Multi device support
To start with, we expect to see the long time rumoured multi device support feature launch next year. In my opinion, WhatsApp should have introduced this feature this year itself. With this feature, users will be able to use their WhatsApp account on more than one device at a time. This is going to help a lot in a work from home scenario where we use more than one device to work.
Voice and video calls on WhatsApp web
Another awaiting feature that we expect WhatsApp to announce next year is video and voice calls for WhatsApp Web. This is going to help users a lot to have calls with friends and family members using their laptop or work device. Currently, for calls one needs to switch to their mobile phone. In 2020, WhatsApp extended the participants limit for both group video as well as voice calls on app.
Ability to select and paste multiple images/videos on WhatsApp
A recent report coming from WABetaInfo suggests that WhatsApp could very soon introduce the Paste Multiple items feature for iPhone users. And then the feature could roll out for Android users out there. The feature will basically allow users to paste multiple images and videos in WhatsApp. It will let users select multiple images from the Photos gallery, then tap on “Export” followed by the “Copy” option. Users will then need to paste the content in the chat box.
Improvements to stickers
WhatsApp has introduced new updates to stickers almost every few months this year. The upcoming year is also going to be the same. In other words, WhatsApp will bring new interesting updates and enhancements to stickers. The updates to stickers should first come to iPhone users, followed by Android.
Well, these are just a few features that we expect WhatsApp to introduce for users next year. There should be more coming up in the days to come with the aim to enhance the overall user experience on the platform.
