(CTN News) – WhatsApp has brought forth a range of notable functionalities exclusively for iPhone users. These include the ability to pin messages, a connection health check for video calls, and an option to view voice messages only once.
WhatsApp Audio messages with a single viewing option.
The inclusion of the WhatsApp ‘View Once‘ feature for audio messages enhances privacy measures. By enabling this option, the recipient is unable to share, forward, copy, save, or record the audio message.
Consequently, the content of the communication remains exclusive and can only be played back once.
Rewritten: Pinning messages
Message pinning is a feature that is accessible in both chats and groups, enabling users to determine how long specific messages remain visible.
This feature provides users with the flexibility to select a visibility duration of either 24 hours, 7 days, or 30 days, allowing them to customize their conversations according to their preferences.
It is worth noting that users always have the option to dismiss a pinned message whenever they desire, providing them with dynamic control over their messaging experience.
Connection status verification
Another WhatsApp valuable feature that has been added is the inclusion of a connection health check during video calls. By simply long-pressing their tile while on a video call, users can now receive real-time feedback on the quality of their connection, guaranteeing a seamless and uninterrupted experience.
The initial release of these updates has already begun for iPhone users in India, and a wider rollout is anticipated in the upcoming weeks.
Users are advised to regularly update their WhatsApp application from the App Store to access these newest features and enhancements.
