WhatsApp is not a new thing to bring new features to enhance the practical experience of users! But now the company seems to be making new additions to the move. According to a recent report from WhatsApp’s feature tracker WABetaInfo, the company is now working on a new community tab for its mobile application. This feature allows group admins to add specific groups to the “community”. These groups will then be grouped together under the Community tab.
According to WABetaInfo, this community tab feature is currently under development. This feature has been seen in the latest WhatsApp beta version of Android 126.96.36.199. WABetaInfo also shared a screenshot of the community tab icon. According to the screenshot, the new community tab icon has been replaced by the existing version’s camera icon. Note that the Community tab is a shortcut to the “Community Home” feature. That being said, communities will be end-to-end encrypted and will help group admins have better control over their groups.
Not to be outdone, WhatsApp is reportedly working on another new feature in its latest beta version. WABetaInfo reports that this feature allows Android beta testers to pause and resume voice recordings. To use this feature, Android users need to update their WhatsApp to version 188.8.131.52. In addition to this, a web form will be seen while recording voice in the new version.
On the other hand, the company owned by Meta is reported to be rolling out a redesigned interface for voice calls. As a result, users will now see a new interface when making voice calls in the messaging app. Again, real-time voice waveform can be seen during group calls. As a result, everyone can easily understand who is talking in the group call. WABetaInfo also said that WhatsApp will now display wallpaper in the voice call interface. However, users cannot edit or remove it. Note that WhatsApp is still working on all these features. No definitive information has yet been received from the company about when the stable rollout of features will take place.
