WhatsApp’s New Update Offers 3 Cool New Functions
iPhone users can rejoice as the latest WhatsApp update has introduced a range of cool features.
Among the changes made is the feature which now allows you to send up to 30 videos or images at one time. The update has also overhauled the Storage Usage screen, which is now a lot more useful and even offers the ability to queue your messages. This has been possible on Android devices for a while now. The newest version of WhatsApp (2.17.1), is accessible by all iPhone users who have an iOS version of 7 or above. Those with a low battery should plug in and definitely connect to a Wi-Fi to download this update as it is of 91.2MB in all. Here’s what it offers
Queue messages without internet
The latest update also offers the option to queue messages to send at a later time. This is especially useful when you are in an area where network connectivity is poor. Simply send a message to an individual or a group even if your network is not available, and when you reconnect, your message will be automatically sent! This is another feature that Android users have been using for a while, yet it’s only coming to iOS now.
Improved Storage Usage
The WhatsApp Storage Usage screen is a useful function which allows you to view which of the users is sending the most content and taking up space. Through this tool, you can easily delete content from a chat to make more space for storage.
While previously this tool only allowed you to see which group was hoarding maximum space, it now allows you to delete message without leaving the Storage Usage screen. In addition to this, WhatsApp even allows users to decide what types of messages they would like to delete, whether it is a video, image, text, voice message or GIF.
Another feature that WhatsApp is currently working on is an ability to retract or even edit sent messages. This will surely bring a lot of relief to those who find themselves consistently sending messages to wrong people. This feature which is available on the beta version of WhatsApp is automatically disabled and must be enabled manually for it to function.
