[REVIEW] : WhatsApp users benefit from this new professional feature
The popular WhatsApp instant messaging app offers a new feature for business users: a new shortcut to quickly reply to messages. The shortcut would be available for the beta of WhatsApp for some business owners on Android and iOS. It’s important to note here that the new update won’t bring the quick response feature itself. Instead, it will bring the shortcut for the function, which has been around for some time for WhatsApp Business users.
According to a report from WABetaInfo, the app is now receiving the shortcut for the Quick Replies feature. The new shortcut would be available in the chat share action menu and would be available to beta testers on Android and iOS devices. Previously, to initiate a quick response, users had to press the “/” key on their keyboard and select a message from the list to send to the customer.
According to WABetaInfo, WhatsApp may be in the process of adding this new feature in order to introduce business owners to the instant messaging app’s quick response feature.
The quick reply feature has been available for WhatsApp Business for some time. In 2019, the company extended the functionality to WhatsApp Web and the desktop app. It helps business owners answer the most common questions by sending predefined responses or messages.
WhatsApp is reportedly currently working on a series of new features relating to usability, privacy and other aspects. WhatsApp recently rolled out a custom sticker maker for WhatsApp Web, which is also expected to hit mobile and desktop apps soon.
WhatsApp completely revises the interface for voice calls
WhatsApp continues to improve with the updates and this time, it is the voice calls interface that will have the right to its little facelift. As usual, the WABeta Info site released the first visuals. This interface does not change much in appearance, but will make life easier for users.
WhatsApp perpetually welcomes updates in order to bring a better experience to users. One of the next big news will concern the call interface. This will be reviewed and not just to bring a different design, since it will aim to facilitate navigation and make group calls clearer.
WHATSAPP WILL HAVE THE RIGHT TO A NEW INTERFACE
As you can see, the interface does not change drastically compared to the old one (which is on the left). It will therefore not be necessary to find its marks. The buttons to manage the call are always at the bottom while the window dedicated to displaying your contact still takes up the entire screen. However, this is now materialized in the form of a square superimposed on a black background.
The window color might change depending on whether your contact is online or not. WAB also specifies that this interface was designed to make group calls much easier to use. If there is no associated visual offered here, we can imagine that each interlocutor will have his own square. At the moment, we don’t know more. It should be noted that here, we have visuals from the iOS version of the application. One can easily imagine that the Android version will follow the same path and offer the same thing, perhaps with a few small design niceties.
At the moment, these new audio conversations are not available, even in beta. We will have to wait a few weeks before being able to take advantage of it if Meta deems this redesign conclusive. WhatsApp continues to improve over the months. The application regularly experiences small changes of this type, such as the ability to listen to voice messages before sending them or even options dedicated to ephemeral messages.
WhatsApp reworks the interface of its audio calls to make it more modern
WhatsApp is constantly on the move to improve its functions, bring new ones, in order to become the essential messaging system. After better management of group calls, more powers conferred on administrators, or the possibility of listening to voice messages again before sending them, the platform wants to become your real phone.
For this, it has been reworking its interface for some time. This was first to show more participants and then to become more intuitive for iPhone users. This time it looks like it’s to prepare for future additions for all registrants.
MORE MODERN AND MORE MODULAR
The WABetaInfo site, which tracks the slightest improvements even when testing WhatsApp, has spotted new features under development, particularly concerning the voice call interface. You could now join ongoing group WhatsApp calls. It could be even better organized in the future.
And for that, space is needed on the screen to display the information of all the participants. So the Meta service redesigns its interface, already drawing inspiration from Apple’s FaceTime for video appearance.
WABetaInfo has thus identified a redesigned ergonomics, also more modern with its tiles and roundness. It appears more compact to better visually center use and information. We could envisage the appearance, in the event of a group call, of faces more easily in the form of small squares. This future update would affect both iOS and Android users, according to the site. For the moment, it has not yet been deployed in the beta test phase.
With this change, WhatsApp always wants to remind you that the app is safe
WhatsApp will display visual indicators of the encryption so that we always know how secure their services are when we are talking and chatting with our friends and family,
They work slowly but they keep working, and it is that the Meta development engineers keep presenting improvements for WhatsApp, some more in-depth and some less important than this novelty that we are showing you today * i.
In fact, is that in view of the usual comments and discussions about the security of its service, it seems that WhatsApp wants to make us understand that it is safe to use it, and for that it has designed some indicators that will be present in all sections of the application very soon, starting with the beta versions of WhatsApp for iOS.
As always, colleagues at WaBetaInfo have told us that the change will also be implemented in Android soon so that we all have a visual benchmark of the end-to-end encryption that WhatsApp applies in all of our conversations.
So, the WhatsApp application itself will show us a message reminding us that all of our chats and calls are encrypted, so they always remain hidden from user to user, including their own servers. In fact, in Meta, the parent company of WhatsApp, no one will be able to read our conversations, or even listen to them, so WhatsApp is indeed a very safe place to talk with our friends and family.
