These new features come after WhatsApp released the self-destructing messages.
WhatsApp continues to test to improve its popular messaging platform; this time a new feature that allows users to mute videos before sending, as well as new wallpapers.
Among the novelties they prepare, there is the configuration to choose for each chat between 32 new bright backgrounds, 29 dark, a personalized and solid colors. Users can also edit its opacity.
WhatsApp has released these features in beta version for Android operating systems and an update for the web version and stable versions will be available soon.
In addition, it also replaces what is currently known as archived chats with “read later,” a change that will not show notifications of new messages while chats remain in this section, with the aim of reducing interruptions.
These new features come after WhatsApp released self-destructing messages, a feature that, when activated, users can choose to have messages and files in a conversation automatically deleted every seven days.
The app also redesigned its storage management tool earlier this month, which now, in addition to cleaning tips, offers the ability to select and delete all files at once by ticking a single box.
On February 19, 2014, the application was purchased by the Facebook company for $ 19 billion ($ 12 billion of which was shares of the social network and the remainder in cash).
