Do you love WhatsApp stickers? Wait for the next WhatsApp update! In the latest beta version of WhatsApp, some new features have emerged that will be released to all users in the future, including the sticker sets mentioned above.

In the current beta version of WhatsApp, new features have emerged that we have already been able to analyze on the site WABetaInfo.com. WhatsApp has officially introduced the new features on its blog.

1. WhatsApp receives animated stickers

For some time now, WhatsApp users have been able to easily send photos in chats. However, the stickers have not been animated so far. WhatsApp will introduce new sets of stickers in the coming weeks that will include animated images.

2. QR codes

Until now, adding a WhatsApp contact has always involved saving the contact’s phone number. WhatsApp finally introduces QR codes that allow a contact to be scanned quickly. For this, WhatsApp presents a new tab in the menu, which displays its own QR code or allows you to scan QR codes. To scan other QR codes, WhatsApp must have access to the camera.

3. WhatsApp Web receives a dark mode

The feature should have been received by most users by now. WhatsApp Web gets the dark mode that has been available for WhatsApp and iOS and Android for some time. Therefore, the desktop application will finally have a faded appearance to match the application.

4. Changes to group calls

After WhatsApp increased the number of video call participants to eight, the Facebook subsidiary now improves the visualization of group calls. In the future, it will be possible to touch and hold a chat partner in video chats to view them in full screen. In addition, group conversations with up to eight people are given a new icon to start a group call with one click.

Changes will come soon

As mentioned above, the dark mode should already be available on the WhatsApp web. Users of the application in the web version will find the appropriate configuration in «Settings». WhatsApp plans to launch other features «in the coming weeks» for Android and iOS, such as the Messenger it published on its blog in early July.
