They suggest that when a person adds his WhatsApp account on another device, he will immediately be notified. This is because the encryption key changes. The report mentioned that this feature is currently under development and will be rolled out in the future. Talking about the Expiring Messages feature, when it is enabled in a specific chat, WhatsApp will show an indicator on the profile picture in the chats list.

Once the feature is live, one will also notice the same indicator in the chat window as well. In case you are unaware, this feature is already present in Telegram with “Self-destructing” name. You can also set Self-destruct time on the app. Besides, WhatsApp no longer supports video statuses over 15 seconds. This is probably to make sure that the bandwidths of Indian telecoms are not stretched.

The company recently announced information online, the company continues to roll out beta updates and behind-the-scenes improvements. Most public beta updates tend to focus on under the hood changes and improvements. However, the developers continue to work on multiple hidden features that are likely to roll out in the coming months.
