Messenger Rooms Feature which was introduced last year and was one of the common features is now removed from WhatsApp as per a report of WABetaInfo, the changes will be visible first in the messaging app’s beta versions, after which WhatsApp may disable the icon for non-beta users.
WhatsApp beta for iOS 22.214.171.124 and WhatsApp beta for android 126.96.36.199 are the two beta versions for which WhatsApp has restricted the sharing functionality for iOS and Android, respectively.
This messenger room feature was launched in May 2020 with the goal of allowing users to create a group of 50 people on Facebook Messenger.
Messenger Rooms Feature of WhatsApp is likely to be replaced by another shortcut, according to WABetaInfo. It is quite apparent that the company was investigating the use of the Messenger Rooms Feature of WhatsApp and noticed that it wasn’t being used by many users, there was certainly no need for a different video calling tool since WhatsApp already had one, so bringing a video call shortcut to Facebook made almost no logic and was designed to not attract many users.
Messenger Rooms Feature wont be there Anymore
Users will now be able to see shortcuts to documents, camera, gallery, audio, and contacts after the Messenger Rooms shortcut was removed from these WhatsApp chat menus. Users can use them to send data and information to their contacts by tapping on them.
WhatsApp has recently been working on a number of new features, including a group icon editor that allows users to rapidly set an emoji or sticker as a group icon when forming a temporary group and the ability to transfer chats from Android to iPhone in the current iOS beta version, also it has added a new feature When forming a group for a temporary event, such as a birthday party or an event, this functionality will come in handy.
Additionally, a message reporting feature will safeguard users against spam and abusive texts. WhatsApp has released beta versions 188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206 for iOS, which include the ability to report individual messages on the platform. The new feature, according to WABetaInfo, will allow users to forward simply the reported message to WhatsApp while simultaneously notifying the sender. This will differ from how a user now reports a contact. When a user complains to another user, the five most recent communications are transmitted to WhatsApp.
