Mute Video

The new WhatsApp “mute video” update is available in version beta, gives users the possibility to mute videos before sending them to contact! The toggle is available in the section where you usually edit the video.

The feature is currently rolling out to beta testers before the normal users. If you are a beta tester, kindly update your WhatsApp messenger for the new update to be effective.

Mention Badge

The new feature is pretty simple: when a WhatsApp user receives a mention in a group chat, a new badge would be added in the group cell.

However, the feature is under development, and it will be available in a future update.

New Sticker Pack

Moreover, WhatsApp has also released a new animated sticker pack called “Taters n tots”. It is available for previous versions as well.

However, a few weeks ago, WhatsApp announced that it has launched its official account, available on your STATUS within the WhatsApp messaging platform, which functions similarly to Instagram’s stories and comprises time-limited updates shared with contacts.
