As of now, the method of chat history migration is still unknown but there is the possibility that Google Drive will be used to temporarily store the chat history.

Here’s the question that pop-ups in the user’s mind, what happens after the chat is migrated to another device?. The answer is in the new WhatsApp beta update.

After the chat migration, the devices will start to be in sync with each other and this is useful for some chat history like pinned, starred messages, or any other background service.

When both the current and other devices working with the same WhatsApp account and chat syncing started, a notification will be presented on the main device. But the actions related to chat deletion won’t be applied on another device like:

  • Deleting a chat on a device won’t remove the same chat on another device.
  • Deleting a specific message for everyone will delete it on any linked device.
  • Deleting a specific message for you won’t delete it on linked devices.

Note:

WhatsApp is still working on multi-device and what needs to be synced, so everything might change before the release: the last word has not been said yet.

WhatsApp Desktop privacy settings

WhatsApp is making it possible for desktop users to manage their privacy settings within the system itself. The developers seem to be more concerned about the privacy setting for the users.

The noted point is, users aren’t able to change their privacy settings in the Desktop systems. They have to use smartphones to customize the settings, which is quite hectic to use often.

However, WhatsApp is also customizing the privacy options for smartphone users on iOS and Androids. Related to this, a new “My Contact Except” function is being developed that’ll release soon.

As for the WhatsApp Web/Desktop users, we are seeing back-to-back editions after the multi-device feature. Now, this privacy setting feature will bring more conveniences for the users in the WhatsApp Desktop.

The team is designing a separate privacy window to place the options that are the same as the smartphone users. Below you can check the image preview-

Besides, you can also see that WhatsApp has also initiated a new beta program for desktop users. It’ll allow them to be a part of this beta activity and help the developers to bring more modifications to this application.

However, it is in the development phase and will roll out with the future update. Thereby, it might be possible to have more features in the final release.

Previous WhatsApp Update:

In the previous edition, WhatsApp has rolled out the Message rating function with the Android 2.21.22.7 beta update. It allows users to rate a particular message received from business accounts.

Furthermore, WhatsApp cannot see its content and who rated that message. The feedback is saved as purely anonymous with end-to-end encrypted messages. Overall, all ratings help businesses improve their messages to customers.
