WhatsApp has started rolling out a new update to its iOS users that brings a host of new features. The latest update adds new calling waiting feature along with new chat design and it also updates Braille keyboard.
The major highlight of the update is the new calling waiting feature. With this, users will get a notification whenever a person calls on WhatsApp while the user is already on a call. This will help the user to decide whether to switch to the new call immediately or not. Furthermore, the update brings updated Chat screen design, which the company claims will make it easier to scan messages. Apart from this, users can now send messages directly from the Braille keyboard using VoiceOver mode.
Meanwhile, WhatsApp is also reported to be working on Snapchat-like disappearing messages along with a new dark-mode known as Delete Messages. The latest features have been spotted on the beta version of the Android application. Starting with the disappearing messages, it will allow users to delete their messages automatically after a desired period of time. WABetaInfo reveals that users can select between one hour, one day, one week, one month and one year.
Previously, a new security vulnerability was discovered that allows hackers to steal personal information using a specially-crafted MP4 file on WhatsApp. Once a user downloaded an MP4 file from the messaging application, hackers could execute a snooping attack. The vulnerability is discovered in both Android and iOS versions.
