WhatsApp is about to get users thrilled as promised merging activities with Facebook and Instagram. In the nearest update, it will be possible for users to share their Whatsapp status to Facebook and Instagram stories.
WABetaInfo published an article that uncovers two new WhatsApp features. The first one lets you share your WhatsApp status as a Facebook story. Stories are the most popular thing in social media right now. Literally every big company, including Google, Facebook and Snap use them in their applications.
The publication mentions that the “Add to Facebook Story” button will only appear if the Facebook application is installed on the device. You can see the screenshot of the feature below.
The next yet unreleased feature is the profile QR Codes. Snapchat and Messenger have been using similar identification methods for quite a while, and it looks like WhatsApp is joining the party too. Once the feature becomes available, you will be able to navigate to your profile, show someone the QR code and your phone number which is associated with your WhatsApp account. This will allow you to exchange contact details easily between friends. If you shared your QR Code on social media and are now tired of unnecessary requests, you can revoke the code at any time
Both of these features were found in the beta version of WhatsApp 2.19.151. But, as I already mentioned, none of them are available for the public just yet. The estimated time of release is unknown, too, as it’s up to the WhatsApp’s development team to feel comfortable about the update.
