Whatsapp is preparing to launch its new updates next September.
Almost a year after the famous ‘stickers’ appeared, the instant messaging app will include dark mode, a change that has been working for months and will finally see the light. Although according to WABetainfo this function will only reach mobile phones with iOS 13, at least for the moment, the most likely is that later will also reach the terminals with Android operating system, but it will not be for the moment. This function has the advantage of saving energy and taking care of the sight in dark environments and has already reached other applications such as Twitter, Telegram or Youtube.
Another novelty Whatsapp will present is fingerprint blocking, which is already being used by its competitor Telegram. This function will allow us to verify the user’s identity when they want to access the platform to prevent someone else from reading our conversations without permission.
These are the most important updates, but not the only ones. The company is working on a new model of animated stickers that will improve the static ones implemented last October to make the app a more dynamic service. It will also be possible to share contacts through QR codes and Whatsapp status on Facebook. The multiplatform option aloows the user to open his account on several mobile devices simultaneously. Until now, in order to use the application from the tablet it is necessary to uninstall it from the mobile, but from September it will be possible to use it at the same time in both devices.
