New WhatsApp Android Beta update carries plan to make payments with Novi

WhatsApp

Just recently, WhatsApp has released a new beta update through the Google Play store. The latest update carries news about future plans to make payments with Novi, which is a free digital wallet that can send and receive funds securely and instantly.

In addition to this, the update also hints about the arrival of  Novi wallets (Novi payments) in WhatsApp. However, this is not surprising for us, as in the past, Facebook has expressed its willingness to include Novi in a series of Facebook applications and services, such as WhatsApp.

To be mentioned, this new beta update can be identified by version number 2.21.22.17. Currently, this update is under development. It means that beta testers have no way to use it right now because it’s not available to the general public.

While seeing that Novi prioritizes the privacy of user information and encrypts all financial data. Also, this model is totally compatible with the principles of WhatsApp.

Thus, this model is fully compatible with the principles of WhatsApp. Now, we ensure instant exchange with friends and family in a new and secure way.

Unfortunately, this is a simple implementation of the code on WhatsApp from the Novi framework and the service cannot be used because it is not open to the public. It means that with this update, WhatsApp is testing how to integrate Novi into the WhatsApp application.

It should also be said that such work takes a lot of time because when this implementation is ready, there are many rules that need to be approved.

WhatsApp to extend QR-based chat transfer feature for old Android, iOS phones

WhatsApp Chat History transfer feature

WhatsApp is simplifying the process of transferring chat history from one phone to another through a new feature. The fresh beta (2.24.13.6) update of WhatsApp introduces a new way for a seamless transfer of conversations from an old phone to a new one, without the need for Google Drive backups.

With Beta 2.23.9.19, WhatsApp brought a QR code-based system that allows users to move their chat history directly between Android devices. The beta new update suggests the possibility of extending this feature to allow cross-platform chat history transfers, potentially including iOS devices.

Presently, WhatsApp supports chat history transfers between iOS and Android, but it’s limited to newer Android versions and requires a physical cable. The new update aims to eliminate these restrictions to offer a universal solution for all users. This new feature would be a significant improvement over the current chat transferring method.

The details of how this new universal transfer feature will work are not yet clear, as it is still under development. Through this, WhatsApp aims to provide a more user-friendly and universally applicable migration solution.

WhatsApp Chat History transfer feature

WhatsApp is releasing a new beta update with version 2.24.13.3, which brings a new feature that allows users to pin their most important channels to the top of their channel list.

The new feature is currently available to a limited number of beta testers. It makes it easier for users to keep track of their top two preferred channels.

Previously, users had to scroll through all their channels to find the ones they visited usually. The new pinning feature of WhatsApp simplifies this by letting users select up to two channels to pin at the top of their list. This feature is saving time and improving overall app navigation.

To pin a channel, users simply choose the channel and use the pin option in the app’s top bar. Once pinned, the channel will remain at the top of the list for easy access.

Moreover, the update also includes the ability to perform actions on multiple channels at once, such as muting or marking them as read. The new feature is expected to be rolled out to more beta testers soon.
