New WhatsApp features set for Apple’s iOS


Apple’s iOS operating system set to launch new WhatsApp features which include the addition of Contacts shortcuts to the iOS Share Sheet, Voice Over improvements, bubble colour changes, and other fixes.

WABetaInfo report that all these features were tested and have appeared on WhatsApp through Apple’s TestFlight beta programme. Apple users are still using backward features of original WhatsApp and they can only change to WhatsApp Business which have almost the same features like WhatsApp Messenger.


The addition of Contacts shortcuts to the iOS Share Sheet, it’s one of the most features that Apple users would like and it increases interaction in the sense that one would just point on the screen without searching the application from the supported applications. This features will also allow users to instantly share the media to the favourites WhatsApp contacts and groups since they will appear above the chat list.

The betterment to VoiceOver will allow users enjoying WhatsApp and it will be more effective when users archive and unarchive a chat, the activity will be added on a different section and the user can undo the action at any time. Additionally, there is also general bug fixes, which are very important for the WhatsApp operating system, they help the system detect certain activities.

WhatsApp has changed the old green bubble colour with an alternative shade thus the new feature being improved for its dark mode. Credibly these new features came as Facebook is planning to integrate WhatsApp and Messenger messaging platforms, thereby users on both apps will communicate with each other seamlessly.

Although Apple’s iOS operating system is trying to upgrade and improve WhatsApp features for its users, the WABetaInfo reported that these new features are not yet available for users of the standard application.
