Hello, Hitech’ians welcome back to my another tech post. In this post, I will tell you about the upcoming WhatsApp Swipe to Reply Android feature and Dark Mode in WhatsApp. So, without wasting much time let’s head over to it.
WhatsApp Swipe to Reply Android feature:
WhatsApp is reportedly busy in working to bring its WhatsApp Swipe to Reply Android feature for Android. The messaging app had an exciting 2018 as it has been launching and testing new features with high frequency. The WhatsApp app for iPhone already has the Swipe to Reply feature, which seems set to be making its way to Android devices. The new feature will let WhatsApp users immediately reply to a message using a swipe right gesture. It actually means you will no longer need to tap and hold the message to get the Reply button. According to sources, WhatsApp is also said to be working on a Dark Mode.
According to WABetaInfo report, WhatsApp is working on the WhatsApp Swipe to Reply Android feature in its Android-version app. The messaging app has recently submitted the latest update through the Google Play Beta Programme, taking the beta version up to 2.18.282. The report says that the feature is presently not available due to “development reasons” and that it needs to gain several improvements before being officially available for all WhatsApp messenger app for Android users. However, the report adds that the new WhatsApp feature may be available for download in one of the next few updates.
When the Swipe to Reply feature is available on WhatsApp for Android devices, you will be able to swipe a message that you want to reply to, towards the right side. After swiping, WhatsApp will automatically load the message in the reply context.
Now, talking about the Dark Mode, WhatsApp is finally said to be working on adding the most anticipated feature into its app. According to a tweet posted by WABetaInfo, WhatsApp has finally started working on a Dark Mode feature for both iOS and Android app. However, the report does not mention the definite timeline for the Dark Mode feature to roll-out to WhatsApp.
The upcoming dark mode feature will help to reduce strain on user’s eyes while using WhatsApp in low-light conditions or at night. It will minimize the battery use and will conserve battery for later use, especially on phones that have OLED displays
