WhatsApp is regularly updating its app with the introduction of new features. And now, next in the line, the messaging app is coming up with an in-app emoji search on the Android beta app. Additionally, a well-designed feature entitled video streaming will be released for all iPhone users. The company is also said to publish an FAQ page to embrace more data about the upcoming recall feature, suggesting at a forth coming launch.
The emoji search feature has been made available to Android users in beta version and can be expected to make its way to the stable version soon. The emoji search is activated on the Beta version 2.17.246. The user will be shown a list of emoji on tapping the emoji icon, where a search icon is placed at the bottom. You can type the keyword for the icon you want to search by selecting the search icon. For instance, if you type “hand,” all hand emoji suggestions will be shown up in a new bar from which you can select the one you want.
The video streaming feature seems to be launched for the stable version of iPhone users. It enables the users to see shared videos while being downloaded in the background. Cellular or Wi-Fi data is used to buffer the shared video. Previously, a user has to wait till the complete download of video to see it. If you can see a play icon on your iOS rather than the normal download button, at the video dialogue box’s bottom the video size is mentioned. The moment you toggle the play button, video streaming is initiated based on your Internet connection speed.The video plays during the streaming while being downloaded in the background. This feature has silently arrived last week with version 2.17.31 released, but according to the reports of WaBeta Info, is stimulation is very slow. Thus, it may take some time before you can see it.
To conclude with, the instant messaging app is also reported to have briefly refreshed the WhatsApp FAQ page to add the recall feature. Nevertheless, the data was hauled back soon after it was noticed by the tipster. Thus, this indicates at a forthcoming appearance of the feature soon in the stable version.
