- WhatsApp’s cover photo feature is said to be similar to Facebook
The Meta-owned instant messaging application WhatsApp is reportedly planning to add a new Facebook-like cover image. The feature has recently been spotted by WhatsApp development tracker WABetaInfo. The company is planning to introduce a camera button in users’ Business Settings. In this, users can select a photo or take a new one as a cover photo.
When any other user from the contact list will visit your business profile, they will be able to see your newly-set cover photo along with the profile photo and status; depending on your privacy settings. However, this feature will only be limited to the WhatsApp Business accounts it will not be possible for standard user accounts. The report says that the feature is enabled for beta testers, and there will be some changes in your business profile settings.
WhatsApp is adding a number of features to the app to remain competitive against other instant messaging apps and services Thanks to leaks, we have a glimpse of some of the features WhatsApp is set to bring to the app in the future.
WhatsApp is also adding the ability to create new Communities. Communities will reportedly grant admins the ability to invite new users via a Community Invite Link and then start messaging other members. Communities will also allow admins to create groups within groups. It seems that a subtle design change will allow users to distinguish Communities from regular group chats. This feature will come to both Android and iOS users later.
WhatsApp is adding a quick replies shortcut for WhatsApp Business. The WhatsApp Business app will soon add an extra option that will let users select one of a few preset quick replies to send to customers. To use quick replies, WhatsApp Business users will be able to type “/” in the chat and select a preset message. The feature will come to beta users on both iOS and Android, and could eventually make its way to stable versions.
