As with text messages, WhatsApp is already preparing its next novelty for the most installed chat app in Spain.

 

The chat app owned by Meta has several open fronts, from a new interface that will almost completely change its entire design to the new audio calling function that arrived through beta just two days ago.

In beta 2.23.7.8 of WhatsApp for Android, this novelty appeared for the first time for sending notes that disappear once they have been listened to by the user.
