Three radical changes for WhatsApp that are about to change everything

You may have noticed that WhatsApp is constantly evolving. Over the last 6 months, we’ve seen it introduce many new features such as voice calls, improved privacy settings – we’ve even found out that the service is now free to use for all!

If you thought that we’d seen the last of new features being introduced to WhatsApp in 2016, you are very much mistaken. Here are three awesome new features we can expect to see this year, that will change the way we use WhatsApp forever!


What’s it about?

WhatsApp is finally catching up with the times, and will soon be able to compete with the likes of Skype and co. This feature is set to allow you to turn your camera on during WhatsApp calls, making your conversations much more fun and personal with your friends and family.

Why is this change revolutionary?

What does it mean to you if you can already make videocalls on Facebook Messenger and Skype? Well, although it may sound surprising, millions of users from the digital era were not used to making calls on their phones until WhatsApp introduced it. WhatsApp is a hugely influential application, so video calls could be the next big thing, thanks to the Facebook-owned service.
