WhatsApp update: The Meta-owned popular messaging application WhatsApp is likely working on a feature that will add a new camera shortcut for iPhone users on their application. Since this shortcut is now under development, it is still not visible to users because WhatsApp plans to release it in a future update of the app.
According to WABetaInfo, a website that tracks WhatsApp WhatsApp has submitted a new update through the TestFlight beta Programme, bringing the version up to 18.104.22.168. The version marked within WhatsApp Settings is 22.214.171.124 and the TestFlight build is 22.19.0.
A screenshot showed that the camera shortcut is placed within the navigation bar and it will show up for those users that can already create a community in the future. It looks exactly like the one implemented on WhatsApp beta for Android (but since there was a bug, it has temporarily been removed in another update), the report said.
Earlier this month, a report said that WhatsApp is working on a new feature for businesses to let them manage chats from their linked devices in an upcoming subscription service from WhatsApp for businesses. Under a new optional subscription plan called WhatsApp Premium, users will be able to use additional features such as the ability to create a custom business link and link up to 10 devices to their accounts in the future.
In related news, Twitter has also started testing a new way of sharing tweets in India. The platform has started it is rolling out a new WhatsApp sharing button to select Android users in India that will let them share a tweet with their contacts directly via WhatsApp.
The popular micro-blogging platform is offering four options to users as of now = the ability to comment on a tweet, retweet or quote a tweet, like it and share it. The Share Tweet button expands to let users bookmark a tweet, copy its link and share it via other apps that are available on a user’s smartphone.
