Let's just keep all the things aside and Let the tech begin!

1. Audio playback in notifications for iOS

WhatsApp is going to allow the playing of video/audio files shared via WhatsApp directly on the notification bar. This lets users more comfortable by not going inside the app to play the media.

2. Making Albums

WhatsApp is going to group up photos and videos sent in an album format. However, this is not going to happen for the web version. According to the sources, WhatsApp is reportedly working on this feature for the web version too.

3. Calls Using Google Assistant

Now Google Assistant is going to allow audio and video chatting assistance for users, earlier it used to be only sharing text messages. But now users can make video and audio call with only one command to Google Assistant,

Hey  Google, WhatsApp Video <contact name>

This is only available on recently updated WhatsApp and Google Assistant for Android. It is going to be expected after few months for iOS.

4. Built-in GIF maker

There is an in-built GIF maker tool for video in the new update. When we record a video with the in-app camera, we can turn it into a GIF by trimming it into a specified duration. 

To use this feature,
  • Open the in-app Camera.
  • Hold the record video button and start recording the video.
  • After that, there will be a GIF button at the top-right corner of the video.
  • We can trim the video with the available trim feature.

5. Share Status on Facebook

Now Watsapp allows us to share Watsapp status as a Facebook status simultaneously. 

To use this feature,
  • Tap "Status" On WhatsApp.
  • Create a status and tap share to share the Facebook story.
  • In Facebook select the friends you want to share with and tap share now. 

6. Listen to Voice Messages Privately

WhatsApp has become much intelligent these days. It has got many interesting and useful features for listening to voice messages.

If you want to listen to that weird, crappy, and useless voice message sent by your friend privately, just put your mobile phone up against your ear, WhatsApp will detect your ear and play the voice directly from the phone's earpiece instead of the speaker.

7. Multi-Platform Support

WhatsApp will come up with a new multi-platform support feature. This lets users use WhatsApp simultaneously.

However, the present web version of WhatsApp works only like the team viewer version by syncing with WhatsApp for mobile. This multi-platform feature is first going to hit Apple's iPad as a standalone app.

8. Boomerang Videos

WhatsApp is going to introduce the most attractive and used feature of Instagram's boomerang feature. This feature makes video play in the loop. It will be available in the video Type Panel along with the GIF maker tool on WhatsApp.


Overall, All these features would work on the recently updated version except few future updates. Not only these, there are many more features that are going to be rolling out on Watsapp for both android and iOS, and also the must-awaited update for WhatsApp on the web is also coming soon.
