News is that WhatsApp is working on various new features like music sharing, mentions, public group links and large emoji. The features are available on iOS’s newest beta version. WhatsApp will soon have the ability to share music that is stored locally on a phone. WhatsApp will also have an option allowing users share songs from Apple Music too. They’ll even get album art previews and a music icon to play the song. Group admins will simply need to share a link for users to join the group and will also be able to withdraw the link to close the chat.
With mentions, users can tag others in a chat message, like in Twitter. As for larger icons, they’re an attempt to make users express themselves better and are a lighter alternative to using stickers. Most of upcoming new WhatsApp Feature are already in Telegram.
