WhatsApp Upcoming Features 2021

Currently, WhatsApp is working on multiple new features, which are likely to land on WhatsApp in near future with coming updates. Some of these features are:

  • In-app support feature now available for beta testers

The popular messaging app has released a new in-app support feature for limited beta testers. The feature allows users to chat directly with WhatsApp support to report bugs or get help with the app.

The in-app support feature is currently available on the Android platform with the beta version update. It is likely to roll out to more users in the coming weeks.

To use the in-app support feature, users can open the WhatsApp settings menu and tap on “Help”. Then, they can select “Contact us” and start a chat with WhatsApp support.

The in-app support feature is a welcome addition to WhatsApp and will help users get the help they need more quickly.

  • “Support Chat Threads” feature to manage bug reports

The popular messaging app WhatsApp is reportedly working on a new feature called “Support Chat Threads”. The feature will allow users to report bugs and get help from WhatsApp support in a dedicated chat thread.

The chat threads will come with end-to-end encryption. Henceforth, users can get assurance that their privacy is protected. Once the issue is resolved, the chat thread will be automatically closed.

WABetainfo, a website that tracks WhatsApp updates. This popular website confirms that the feature will debut with future iOS and Android updates for the instant messaging app.

As of now, the instant messaging app responds to users’ queries in a group chat. However, the new “Support Chat Threads” feature will give users more control over how they interact with Whats App support.

WhatsApp faces backlash over new privacy policy in India

The Facebook-owned popular messaging app is facing backlash in India over its new privacy policy. The new privacy policy, which was announced in January 2021, would allow WhatsApp to share some user data with its parent company, Facebook.

The Indian government has asked instant messaging app company to withdraw the policy altogether, and the Competition Commission of India (CCI) has ordered a probe into the matter.

WhatsApp has said that the new policy is necessary to improve the app and provide better services to users. However, many users are concerned about their privacy and have threatened to switch to other messaging apps.

It remains to be seen whether the instant messaging app will be able to implement the new policy in India. However, the backlash has certainly damaged the company’s reputation in the country.
