WhatsApp, a Meta-owned social networking service is introducing new updates to the app. App- language settings are now available to a few Android users. WhatsApp beta for Android 188.8.131.52 is enabling users to change the app language within the WhatsApp setting, as reported by WaBetaInfo. WaBetaInfo is the platform that looks out for new and upcoming updates on WhatsApp.
The report says, “WhatsApp is releasing the ability to change the app language from WhatsApp Settings and the welcome screen is available to some beta testers and, as always, more activation is planned over the coming weeks”. The report adds that since there is a redesigned welcome screen, this update will allow users to change the app language every time they reinstall WhatsApp.
WhatsApp has also released a new beta update for Apple devices. The iOS 184.108.40.206 beta update offers a new group chat layout. As per the WaBetaInfo report, the new layout changes the ‘forum-like discussion layout’ in WhatsApp group chats.
Presently, WhatsApp users are not able to see the profile pictures of other members in the group chats. Nonetheless, WhatsApp messenger will let the users see profile pictures of the members. The conversation will continue in a “forum-like” layout, with the new update.
Telegram, Skype, and Slack also offer the same feature as other social messaging apps. Once spread out to WhatsApp, it will allow group members to notice who has sent a message in the group by looking at their profile picture. The update will be helpful when you are not acquainted with other members of the big group you are added to.
“This feature is under development so we don’t know when WhatsApp is going to release the changes to people,” the report says.
