Next WhatsApp Update to Bring Two Major Changes to the Table

With WhatsApp now firmly secure in its status as the single most popular instant messaging app in the world after a brief scare from up and coming services, the platform has been making some changes to further optimize the services it can provide to users. There a couple of new features that are currently in the beta testing phase, and both of them are likely going to level up the user experience on WhatsApp.

The first major update that has been noted for an upcoming version of WhatsApp is largely centered around the desktop version of the messaging service. Users will now have a shortcut that will enable them to send pictures and videos without having to open up their app. This will allow for faster image sharing, although users will still have to contend with the file compression that is a standard part of services like WhatsApp.

Previously, users had the option of selecting a file, but they then had to pick through all the different file types until they found what they were looking for. With all of that having been said and now out of the way, it is important to note that users will now be able to scroll through their gallery, similarly to how they user the smartphone app for WhatsApp.

The second update, as per WBI, that is on the cards for WhatsApp has to do with WhatsApp for business. More specifically, the WhatsApp for Business app will now have a communities section because of the fact that this is the sort of thing that could potentially end up bringing the feature to enterprise grade users.

This is a feature that has been requested for a long time, and it is great that WhatsApp has finally gotten around to it.

Both of these updates appear to indicate that WhatsApp is constantly working behind the scenes to tweak and upgrade the app. While the wider rollout of these updates is not currently confirmed, beta testing seems to indicate that the release is just around the corner with all things having been considered and taken into account.
