As we reported earlier, WhatsApp Web/Desktop updated with two hidden features. Now, these two features are coming to the beta version of Windows Phone.
The latest update version is 2.17.342.0, which brings hidden features to the beta version.
In terms of changes, the latest update brings an improved new design for calls, PRIVATE REPLY where a new option called “Reply privately”: when selected, you can reply to a group message with a private reply.
A new feature we want to talk here is changes to the way we make voice and video calls on WhatsApp.
WhatsApp already brought the material design changes to the WhatsApp app on Windows Phone platform. But it seems the company is working on a new feature that will let you easily switch between voice and video calls. There will be a new button on the bottom right side which will let you switch to video calls without ending the going call. The company is giving recipient freedom to accept or decline the call.
Note: this feature isn’t currently available because it is under development.
