LONDON – WhatsApp users will be thrilled to know that the messaging app has announced it is coming up with a new set of features for users in the days to come.
Once again, it was WABetaInfo that broke the news around the world. This time, however, instead of inside information, the website managed to speak directly to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and WhatsApp head Wil Cathcart about the new features.
After chatting with Cathcart, Zuckerberg joined the chat to talk about the new features they intend to launch soon on WhatsApp.
Zuckerberg claims that in his opinion, the most important interaction people have is around private messaging. The Facebook boss announced that they are working on developing other features to keep chat and messages more private.
In the screenshot below, Zuckerberg confirms a disappearing mode will soon be coming to WhatsApp that automatically enables ephemeral messages in new chat threads.
