Whatsapp has not stopped implementing new functions so far this year, and everything makes us foresee that before the end of 2019 other novelties will arrive to our devices.
Among those features that will soon become reality in the most used instant messaging app in the world is the ‘night mode‘, already present in its beta version. This option will allow the Whatsapp interface to be adapted to a shade of dark grey, as seen in an update of its beta version.
Another feature expected to reach Whatsapp this year are QR codes to add to contacts, a feature already present on other platforms such as Twitter. Specifically, this new feature is a new, easier and faster way to add contacts. The code is scanned with the device’s camera and, once detected, Whatsapp will add this new contact to the address book.
Likewise, the app will offer the option of synchronizing Whatsapp States with Facebook Stories or Instagram when publishing content.
The stickers, present in Whatsapp for a year, will have their animated version before the end of 2019, since months ago it was filtered out that the company was already working on implementing this feature.
The so-called holiday mode, which consists of Whatsapp not showing any notice of those chats that have been archived, will be called Ignore archived chats, according to the image filtered a few months ago.
Finally, another function that will not take long to reach all users of the app is the unlocking by fingerprint, something that could already be done in Whatsapp, but not natively. This new feature is already present in the latest beta versions, although by now it is neither active nor visible.
