The most popular messaging app is about to add a few more features to the service. If reports are to be believed the new feature will allow users to share music with contacts.
The German site Macerkopf explains that the forthcoming features were marked in the iOS beta in which users can share songs with their contacts. Additionally, the users will be allowed to share music stored locally as well as from Apple Music. As of now, it is unknown if the feature will be extended to other streaming services such as Gaana, Saavn, Spotify and others.
The iOS users will get other fresh features such as the capability to share larger emojis. As per the previous reports, WhatsApp is allegedly working on an update that will automatically display GIFS, which are pasted in the conversation. Twitter account @WABetaInfo, which keeps a track of regular WhatApp beta updates stated that the changelog of WhatsApp beta for iOS 18.104.22.168 is available now. The app will also allow users to send group invites. Additionally, the changelog mentions that the app will be able to save GIFs ‘as a simple image.’ WhatsApp will embed GIFs from links and autoplay them in conversations. One will also be able to convert a GIF to a simple image.
Other buzz about WhatsApp is that the company is expected to bring in video calling. AndroidPit reported receiving screenshots from users running the beta version of WhatsApp on iOS that show a video call button at the top of the chat, next to the regular call button
