WhatsApp is currently testing a new feature which will let users Edit and Recall Sent Messages which will help users who normally send texts by mistake. The implementation of this feature would mean that users can delete a message from the receivers phone if it is not yet read by the receiver.
The deleted function is being tested in the beta version along with the ability to edit send messages that have not been read. Currently there is no confirmation as to when these features will be released to all Beta Version on All Platform including the Desktop app.
WhatsApp is also testing a new feature that could make it a lot easier to coordinate meeting a group of friends along with a unique feature that lets users send friends their moving location so that they can find one another more easily.
The new tracking feature is known as “Called Live Location Tracking” which lets users show their movements to friends within a group chat. They can opt to share their moving position for a limited time of one, two or five minutes. This feature is built on WhatsApp’s popular send your location feature that allows users to share their exact position at a given time.
WhatsApp users will probably have to manually turn it on in Settings, avoiding any privacy fears. This feature is currently being tested in the beta version of the messaging app and could soon be released to all users. However there has been no time frame announced for the release of these features.
We already know that WhatsApp is testing the ability to reply to status messages, as well as shaking you phone within a conversation to contact WhatsApp and report spam. This feature is on the similar lines of Snapchat Stories which is being tested and should be released to all platforms in Beta version sooner than later.
