WhatsApp does not want you to miss out on the new features it’s rolling out. The company intends to transfer new features directly through the official WhatsApp chatbot in the coming period. This chatbot is similar to features within rival messaging apps Telegram and Signal, where each uses an official channel to update you on new releases.
“chatbot” will tell you what is new when you update
WhatsApp, which publishes detailed blog posts on this subject, but knows well that not everyone sees these articles, has started to show a different infrastructure in the latest Android beta. WhatsApp provides information about security and privacy through this chatbot.
The chatbot will also show people tips and tricks. It will only be one-sided. So the users can not answer it. This official chatbot can be easily blocked when notifications start to bother you. All the messages will be end-to-end encrypted, but that’s unlikely to be a big deal as many people will receive these messages. If you need WhatsApp support, you must contact the company through other means.
A new privacy setting was also recently discovered by WABetaInfo, which was found to be on its way. When this setting is activated, people can turn off their online information from the privacy menu of WhatsApp. It will also be linked to the last seen. The selected setting will also apply to online news.
In this way, some private people or everyone you want will not be able to see your online information. The company introduced this feature in the iOS beta at the first stage andiOS beta at the first stage and has recently expanded the process to the Android beta. In other words, contrary to some claims, the feature will be on both platforms and will most likely be put into general use within 1-2 months.
