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.

Instagram like feature now in WhatsApp also

According to the website, currently some beta testers have received this update on Android and iOS. With this new update the user experience will change and people will find it easier to reply. This feature will work just like Instagram where by default you get the reply option below when you view the story. Note, after the introduction of the new feature, when you take a screenshot of the status, the 'reply bar' will also be visible in it. That means you will not be able to take screenshots like at present.

You will be able to listen to music during video calls

WhatsApp's parent company Meta is soon going to launch a cool feature for the instant messaging app. This feature can be used during video calls on WhatsApp. Actually, meetings are held in the office through video calls through WhatsApp, sometimes these meetings become quite boring. In such a situation, Meta will allow listening to music during video calls on WhatsApp. According to the report of WaBetaInfo, this feature of WhatsApp is in the developing phase, which is not yet available for beta testers, but Meta is in the mood to develop and test this feature as soon as possible and then launch it. In such a situation, if this feature is rolled out soon then you are going to have fun.

The good thing about this feature is that along with the voice of video calling, you will also hear music. Meaning you will neither miss the meeting nor miss the music. Apart from this, if you share the screen with someone, music will be heard at that time also. This will give you immersive and audio video experience. When users enable this feature, they will be able to share the audio with other people.
