WhatsApp has more than 2 billion active users worldwide. From time to time the company keeps bringing new updates to the app. A few months ago, WhatsApp had introduced the channel feature in the app which allows people to connect with their favorite creators, celebs and institutions without the number. Now the company is going to add some new features to the channel. If you also have a WhatsApp channel, then know whether something new is coming.
According to Wabetainfo, a website that keeps an eye on the development of WhatsApp, the company is bringing 3 new features for the channel which include channel alert, hide navigation level and the facility to search messages by date. You will find channel alerts under 'Channel Info' in the three dot menu visible on the right side of the channel. Here you will get updates that will tell you that you have violated the company's rules within the channel. Apart from this, the company is adding a feature in the app to remove the navigation level and top bar while scrolling the screen down. Additionally, you will now be able to search messages within the channel by date.
Currently these updates are available in the beta version of WhatsApp which can be available to all users soon. If you also want to be the first to get the latest updates of the company, then you can enroll for the WhatsApp beta program.
This update is coming in the status tab
Social media giant WhatsApp is working on a new feature. Soon you will be able to see the reply bar when you view someone's status in the status tab. Currently, what happens in the app is that when you see someone's status, to reply to it, you have to click on the reply arrow seen below. But soon you will get the option of reply bar by default. That means you do not need to click anywhere. You can directly reply to the person by typing the message in the reply bar. The information about this update has been shared by Wabetainfo, a website that keeps an eye on the development of WhatsApp.
