WhatsApp recently released a new Windows app that, by all means, is a facsimile to its mobile counterpart.
What to look forward to
Unique features include a faster loading time and the capacity for users to host group video calls with up to 8 people and audio calls with up to 32 participants.
The new WhatsApp app for Windows desktop is similar to the mobile app and is said to offer a faster and seamless experience for using the app across multiple devices.
Plus, it can let you have group video calls with up to 8 people and voice calls with up to 32 people.
iPhone exclusive features
After updating the WhatsApp app on their Windows desktop, users will have access to the new features.
On top of that, WABetaInfo suggests that the developers are working on a new feature that will let iPhone users send short video messages of up to 60 seconds.
All you have to do is tap and hold the camera button while recording the video message.
Rest assured that video messages will be end-to-end encrypted and users won’t be able to save or forward these messages.
However, WhatsApp might allow users to take screenshots.
Features for Android users to anticipate
Till now it is up in the air if and when WhatsApp will roll out the video message feature to everyone, so it might take a while before it is rolled out to everyone.
Earlier this month, WhatsApp rolled out several new features like the ability to approve group participants, split screen view on Android powered tablets, call link for Windows and more.
