Animated Stickers, QR codes, video call improvements and more new features now added to WhatsApp



In the past, WhatsApp has added a number of big features such as a dark mode for its app but there’s more to come. Now, WhatsApp has announced that it’ll soon be rolling out new features such as Animated stickers, QR codes, Dark mode for web, and more.

These new features also include the new increased limit of up to 8 people on a video call to maximize video calling experience.

WhatsApp wrote: “Today, we are excited to confirm some new features that are rolling out over the next few weeks:

  • Animated Stickers: Stickers are one of the fastest-growing ways people communicate on WhatsApp, with billions sent every day. We are rolling out new animated sticker packs that are even more fun and expressive.
  • QR codes: We are making it easier than ever to add new contact. Soon when you meet someone new, you will be able to scan their QR code to add them to your contacts. No more tapping in their digits one at a time.
  • Dark mode for WhatsApp web and desktop: The incredibly popular Dark Mode theme now extends to your computer.
  • Improvements to group video calls: With now up to 8 people on a video call, we’ve made it easier to focus on whoever you want by letting you press and hold to maximize a participant’s video to full screen. We also added a video icon in group chats of 8 or less, so you can easily start a group video call with 1-tap.
  • Status comes to KaiOS: KaiOS users can now enjoy the popular feature that lets you share updates that disappear after 24 hours.”
