It was months ago when WhatsApp had talked about features that it plans to add to the app. Now, although the app has been on a roll, releasing new updates and features, there are few features that still haven’t made it to the app. These include dark mode, and whatsapp fingerprint lock, among others. Let’s have a look at these features that we’re still waiting for to show up.
Voice Message Preview
Just recently, WABetaInfo , a site that constantly puts out new WhatsApp updates shared a screenshot of the new WhatsApp feature via Twitter that’s still under development. WhatsApp will soon be rolling out a new feature that’s aimed at allowing the users to preview incoming voice messages on the notification panel. However, there’s no word yet on when exactly we can expect it to arrive.
WhatsApp Dark Mode
WhatsApp Dark Mode/ Night mode has made the headlines too many times now that we’ve lost count. And despite WhatsApp promising to release the feature soon, there’s no sign of the feature that’s going to make the overall theme of WhatsApp darker making its way to our messenger. There are many reasons users are waiting for dark mode: less glare, less power consumption, and an overall better aesthetic.
It was two weeks when the news of WhatsApp introducing “QR Code Shortcut” for WhatsApp Android users came to light. The feature is set to make the process of scanning QR codes easier for the users, however we don’t when we’ll be getting the feature on the messenger. The feature was spotted by WAbetainfo, who tweeted regarding the QR code feature.
PiP Mode 2.0
Another feature that was announced late last month is the PIP mode 2.0. The feature would allow the users to switch to other chats while being also able to play YouTube or Facebook videos in the background. Now although we already have the PiP mode on WhatsApp, we can’t wait for PiP Mode 2.0.
WhatsApp Fingerprint Unlock
WhatsApp Fingerprint lock feature is one of those features that the company promised long back early this year. WhatsApp Scanner feature is aimed at adding more security to the app, however, it’s nowhere to be found. The only thing clear right now is that android users would be getting the feature before the iOS users.
