First of all, timed with the release of Android O next month, WhatsApp will be updated for this version of Google’s operating system, offering specific features. For example, if we make a video call, we can put the video screen in one of the new pop-up windows.

Other new WhatsApp features will be available for all Android versions. On one hand, we’ll have new icons for choosing the type of text (cursive, bold and strikethrough) and on the other hand, we’ll have shortcuts on the home screen, which we can see if we hold down the app icon on the home screen.

In addition to these changes for Android, WhatsApp for iOS also anticipates updates, such as a feature that will show how much space your archived chats take up and will let you delete several archived chats in one go. Perfect for freeing up space!
