Whatsapp is steadily introducing new features to its messaging app. Today Whatsapp Tagging alias Whatsapp Mentions added for the Whatsapp Android users.
Whatsapp Tagging – How it works?
While you are chatting in a Whatsapp group, you can tag any of the group members by typing @ in the compose box. When you typed @ symbol, immediately all the contacts in that particular Whatsapp group appears on the screen, and you need to select one that you want to tag in the conversation you are typing.
We can call it as Whatsapp Mentions in the Twitter style, or Whatsapp Tagging in the Facebook style terminology.
Whatsapp GIF Support also partially arrived for iOS users. Now iOS users can view GIF images directly in Whatsapp client, but as of now, they can’t send animated GIFs to their contacts.
Whatsapp 2 Factor Authentication
Whatsapp 2 Factor Authentication is also on its way to secure Whatsapp accounts. It adds a security layer to the client. To use this feature, you must first enable PIN or password, or fingerprint lock to the phone they are using.
A few days back I already wrote on Whatsapp Video calls. The feature is also coming very soon. Similar to Facebook Messenger Bots Whatsapp also planning to introduce Bot support for Whatsapp.
