WhatsApp which is owned by Meta, is rolling out a new feature for Android beta that lets users enable the new groups while forwarding messages. According to WABetaInfo, beta users will notice a ‘create group’ icon within the forwarding page, allowing them to instantly form a group.
After selecting that option, users will be able to choose which people to add to the new group. The message will be immediately forwarded to the group when it is created. Users can test if the new feature is accessible for their accounts by forwarding a message. The new function will save consumers time.
According to various sources, the option to form a new group when forwarding messages is presently accessible to select beta testers who install the most recent WhatsApp beta for Android update, and it is likely to roll out to additional users in the upcoming days.
It was revealed earlier this month that the messaging platform was working on an animated avatar feature for Android beta to assist increase user engagement. The animated avatars will most likely give stickers more life and personality, allowing for a more expressive communication experience.
Meanwhile, it was reported in June that the Meta-owned platform was releasing an Android beta feature that allowed users to share high-quality videos. While this function maintains video dimensions, minimal compression is still done to the video, making it impossible to transfer films to their original quality.
You should note that the default choice for all videos is ‘Standard quality,’ users must pick the high-quality option every time they wish to share a video with higher quality.
