WhatsApp, the popular messaging platform, has introduced a new feature that will impact how disappearing messages function. The platform now offers a ‘Keep in Chat' option that enables users to retain certain chats for future reference. However, it is up to the sender to decide whether they want others in the chat to keep their messages. This feature will come in handy for users who wish to save important conversations and refer to them later.
WhatsApp will notify the sender if someone chooses to save a chat, and the saved messages will be denoted with a bookmark icon in the Kept Messages folder. This feature will be available to users worldwide, according to the Meta-owned messaging platform.
It is interesting to note that WhatsApp messages saved by users will be flagged, making it easier for them to locate and access them at a later time. Users will be able to save valuable messages for future reference, even if they are part of a disappearing message.
In other news, WhatsApp has rolled out a new stable update for iOS that includes a sticker maker tool. This feature enables users to create custom stickers within the app without relying on third-party tools. The feature will allow users to extract a subject from an image on iOS 16 and paste it into a chat. Once done, the image will be converted to a sticker and added to the user's sticker collection.
According to the WhatsApp feature tracker WABetaInfo, this sticker maker tool is designed to work on iOS 16, and there are no plans to make it available on devices running on older versions of iOS. Users can create custom stickers and add them to their collections with ease.
WhatsApp has been rolling out new features and updates to improve its users' experience. The ‘Keep in Chat' feature and the sticker maker tool are two exciting additions that will make the messaging platform more user-friendly and convenient to use. It is clear that WhatsApp is committed to providing its users with the best possible experience by adding new features and updates regularly.
