Hey WhatsApp Intends to add another novelty to the messaging platform. The company is studying a new tool to protect the accounts of its users. The mechanism will be available in the platform settings. Thus, upon accessing the “Account” and “Privacy” options, the user will get a new option called “way to disappear”.
As of now, many details about the new feature have not been released. However, it was reported that the conversation would be temporary, preventing Messenger from manually changing the settings in the chat information. The novelty should be released for Android and iOS systems next week.
With this WhatsApp Is announcing several possible releases, one of which refers to the possibility of making backup copies with access to Google Drive using a password.
According to the website WABetaInfo disclosures, there are three steps to create a password for a backup saved in Google Drive. This password must be at least eight characters long, while the backup is “end-to-end encrypted”.
The company is always looking for ways to make all resources available for the two most commonly used operating systems, Android and iOS. However, WhatsApp does not know when the backup function will be available for all messengers.
Access to whatsapp web will be free
Hey WhatsApp Provides an account accessibility function through a computer, tablet, or notebook. Access is achieved by reading a QR code that relies on the smartphone’s continuous connection to the Internet, in addition to being close to the device.
However, competitive telegram has revamped the feature by allowing the user to access the account in the web version without having to log in to the mobile phone.
According to the specialized website WABeta Info, the new WhatsApp service guaranteeing its “freedom” from cell phones is in the testing phase for Android and iOS, which could fix criticisms from many users of the instant messaging platform.
Currently, only the beta version 188.8.131.52 of the application for the Apple operating system allows the user to use a web account without connecting the mobile device to the Internet.
In addition, the site clarifies that not all tasks are available, however, they must be followed by the company over time or updates. In this sense, an example can be given of the “delete for all” function, which is the most awaited and used in recent times.
Another advantage related to the new web version is the browsing speed. In addition, business accounts can also be accessed by computer without a cell phone being connected to the Internet.
Finally, the launch of the new version of WhatsApp Web has not been released yet, given that the system is still in the final stages of development.
