WhatsApp is set to enhance user experience with its latest update, which has been thoroughly tested by beta users. The update introduces a subtle way to start conversations in large chat groups, allowing for more discreet communication without notifying all group members at once.
This update is particularly beneficial for frequent users of WhatsApp's group chat feature.
As reported by WABetaInfo, the update enables users to initiate group voice chats in a more private manner. Previously, starting a group conversation would alert all members, but with the new update, conversations can be started quietly, sending notifications only to those involved.
How to get the WhatsApp update
The feature will be available in the upcoming stable release of WhatsApp for mobile devices, making it accessible to all users on Android and iOS platforms.
However, the rollout may vary, and it could take a few days for the feature to appear on all devices. Users are advised to update their WhatsApp application to the latest version to take advantage of this new feature.
In addition to this update, WhatsApp has introduced two new security features. These features, which are not enabled by default, can be activated in the settings.
One notable security enhancement allows voice conversations to be rerouted through WhatsApp's server, adding an extra layer of protection against potential hackers trying to access users' IP addresses.
