WASHINGTON, Dec 26 (QNA) – Instant messaging platform (WhatsApp) has introduced a new feature that allows users to share statuses with contacts via the computer browser version (WhatsApp Web).
This new feature (WhatsApp Experimental Web Version) has been spotted in the accounts of users participating in the program, indicating that it will soon be rolled out to all users, as well as available on the desktop app on Windows and Mac computers.
As in the mobile phone app, WhatsApp Web makes it possible to share texts, photos and videos as statuses with contacts directly through the browser, and statuses are protected by end-to-end encryption to maintain privacy.
This feature is useful for users who spend a lot of time on computers, as they can share cases directly from their devices through a browser or later a desktop application without using a smartphone.
WhatsApp introduced the status feature in 2017 and it is currently considered 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. Can't share cases from mobile phones and computer to share statuses limited to app only.
These new changes come within the framework of the platform's plan to build the Cases section, as it is testing options for sharing cases with higher quality, changing the display of cases in the Updates tab, and other options.
