WhatsApp Download 2022: WhatsApp is one of the most popular instant messaging apps worldwide. The chatting app has been working to bring in new features and recently rolled out an updated version of iOS and Android that included options like creating call links for group calls and emoji reactions for WhatsApp status. Now, the messaging app is coming out with several new updates that include disabling 'view once' messages on desktops, WhatsApp for tablets, communities and increased strength of group participants.
The screenshots shared on the platform revealed that WhatsApp will ask users to share the password created by the users while encrypting their backups. It will also ask to share their encryption key which is basically a 64-digit encryption key. WhatsApp has not released any official date of the launch of this particular feature.
According to WABetaInfo, the Facebook-owned platform might soon let users transfer their chats to a different phone number. WhatsApp's iOS-Android migration tool further reveals that you won’t be able to migrate chat history at any time and it can only be done when you link a new Android phone to your account. Besides that, WhatsApp will also migrate media files to the alternate phone number.
According to WABetaInfo, the messaging platform will display a notification with a message that reads, “Syncing with WhatsApp on another device” which will appear after the WhatsApp chats are migrated to another device. As both the devices will be synced, some chat functions will work on both the devices and other features such as chat actions such as pinning a chat or starring a message will work on both the devices. The features which will not work include deleting chats or deleting a specific message.
As per the report by WABetaInfo, WhatsApp from now on will not allow users to delete chats from linked devices and when a user tries to delete or deletes a chat from the linked devices, it will fail as the messages will not get deleted from other linked devices. Besides that, the messaging platform will not give any option to users to choose if they want to delete the chat from other linked devices. This linked message feature is still under development and will soon be launched.
