WhatsApp working on New text editor, Expiring groups
WhatsApp is testing a new feature called “Expiring Groups” in their iOS 126.96.36.199 update. This allows users to set an expiration date on their groups, and when the date is reached, they will be prompted to clean up the group.
Users have the option to choose from various expiration options such as one day, one week, or a custom date, and they can also remove an expiration that was previously set if they change their mind.
This feature is expected to provide a good solution to cluttered and irrelevant groups over time and also provides users with a good storage tool to save space by managing their groups.
New text editor
With the WhatsApp beta for iOS 188.8.131.52 update, the firm is working on a new text editor for the app. The new text editor will bring a different experience to users by offering new fonts and tools to improve the drawing editor, which is still in development on WhatsApp for Android.
Fonts: Users will be able to easily switch between different fonts by tapping one of the font options shown above the keyboard. New fonts like Calistoga, Courier Prime, Damion, Exo 2, and Morning Breeze will be available in the future.
Alignment: Text alignment can be changed to the left, center, or right, giving users more control over formatting the text within images, videos, and GIFs.
Background Color: Users will be able to change the text background color, making it easier to differentiate important text from the rest.
At this point in time, the availability of Expiring groups and New text editor is unknown, as they are still under development and will be released in a future update of the app.
