WhatsApp Is Going To Introduce New Features In 2020


The famous messaging app, WhatsApp is introducing four very interesting features in 2020 to revolutionize the chat app for its users. One of them is the much anticipated dark mode feature.

The Facebook-owned chat-app is a popular messaging app with nearly 1.5 billion users. Although it is not confirmed yet, but there are some clues in beta versions of the software.

Following are the new features that we can expect from WhatsApp in 2020.

Dark Mode

There are some clues that WhatsApp is apparently considering to construct two new possible looks – one in greyscale, and another in pitch-blacks. The pitch-black hues will act as a battery-saver for smartphones users flaunting OLED touchscreens, while the greyscale will help those people who want to comfort their eyes during late-night usage of the chat app. According to WaBetaInfo, the dark theme is ready for the Android version of WhatsApp.

Self-Destructing Messages

Remember Tom Cruise’s Mission Impossible movies where he receives self-destructed messages. Yes, you are right. WhatsApp is working on a new feature that will let the user set a timer on the texts, so that any text message, photo, video evaporates after certain time that the user decided. It may be one hour, one day, one week, one month or even one year.

Adverts Incoming

Yes, some advertisement time. The advertisements will be played during slides on WhatsApp Statuses. It will be like the way adverts appear on other Facebook platforms, including Instagram. WaBetaInfo describes the ads as "status advertisements".

Shopping Brochures

This is an interesting feature as WhatsApp will introduce shopping catalogs to its WhatsApp Business app. The software is aimed to help clients communicate with businesses by using the same tools as the normal chat app which is available worldwide.

There is also speculation that there will be another feature that WhatsApp will introduce.

Reverse Search Tool

This WhatsApp tool will help users to find the original image with reference of its real sender. The images will be uploaded on Google search through in-app browser which will show users the original images.
