The well-known blog WABetaInfo always keeps you up to date with upcoming features and changes to Messenger WhatsApp (App Store-Link) Ready. This is what happened now because the meta team (formerly Facebook) has released the new beta version 18.104.22.168 for testers.
WABetaInfo Reports, among other things, are a new social aspect first discovered by the group in November this year. The blog states that this feature is “a personal space where group administrators have more control over certain groups on WhatsApp and group administrators can connect with other groups in the community”.
WABetaInfo also shares screenshots associated with an input mask, which can include the name and description of a community “just like normal group chat”. After entering this information, users can “connect up to 10 groups in the community”.
In addition to this new social feature, WhatsApp also plans three more features 9to5Mac Reported. On the one hand, users can select different recipients when sending media in WhatsApp chat. The new area called “Nearby Businesses” is also new: it’s designed to look for stores such as restaurants, supermarkets, and clothing stores. Also the contact page will obviously be edited by WhatsApp. All three functions mentioned are currently under development and, according to 9to5Mac, are currently not available for general beta testing.
