3 New Features in the latest version of WhatsApp
1. Shortcuts for quick access
The latest version adds support for 3D Touch menu for shortcuts. This provides quick access to frequently used functions such as “Send Message”.
Previously, 3D Touch compatibility was limited only to WhatsApp icon. However, this update adds this new feature natively.
2. Zoom in on profile picture
You can now get up, close and personal with the profile pictures of your contacts. This was a highly requested feature that was missing from WhatsApp.
Simply put, such functionality is of no use to the average users. However, stalkers will surely derive some benefit from this app.
3. Instantly switch from voice call to video call
This feature is the most useful out of all the three. As you may know, this feature is already present in other messaging apps but was somehow missing from the WhatsApp.
In the previous versions, you had to hang up and call your contact again just in case you wanted to switch from video call to a voice call or vice-versa.
With this update, you can seamlessly switch from voice calls to video calls at the tap of a button without any interruption.
