WhatsApp to Introduce Cross-App Messaging with Signal, Telegram

The WhatsApp app, which is owned by Meta, has added several new features in recent months. The messaging app is making efforts to improve user experience, whether it is developing a conversation lock for the web version of WhatsApp or prohibiting users from taking copies of other people’s selfie images. Furthermore, it has been reported by WABetaInfo that WhatsApp users will soon have the ability to transmit messages to other platforms. For example, you may be able to use WhatsApp to send messages to apps like Signal and Telegram. Take this information with a grain of salt, though, as the apps that will be supported as part of the functionality have not yet been officially announced.

Latest feature on WhatsApp

According to the WABetaInfo source, WhatsApp will be rolling out a new update with the version 2.24.6.2 designation. This update gives away the existence of a new function that will control chats with third parties.

WhatsApp had earlier revealed working on a chat interoperability feature in beta version 2.24.5.18 for Android in response to the Digital Markets Act (DMA), which emphasises chat interoperability to enhance user communication across different applications. According to the most recent analysis of the Google Play Store’s 2.24.5.20 beta build, WhatsApp is actively working on creating a special conversation information panel just for third-party chats.

Important information is displayed on the chat info box for third-party chats, as demonstrated in an image released by WABetaInfo. WhatsApp intends to provide the default profile photo and the name of the third-party app linked to the chat in place of profile names and images, which are not available for third-party chats. Customized preferences will be ensured by giving users authority over which apps can interact with their WhatsApp accounts.

It’s crucial to remember, though, that third-party discussions on WhatsApp will have some restrictions. For example, calling with third-party apps will not be possible, nor will group conversations including these apps be supported.

Text messages may be the only way to communicate with third-party conversations at first, but more features may be added in later releases. Furthermore, as this feature will be optional, consumers will also have the choice to manually enable the interoperability service.

The latest privacy feature on WhatsApp


It was recently claimed that WhatsApp is also developing a new privacy feature intended to prevent users from taking screenshots of other people’s profile images.

According to a WABetaInfo report, users attempting to screenshot another person’s profile image will now receive a notification when using the most recent WhatsApp beta for Android, which is available on the Google Play Store. ‘Can’t take a screenshot due to app restrictions’ appears in the notification.

It is anticipated that in the following weeks, the screenshot block feature which is presently exclusive to a small subset of beta testers will be made available to all users.
