through the most recent upgrades to find out what’s coming next. We still suggest you to take this with a grain of salt, but when it comes to WhatsApp news in general, this is about as good a third-party source as it gets.
