New Cool WhatsApp Features That You Should Know About

Being one of the most popular instant chatting platforms out there, WhatsApp tries to be ahead in terms of functionality. Currently, WhatsApp is not the best instant chat app comparing to its close rival Telegram and even WeChat, which both have an excellent package of extra features.

Away from that, WhatsApp Beta is always updated with new functionalities that are likely to hit the public channel sooner or later.

As of now, WhatsApp has two new cool features. One of the features is the Integration. With this integration, you can now be able to create reminders and tasks inside WhatsApp via the bot.

Tasks can also be created by forwarding WhatsApp messages to the bot. The reminders you set will also be received in WhatsApp when due.

Aside from the ability to create tasks and reminders, this integration also allows you to share lists and assign tasks, plus there is a syncing capability with tasks outside WhatsApp.

On top of that, you can also integrate with over 1500 apps, thanks to integration. However, this feature will need you to have a premium subscription, which costs $2.99 a month.

To enable WhatsApp from the app: 

  • Make sure you have an Premium account.
  • Go to Settings -> Integrations -> WhatsApp.
  • Add your phone number and tap ‘send’.
  • Finish the verification process by entering the 6 digits code send via text and tap confirm.
  • Turn your reminders on and start messaging to create tasks!

Another nifty feature added on WhatsApp is the Call waiting support. Through this feature, WhatsApp will now let a call go through even if you’re on another call. Under the call waiting feature, you will now be able to either ditch the current call or reject the incoming one. In the past, the app automatically rejected calls when the receiver was on another call. Call waiting is available on WhatsApp’s latest version, 2.19.352.

And if you are eagerly waiting for WhatsApp’s dark mode, the latest update provided by WABetainfo states that it might come in three options, set by battery saver, dark, and light. This has been spotted on WhatsApp beta for Android 2.19.353.
