Other upcoming features on WhatsApp

Voice status updates

WhatsApp is reportedly working on a feature allowing users to post voice notes as status updates. This feature was spotted on the iOS beta of the app by WaBetaInfo. Users can upload text, images, and videos as status updates.

The above report shows that users can tap on the microphone icon at the bottom right corner to record status updates.

Contact cards

WhatsApp is also working on a feature for its Windows app that will allow users to share contact cards from the native desktop app. This feature has been missing for some time now and will make it easier for users to share contacts in the chat.

Edit messages

WhatsApp has been working on an edit option for some time now. An earlier report revealed that the Facebook-owned app has already started testing the feature and may reveal it soon.

The edit message option will allow you to edit messages after you have sent them, allowing you to fix typos and errors in your messages easily.

WhatsApp is not the only company working on introducing an edit button. Twitter has been testing the edit button for some time now, and it is already available to its paid users.
