Though, as at the time of writing this post, Whatsapp hasn’t yet imposed these modification, but trust the required test running on these new features, meanwhile let’s have a glimpse of Whatsapp latest update pertaining these glitches.

Whatsapp “Live Location” Feature

Few days ago, Whatsapp announced that users will be able to share the location with friends and family in real time. If you’ve used the sharing feature before, you know we could already share locations before, except it was static. With this one though, you’ll be able to share it in real time, almost like a Google Map of chat.

This is how it will work — open a chat with the person or group you want to share with. Go to Location, from the attach B.utton. The attach options will have “Share Live Location”. When you select it, you can even choose for how long you intend to share location with the other person. Then hit send. If more than one person shares their Live Location in the group, all locations will be visible on the same map.

Note that this is an end to those times you lie to your friends that you’re in a particular location when you’re somewhere else. It won’t end well when they request you share your location.

Whatsapp’s “Unsend Chat Message” Feature

As already stated, Whatsapp is currently testing an ‘unsend’ feature which will help users to get rid of messages sent either by a mistake or deliberately. With the Delete for Everyone’ feature, those messages you send angrily or when not in good state of mind can be deleted from your Whatsapp Chat Window using ‘unsend’ B.utton.

One-on-one video calls were introduced to the application in 2016 and voice-calling in 2014. Its users spend up to 2 billion minutes per day talking on the phone. But WhatsApp took its time adding this feature that allows you to call more people at a time, regardless of where you are.

WhatsApp calls reportedly have end-to-end encryption like standard messages on the platform.

Facebook, the parent company for both WhatsApp and Instagram, announced in May at its F8 developer conference that it was building this feature (group calling with both voice and video support) for both apps. The feature became available on Facebook in June, with the same four-person limit.

The feature is engineered to work under less-than-stellar network conditions, according to the company, so you can video chat a friend or family member from wherever you are as long as you can connect to the internet.

Although this is good news for many active WhatsApp users, iOS 12’s FaceTime allows for up to 32 people at once.

Either way, this feature is rolling out today to its 1.5 billion monthly active users, so enjoy!
