WhatsApp will reportedly introduce several new feature to the application in the next update for Android and iOS devices.

If an Internet leak is to believe, Android and iOS WhatsApp users will soon receive an update for the application which offers features that are more than that of the prior expectations.

Call Back

The callback feature will allow users to return a missed call without the need to open up the app. WhatsApp calling feature has not found much utilization among users contradictory to the text service which has taken over text messaging through SMS.

The major reason for voice calls’ failure is the excess data usage during a voice call and lack of voice clarity on slow connections.

WhatsApp surely hopes to turn a few pages and improved voice call feature. A recent update enables users to participate in a group call with a capacity for maximum 16 callers.

The major reason for voice calls’ failure is the excess data usage during a voice call and lack of voice clarity on slow connections.

Record/Send voice mail

This feature is not a lot beneficial for a basic user. WhatsApp always had the feature of sending and receiving audio messages, both recorded instantaneously or memory stored but the voicemail feature comes in use when a user is not available on call.

ZIP file sharing

WhatsApp already supports a lot of formats for file sharing which includes PDF, VCF, DOCS and DOCX but the upcoming update is believed to bring ZIP file sharing support.

This feature will facilitate convenience of sharing large files in a compressed format which means users can share about any file format supported on mobile devices. ZIP file sharing will also reduce data usage.

Video Call

One of the most anticipated features of WhatsApp is the video call support. Since the release of the Facebook Messenger, there have been rumours of WhatsApp being equipped with this feature. We can only hope that Mark Zuckerberg will finally bring this feature to WhatsApp.

A recent update of WhatsApp enabled end-to-end encryption of conversations among users which raised a few eyebrows in India since the move was non-compliant to the regulations administered by the Telecom Authority.
