Whatsapp New Feature Keep in Chat
Mark Zuckerberg announced a new WhatsApp feature called “Keep in Chat”. Users will be able to save important conversations in a chat that has disappearing messages enabled. Conversations can be kept private using disappearing messages because communications disappear after a particular period of time. However, there are situations when users want to keep specific conversations, such as recordings or important data.
The “Keep in Chat” function will allow users to save messages for later use. WhatsApp appears that once you’ve sent a message, it should be up to you whether or not others in the chat can save it for later.
To enable this feature, the sender will be notified when someone keeps their message and will have the option to reject the decision. If the sender chooses that their communication cannot be kept by others, that decision is final, and the message will be removed after the timer expired.
Messages saved on WhatsApp will be labeled with a bookmark icon, and users may find them in the Kept Messages folder, organized by chat.
“We hope people enjoy this new update and have the ability to keep the messages they need,” Zuckerberg said in a statement. “This will be rolled out worldwide over the next few weeks.”
This new functionality is likely to be useful for WhatsApp users who wish to keep their chats private yet keep important information available.
New option for storing media in forwarded media
Additionally, WhatsApp is developing a new feature that will allow users to add a description to sent media files. According to WABetaInfo, the messaging platform will allow users to add a new description of their choice to send photographs, videos, GIFs, and documents.
