According to reports, WhatsApp is experimenting with a new undo feature for deleted messages. When customers mistakenly pick the ‘Delete for Me’ option instead of ‘Delete for Everyone,’ this new function is expected to come in helpful. It is allegedly still under development and is not yet accessible for Android beta testers. Furthermore, the Meta-owned messaging platform may soon receive a security feature that requires double authentication. A new splash screen for Android 12 is believed to be included in recent beta releases, as well as the ability to share documents up to 2GB in size.
According to WABetaInfo, once a user deletes a message using the ‘Delete for Me’ option, a new pop-up bar appears at the bottom of the screen for a few seconds. The ‘Undo’ option is claimed to be included in this pop-up bar, allowing users to recover lost messages. If that’s what users want, they can use the ‘Delete for Everyone’ option. This new ‘Undo’ option was apparently detected in WhatsApp’s Android beta version 22.214.171.124, although testers are not currently seeing it. The iOS and PC versions of the software may soon get this capability as well.
In related news, WhatsApp may be getting a double verification feature soon. This security feature is said to request users for a second 6-digit number when they try to register the app on a different device. Its purpose is to keep users’ accounts safe from hackers. WhatsApp for Android beta version 126.96.36.199 will now allow users to send files up to 2GB in size, according to a new report. A tiny number of people are thought to have access to it. It should be mentioned that without this upgrade, WhatsApp users may only send documents up to 100MB in size.
Another WhatsApp Android beta update is now available, with the version number 188.8.131.52. It’s reported to be focused towards restoring the app start animation’s splash screen on Android 12, which utilizes the default SplashScreen API. This update is said to turn off the Android 12-generated splash screen, allowing the user to see the old launch animation.
