WhatsApp is still innovating
A very exciting promise on paper (less social oppression, more freedom), which will be followed by two other very important developments. Where the leaders of Instagram do not really listen to their users and do anything with the app in order to look more and more like TikTok, even if it means losing their identity, those of WhatsApp seem, on the contrary, very close to Internet users. .
Also, according to information from The Verge, the app should very soon launch a new option which will be inspired by the Irish Goodbye aka leaving a party without telling anyone. Translation ? We can FINALLY leave groups discreetly, without the other members receiving a notification about it. Enough to put an end to the awkward moments with the dorks who always want to know the reason for our departure and no longer receive conversations that we don't care about. Hallelujah.
An anti-harassment measure
Another very important novelty that should relieve more than one person, the engineers are currently working on an way to prevent users from taking screenshots of “View Once” messages, those photos or videos that automatically disappear after being viewed. The technology is still in the testing phase at the moment, but executives are eager to launch it in order to avoid any risk of harassment and revenge-porn, but also to see information that is supposed to be private shared with more people.
Like what, despite the approach of the end of the world, it is still possible to have some good news in 2022.
