WhatsApp reportedly began rolling out a beta version of its Android client on Tuesday. There is an undo delete message feature in this version. Users can recover accidentally deleted messages in a chat. A limited number of beta testers will have access to this feature. Meta-owned platform is expected to begin rolling out this feature in the coming weeks. WhatsApp is working on a new privacy feature that will allow users to hide their phone numbers from other members of a sub-community.
In a report by WhatsApp feature tracker WABetaInfo, users will now see a snackbar at the bottom of the screen after deleting a message. Users will be able to recover deleted messages within a few seconds with this new bar.
Meta-owned platform is rolling out WhatsApp beta for Android 188.8.131.52 update to a limited number of beta testers. In the coming weeks, the feature will be rolled out to more users.
According to a recent report, this feature was first seen in WhatsApp’s Android beta version 184.108.40.206. Beta testers were not able to use it then. It is also possible that WhatsApp will bring this feature to its iOS and desktop versions in the future.
WhatsApp is said to be working on a new privacy feature that allows users to share their contact number with certain sub-groups of a community. ‘Phone number sharing’ will be turned off by default. The contact number of a user will automatically be hidden from all members of a specific community’s sub-group once this feature is enabled. There will be the option for users to share their numbers with a sub-group of users. Currently, users on the beta channel are not able to access this feature in WhatsApp for Android beta 220.127.116.11.
