WhatsApp continues to improve its service to meet the needs of its users and take advantage of its biggest rival Telegram, who some days ago introduced video messaging and payments via Bot. WABetaInfo revealed on Twitter that the messaging app worked on photo sharing by introducing a new shots selection system that was already available through the beta of the Android service.
Up to now, to share a photo, you have to click on the camera icon to access a grid where shots are organized in chronological order. The next version of the chat will allow you to open the entire gallery with a simple swipe up. This way, the user will have a complete view of the contents saved in the smartphone roll and will easily find what he was looking for. Along with this novelty, it will also be possible to mark some of the most important chats and make them more visible than the others. The renewed photo sharing system was initially tested on Android, but will also be available later on iOS. The app would also be testing a function to block the display of messages sent by mistake, but there is no trace of this novelty in the current beta.
Recently WhatsApp has faced several issues. In addition to a few hours of blackout and the 110 million euros fine received by Agcm for sharing data with Facebook, the messaging app has become a victim of a series of scams for its users. Some of them have received a notification that he warned them that if they had not paid the contract renewal, the service would be suspended. Actually there is nothing true as WhatsApp is totally free.
