Instagram Reels

WhatsApp is looking to integrate Instagram Reels on the messaging app.

According to WhatsApp watchers WABetaInfo, the chatting platform could in early 2022 feature Instagram Reels.

It’s thought that Reels would have a dedicated space on the WhatsApp app.

This could be part of Meta’s plan to merge all the big social networking apps that it owns.

WhatsApp logout

WABetaInfo, mentioned in the foregoing, has previously claimed that WhatsApp is working on a logout feature.

This feature would be in keeping with the multi-device update recently released. The feature could allow users logout on one device but remain logged in on another.

It was spotted being tested in the beta version of WhatsApp.

Unlimited ‘delete for everyone’

One common complaint about WhatsApp is that you only get a certain amount of time to delete a message in a chat for everyone.

After 68 minutes and 16 seconds, your message will be there forever and you can only delete it for yourself.

This could be set to change in the future though. According to 91 mobiles, WhatsApp has tested leaving off a time limit for this feature and making it unlimited.

Last seen

You can currently hide the time you were last seen on WhatsApp but you can’t hide it from specific contacts.

The company is said to be changing this so when you go to change your “Last Seen” settings you’ll see an option for “My Contacts Except”.

As with all rumours and features tested in beta, we can’t be sure any of these exciting features will be rolled out to the masses until we get official word from WhatsApp.
