News Synopsis

iOS users can now create avatars with WhatsApp. The most recent iOS version of the Meta-owned messenger app WhatsApp now allows the user to select their avatars and use them as profile pictures and stickers.

Avatar configuration may already be available to certain users on the previous update, but WABetaInfo reports that it is now being made available to even more users.

In order to find out if the functionality is already activated for their account, users should open WhatsApp Settings. Additionally, the messaging service's most recent update added the capability to capture videos hands-free by simply swiping left inside the WhatsApp camera.

The most recent update also gives users the option to temporarily reverse "delete for me." The source also stated that some accounts might start receiving the new feature in the upcoming weeks.

According to reports, WhatsApp is developing a new feature that would let users pin messages inside both chats and groups. According to WABetaInfo, the function is helpful because it would let users pin important messages to the top of the chat.

The app will display a message in the conversation asking the receiver to update to the most recent version offered in the store if a message is pinned and the recipient is using an older version of the application.

According to reports, WhatsApp is also developing a number of new features to improve the user interface and privacy. The Android to iOS transfer feature was introduced by the Meta-owned app last year, and it is now rumored that another transfer feature, which would abolish dependence on Google Drive, is being developed.

Additionally, WhatsApp will soon enable users to report status that contains anything that is against the platform's rules. Additionally, there is something in the works for users who wish to store messages that vanish, and there is good news for those who want to use WhatsApp but are allowed to do so despite the app's censorship by the government.
