WhatsApp Beta gets Private replies, Picture in Picture mode and more

Latest WhatsApp Beta Update Adds Private Replies, PiP Mode, and Shake to Report Features

Reportedly, WhatsApp is planning to introduce Picture-in-Picture mode for video calling.

Possibly the last set of updates for 2017, WhatsApp is now testing a bunch of new features in the beta version for both its app and the web version.

Diving deeper into the features, the new private reply feature does not really qualify as a feature and is more of a functionality add-on, allowing users the option to reply to a group message privately by selecting it.

The allrounder said: "Trevor Bayliss, Andrew Strauss and all the guys who get most of the flak for it, you feel for them". When the match was called a draw late in the day, CA XI had reached 269 for eight from 36.5 overs.

Earlier this month, a feature called "Restricted Groups" was added to the settings which help administrators to restrict group members from sending text messages, photographs, videos, GIFs, documents, or voice messages.

We found today other new hidden Android references that confirms that also group video calls will be supported, and it will be possible to make a group video calls with other 2 participants (so in the group video call there will be 3 participants, including who started it). It will appear as a new icon and will prompt when a user is taking a video call. This feature limits the flexibility in the groups while bringing in discipline in the groups as WhatsApp groups are not only used for entertainment but are used by corporate professionals as well.

The new features will be introduced in the 0.2.7315 version of the app, beta version of which has been submitted to WABetaInfo.

Another feature that is being tested will allow reply option in group chat on long pressing on the reply option where "Reply privately" will pop up. WhatsApp is also hoping to include an element where a client can simply tap on somebody's name to unblock a person.

Shake to report: Using the device's sensors, this feature will open the Contact Us section on the application to report any inconsistencies. It is available on WhatsApp beta version number 2.17.437. According to a report by GizBot, this new feature is available on WhatsApp for iOS and is expected to come to Android soon.

It appears iOS users might have the advantage of group calls soon, continues WABetaInfo. Admins will also get more control over sending particular messages in a group and editing group information as well.
