Finally, Whatsapp on Android gets a feature that everyone was yearning for. With the Whatsapp update v2.19.357, we get the option to put a WhatsApp call on wait. Not only that, but this update also comes new privacy settings for more prominent encryption on one’s privacy on the app.
In the Call waiting feature, you can accept an incoming WhatsApp call even if you’re currently on a call with someone else. It is a pretty simple but vital feature for ongoing calls, and it was surprising that till today, there was no option for that on WhatsApp for Android.
The call on wait feature was already available on iOS but not on Android until some time. Now, the update with this feature and much more improved privacy settings is being rolled out massively for the audience.
For the Privacy settings, in brief, there is now an option by which you can control who can add you to a WhatsApp group and who can’t. Now, that’s something which will be very much appreciated by the users as many of us are irritated when we get joined in a random group that you don’t want to be a part of. For using this feature, just update your WhatsApp app and then go to Settings > Accounts > Privacy > Groups
The v2.19.357 update is not only loaded with some cool new features but some vital fixes too. Recently, there had been a bug in WhatsApp for some people which caused battery drains on their Android smartphones, but now with this update, that bug has also been fixed for everyone.
The Facebook-owned app has been continuously releasing many updates to their app for the betterment and satisfaction of their users. From the start, WhatsApp’s top priority was the privacy of their users, as all of your chats on WhatsApp have an end to end encryption.
Not that long ago, Whatsapp just released an update that enabled the users to lock their app with a Biometric lock, which only boosted the privacy of their users. After this update, there are rumors that the upcoming updates will have the ability to hide the muted status updates, dark mode, and also self-destructing messages.
