Meta-owned instant messaging app, WhatsApp is now rolling out the new feature to undo deleted messages to a few beta testers and the screenshot below shows what it will look like.
Users Can Now Easily Recover Deleted Messages and Not Type the Whole Slab of Texts Again
Once you delete a message after the new update, it will show a small popup that will give you the option to “undo” a deleted message. However, it will only give you a few seconds to recover the deleted messages. This should save you the nuisance of typing up your messages all over again if you accidentally deleted a large slab of text. It is unclear if this feature will let you recover media, voice messages, and documents too.
WhatsApp Users Can Now Also Set Up Avatar for Their Profile Pictures
WhatsApp is also working on bringing a new footer for end-to-end encryption info on WhatsApp Desktop. The app will also let you set up an avatar for your profile photo, similar to Snapchat’s bitmoji. You can customize your avatar however you please and these can also be used for video calls. It will be available on WhatsApp iOS and Desktop as well.
These features are still in beta, so it will be a while before they become available for everyone on the stable version.
In addition to this, WhatsApp is reportedly working on a new ‘phone number sharing’ feature that will allow users to hide their phone numbers from communities. According to WABetaInfo; “The new privacy setting, phone number sharing, is about the ability to share the phone number to a certain sub-group of a community.”
