WhatsApp offers has come for iOS users this time. Under these features, iPhone users can now see larger media previews and have control over the disappearing messages feature in groups. Earlier, the feature only appeared on the beta version of the messaging application, but now WhatsApp has officially released them.
However, the feature is only available for iOS users, Android users might get these feature soon. Both features are available for iOS WhatsApp user with the latest 2.21.71 version. The update is easily available on Apple’s App Store. If the update is not visible, you might get it in the coming days.
A Quick Introduction to Two Major Features Launched for iOS Users
Feature 1 – Users using the 2.21.71 iPhone version can now view larger media. In this feature, you don’t need to see the full video or image by clicking on it. The video or picture you share or receive through WhatsApp will not appear in a small square box. Instead, you view the media in its original size.
Feature 2 – In addition to the above, iOS users now get the ability to allow settings for disappearing messages in a group. Earlier, only the group administrator was allowed to make such changes of disappearing messages, whether to disable them or not. But with the launch of this new feature, each group member has the accessibility to change the settings of disappearing messages.
However, even after the update, the group administrator still holds the power to whether he wants participants to make changes in group settings or not. Administrators can only set the parameters by modifying “Edit group information”. After this, the group administrator will give you permission to change group settings or deny the request.
The disappearing messages feature was launched last year itself, in which the messages remain in the chatbox for a specific time and automatically gets disappeared after seven days. However, the user is required to enable the settings first in order to use the feature.
