Instant messaging platform “WhatsApp” has introduced a new feature that allows users to share statuses (texts, images,…) with contacts through the computer browser version of “WhatsApp Web”.
WhatsApp Web will allow the ability to share texts, photos and video clips as statuses with contacts directly through the browser, if statuses are protected with end-to-end encryption to maintain privacy, as in the mobile phone app. .
This new feature (WhatsApp Beta Web Edition) has been launched in the accounts of users participating in the program, as a first step before rolling it out to all users.
The feature will also allow users who spend a lot of time on computers the ability to share statuses directly from their devices via a browser or later a desktop application, without needing to use a smartphone.
WhatsApp introduced the status feature in 2017, which is currently one of the main features of the app as it allows users to share different types of content with contacts for only 24 hours before it disappears automatically. The platform made the option to share cases limited to mobile phone use and could not be shared from a computer.
The new changes come within the framework of the site's plan to build a cases section, as it is also testing other options, such as sharing cases with higher quality, changing the display of cases in the Updates tab.
