New features coming to WhatsApp web with the latest update
New features are coming for the desktop version of the messaging service, WhatsApp, as the company is rolling out new update through the official beta channel.
One of the new features being introduced is the incoming call ringtone and turn off all desktop incoming calls. This feature would extend more control to the users while managing call notifications when they are using the web version of the messaging application.
WABetaInfo reports that the second feature in the new update would be a new interface for Contact Info, Business Info, and Group Info. The new web interface would be similar to the interface users see on their Android or iPhone when they are looking at a contact or group info.
The new interface feature is being rolled out for specific beta testers only.
“If you want to verify if the new interface is already enabled for your WhatsApp account, just open Contact Info or Group Info (and be sure it’s not Business Info)”, WABetaInfo said.
The new features will be available for users once they update their application to the latest versions, however, there is a chance that some might not receive the new options right now. The WhatsApp update tracker said that those users will soon receive updates with more activations following.
WhatsApp desktop beta versions may be released for a specific platform in advance so the users have to wait for some days to get the new version for the platforms they are using.
