From edit button to cover photos: Here are the upcoming WhatsApp features


WhatsApp is working on a number of new features and they will be available to the users in the near future. These features were spotted by popular WhatsApp feature tracker WABetaInfo in the beta version.

Here are the 10 upcoming features of WhatsApp:

Edit Button

Probably, this is the feature we all have been waiting for a long time. And the global messaging app will finally be letting us edit a message by adding an edit button.

Hide Online Status

Just like the picture, text and video on your WhatsApp status, soon you will also be able to hide your online status from certain contacts as well.

Expanding Message Reactions

At the moment, the meta owned app has rolled out only six message reactions. In the near future, you will be able to add the emoji of your choice to any message you want.

Moving Chats from Android to iOS

Earlier this year, users were enabled to move their chats from iOS to android. Now, WhatsApp is working to enable Android users to move their chats to iOS devices.

Pause Voice Message While Recording

We are often forced to record our message all over again due to numerous reason. And now, the global messaging app has decided to resolve this problem for us. You will be able to pause your voice message while recording and continue where you left.

Cover Photos

This feature is for the WhatsApp Business users. Just like Facebook and Twitter, you will be able to add a cover photo to your account.

Mute Specific Contacts in Group Calls

Group calls aren’t always how one expect them, they turn a little noisy at times. However, soon WhatsApp users will be able to mute specific contacts during a group call.

Group Polls

Instead of asking people to type their responses to a question, you will soon be able to know their answers by creating a simple pool in the groups.

WhatsApp Premium

The Meta owned app has been working to introduce WhatsApp Premium for some time now. With a premium WhatsApp, which will require you to pay a certain amount and is meant for WhatsApp Business users, you will have a number of new features available to you.
