WhatsApp is working on new features to enhance the user experience on its platform. The Meta-owned chatting application appeared to be testing a new camera interface for Android devices. The Flash shortcut appears to have been relocated, and the Switch Camera button has been redesigned. The company is also testing out features for group admins that allow them to delete messages for everyone.
WhatsApp has been discovered to be testing the new in-app camera interface. According to a report by Wabetainfo, WhatsApp has released the 126.96.36.199 beta update that shows the redesigned in-app camera interface. The new in-app camera will be seen in the future update like we said it is currently under testing.
The shared screenshots clearly show the new change that will be rolled out in a stable update. The Flash and Switch Camera buttons will be redesigned, and you’ll be able to open recent media by tapping the image in the lower-left corner.
There is no information about when the feature will be available to the general public since this feature is under development and is only available to beta testers, but as soon as we learn more we will update you on this.
On the other hand, WhatsApp has been spotted testing the ability for group administrators to delete individual messages for the entire group. Wabetainfo reports that WhatsApp will allow deleting messages for everyone within 7 days and 8 minutes.
Reportedly WhatsApp has released the 188.8.131.52 update, the first beta update for the next year. This update reveals new plans for group message deletion, including the ability to delete incoming messages for everyone if you are a group admin in a future update.
Also when a message has been deleted by group admins, it will be updated indicating that “This was removed by an admin”.
The report stated, “We created a new group and there are two group admins. I’ve deleted the first message sent from “Test WBI”, the other admin deleted mine and the last message in this group chat.”
