In the next versions of WhatsApp we will see a new chat in which we will receive the news and important announcements. In this way they can easily notify us of WhatsApp when there are news or changes.
This functionality, already present in other competing instant messaging apps, such as Telegram, will now reach WhatsApp users. At the moment it has already been seen in the beta 188.8.131.52 for iOS, as well as in WhatsApp for Windows Phone.
Obviously this functionality is deactivated by default at the moment, but soon we will see it in the final version of the app for all mobile operating systems.
In this way WhatsApp can send us through a chat or conversation all the news about the service, as well asalerts and other types of messages that you consider important.
To increase security, it has been confirmed that said chat will carry a signal that verifies the identity of the sender That is, it will be distinguishable from the rest so that we know that it is official and all its content is true. If not, we could fall into false conversations with malicious links, for example.
This is a very interesting novelty that will allow us to keep abreast of WhatsApp updates and changes. Regarding the beta version, we do not know if it will also have said chat with the list of beta changes.
We will have to wait for the next versions of WhatsApp, where we definitely hope to see how a new conversation or chat appears, something different, where We will see the news and announcements of WhatsApp.
