Since some weeks we have been advancing some of the changes that we will see next year in the instant messaging application that reigns in all the world: we talk about WhatsApp and the new developments that will bring in 2020.As we already know, starting from next month of February, WhatsApp will no longer work on certain mobile devices. Specifically, the messaging application will be compatible only with devices Android with operating system 4.0.3 or later, iPhone with iOS 9 or later, and some models with operating system KaiOs 2.5.1, among them JioPhone and JioPhone 2. In terms of devices with Windows Phone operating system, will no longer have access to the service on or after December 31, 2019.A long time ago that links to a web page can be previewed from WhatsApp, however when clicked will take you to the web browser that we have preset in our phone. The creators of WhatsApp are working to incorporate the next 2020 an internal browser to open links directly on the app. In the same way that for a time we can play a video of YouTube without exiting WhatsApp.You will also need an internal search engine for images: make a function that will allow us to seek among the images that have been received within a chat or a group without having to leave the app. Just as you did with the GIFs.Likewise, I also anticipate that the company property of Facebook introduced in 2020, the calls waiting, so the app will alert us when we are making a call and us among other.Read and respond to messages without having to open the app was already possible. Soon WhatsApp will also allow play the audio from the notifications screen is locked. You can listen to voice notes from the notifications and not appear on-line -and also save time.The long awaited dark mode, or night mode, WhatsApp is another novelty will arrive next year, and many people expect that it will be sooner rather than later because it is one of the most coveted of the members of the application, although it seems that Facebook is we are resisting. The dark mode will allow, if you have a color pure black, save battery on phones with OLED screens.WhatsApp identify your profile with a QR code. Another function that we have seen in beta versions, you’ll be able to share your profile and WhatsApp add contacts quickly simply by scanning the QR from your account.Messages that self-destruct: this message will self destruct in… an hour, a day, a week, a month or a year. This is the new feature that WhatsApp will offer to the users, who will be able to schedule the destruction of everything they say within the groups of the app.The revolution Boomerang will also come to WhatsApp. It is one of the most used tools in Instagram to create fun GIFs with images that go forward and then backwards. As was revealed this summer, when recording a video through WhatsApp, if it is less than 7 seconds, you’ll be able to turn it into a Boomerang to send it to your contacts or upload it to your Status.Some changes not so good: they hit ads. WhatsApp announced this year a total integration between WhatsApp, Facebook and Instagram. This means that the messaging service will make theirs some of the features of the other two -such as the use of Boomerang – and one of the worst is the advertising, which will now appear between the states of WhatsApp exactly as it appears between the stories of Instagram.In 2020 you’ll also be able to avoid that you added to group chat without your permission, which will send you an invitation to get involved in a group of WhatsApp. This way already you can go saying goodbye to a lot of groups, unwanted, that they do no more than occupy memory in your smartphone and annoy you with messages that do not interest you.And finally WhatsApp on multiple devices with a single account! it Was something very demanded by the users and here they are: with the same account you will be able to use the service on any device and in multiple at once, without having to close the account, since it is expected that there apps native to each system.
