WhatsApp is working on a new feature in the form of a tab for the community called Community in the instant messaging application.
The WABetaInfo page, quoted on Saturday, saw the Community tab in the WhatsApp application beta version 18.104.22.168 for Android.
Based on their findings, this Community tab is on the far left, replacing the tab for the camera. The Community Home will contain a list of the communities the user is following.
The community in the WhatsApp application contains a number of groups. WhatsApp group admins, when this feature comes, will be able to add chat groups to the Community.
In addition to the Community tab, WhatsApp is also working on a new feature for recording voice messages, found in the Android 22.214.171.124 beta version of the app.
WhatsApp designed a pause button, not just stop, to record voice messages. The pause button serves to pause while recording a voice message, after which the user can continue recording again.
The pause voice recording feature is already on the desktop and iOS versions of WhatsApp, however, it’s not on Android yet.
These new features are still under development, may be released when WhatsApp updates the instant messaging app. (Ant/OL-12)
