WhatsApp is loaded with features such as videos, images, doodles, GIFs and stickers that make conversations with our friends and family interesting and fun. While a lot of these features are available on WhatsApp Web, Stickers comes with limited functionality on the company’s web based interface.
To put it simply, while users can share stickers offered natively by WhatsApp using the WhatsApp Web with their family and friends, they cannot share third-party stickers using the company’s web based platform. This means that if you have created special WhatsApp stickers using third party stickers, you can neither see them nor use them on WhatsApp Web.
But soon that might change.
According to a report by WABetaInfo, the blog that tracks developments in WhatsApp, WhatsApp is planning to introduce a new functionality to WhatsApp Web that would allow users to share stickers created using third-party apps on WhatsApp Web allowing users to share seasonal greetings and other messages with their friends and family in a more creative manner.
In addition to this, WhatsApp is also working on adding several new features to its app based platform. According to a separate report by the blog, the social messaging app is planning to add pinned alert for issues feature to its iOS based platform. This feature would notify users whenever there is an issue while downloading a media file. The notification will be pinned to the top of the individual chat window and highlighted in a special colour with the message explaining the issue and the cause.
Apart from this, the popular social messaging app is planning to add quit media edit feature that would allow users to edit media files, such as an image or a doodle, that they recieve in their chats without downloading them on their smartphones. This feature would allow users to edit media files within the app before sharing them with their WhatsApp contact.
However, the most noteworthy feature that the company is working on is the ability to use the same WhatsApp account from multiple devices. This means that WhatsApp users will be able to use the same account from two different devices – say an iPhone and an iPad, even when their iPhone (or their primary device) is turned off.
