As per the screenshot below, WhatsApp downloads your messages to a new device using the same splash screen that is displayed on web and desktop applications.

According to this report, you don’t need to keep your primary phone connected to the web, the app downloads everything directly from its server, keeping messages encrypted as it syncs your inbox.

Unfortunately, WABetaInfo was unable to confirm whether this was designed for Smartphones or whether the company would limit it to working on tablets. While there is no evidence that WhatsApp will not make calls for this update, the company may still want to count its users to keep it limited.

The idea of ​​payments included in the messaging app used by everyone was promising and could establish WhatsApp in the payment platform. However, the Facebook messaging app hosted the party late. Google Pay and PhonePe already dominate India’s UPI market, leaving little space for newcomers, even smart ones like WhatsApp.

With these new stickers, WhatsApp is trying to entice Indian users with its payment service for utility charges linked to Indian culture, be it a shagun of lifafa or earning money from your relatives as aashirwaad when they visit you. In any case, these stickers should still be fun to use or not to use WhatsApp Pay.

While this feature has remained unchanged over the years, WhatsApp is finally giving us a fix for the latest update.

According to WABetainfo, WhatsApp is exploring a new redesign of picture-in-picture mode adding a new control bar to the video player. The control bar appears at the bottom of the video and includes controls such as the pause/restart button, full-screen button, and lock button.
