[February 2017] Update : WhatsApp has launched the “Encrypted Snapchat like Feature” known as WhatsApp Status for the masses.
WhatsApp since acquired by Facebook has seen drastic changes and improvements. In this post I will show all the new upcoming features in WhatsApp and how you can Unlock these features. Please note that these features are not accessible to the “Beta Users” aswell. This technique will allow you to unlock any new features which are currently not even planned (Unlock for Life)
WhatsApp Status Feature
WhatsApp Status is a completely different and new way of activating or putting the status on WhatsApp. It is something like SnapChat where users can input their photos and videos (Live) and share with others.You can set the privacy of how you want to keep your status. You can either set a pic or video as a status for your friends to see or even send it individually.
WhatsApp Live Location Feature
WhatsApp Live Location Feature enables you to share your live location in a group , all your friends can see your location live , it’s an interesting update and can come very handy. Facebook stopped showing exact location of nearby friends because they planned to roll out Live Location in WhatsApp.
WhatsApp New User Interface
With the start of various of new features WhatsApp had to change its UI , now there is no Contact Tab rather there is a “Status” tab in the center along with Chats and Calls Tabs on its side. and if you swipe full left your camera will be activated where you can quickly take a pic and set it as a status or send to any of your contact. New UI is shown in the demo video below.
