WhatsApp has officially launched a range of new features for its app, so it’s time to do a dreaded upgrade to get access.
“We also continue to push forward our product design to make sure WhatsApp remains the most useful way for anyone, anywhere to connect,” said WhatsApp in their blog post.
Though not all of the announced features are available right away, they will be rolled out in the coming weeks.
-Animated stickers: WhatsApp is bringing out new animated stickers, which have spiked in popularity since they were first introduced.
-QR codes: Much like the long-lost BBM, you can now add a new contact using their QR code
-Dark mode for WhatsApp Web and Desktop: Complete your move to the dark side by incorporating your laptop
-Better group video calls: You can now have up to 8 people on a video call, press, and maximise on a participant to make them full screen and add a video icon in group chats so you can call your group quickly.
-Status comes to KaiOS: KaiOS users can now have status updates
