Exciting Features Expected from WhatsApp in 2021

Accept it or not, WhatsApp - an American freeware, cross-platform centralized messaging and voice-over-IP service owned by Facebook has made our life easier. Since the time the application has been launched in India messaging, sharing documents, locations and sending money has become a lot simpler. Moreso, it is a blessing in disguise at the time when the whole country is under is facing a pandemic. With the app, we can easily connect with near and dear ones through calls and video calls when people can barely meet each other. Over the year WhatsApp has launched several new features for its users across the globe and this year is no different.

Lets look at the new features which are expected to enhance messaging experience of Whatsapp in the year 2021:

WhatsApp Insurance

This year the messaging app might launch Whatsapp insurance in India. A user will be able to buy health insurance through SBI General Sachet-health insurance cover. Also, they will launch micro pension products for which they have tied up with HDFC Pension Schemes. This feature was launched in the United States in 2020 and it has been doing quite well in the market.

Multi-Device Support

This is the feature that we have been looking for quite some time now. Multi-Device supports a user to log in to a WhatsApp account through multiple devices (maximum four devices) at the same time. Meaning, once the feature gets rolled out you can log in through your iPhone, iPad and desktop simultaneously. Currently, the chat app allows up to two devices- one is on mobile and another on desktop.

WhatsApp Logout

Just like other networking apps, you will be able to log out from WhatsApp also. Earlier there was an option to delete the account, now the 'Delete Account' button will be replaced by 'Logout'. Recently, this feature has been seen on the beta version of the chat app. It will be soon launched for Android as well as iOS

Instagram Reels for WhatsApp

WhatsApp is soon going to add a dedicated tab for Instagram Reels. This feature will allow the user to watch Instagram reel on the messaging app. Instagram Reel, a feature launched after TikTok was banned in India, is a feature of the photo-sharing app which allow users to share a short video. Before this Facebook has included sharing Instagram stories on Facebook directly.

Archive Chats to become Read Later

Till now a user has been archiving chat but now they will be able to move it to read later. The Archive Chat button will become "Read Later". With the launch of this feature, the chat app will not send notifications for the chat which have been moved under-read the later section. The "Read More" button will also come with an edit button which will allow users to customize settings.

Well, these are a few of the features that we expect to be in the market in 2021. These features will surely enlighten users experience and grow the community. There are more features that are rumoured but will have to wait if they get launched or not.
