WhatsApp is said to have started rolling out the beta for its Android client on Tuesday. This version is said to include the undo message deletion feature. It allows users to recover accidentally deleted messages in a chat. The feature is said to be available to a limited number of beta testers. The Meta-owned platform is expected to begin a wider rollout of the feature in the coming weeks. According to a recent report, WhatsApp is working on a new privacy feature that will allow users to hide their phone number from other members of a subgroup of the community on the app.
According to one report via WhatsApp WABetaInfo tracking feature, users will now get a snack bar at the bottom of the screen once the notification is cleared with Delete for me right to buy. This new bar is said to give users the option to recover deleted messages within seconds.
The Metaplatform-owned is said to be rolling out the WhatsApp beta update to Android 126.96.36.199 to a limited number of beta testers. The company is expected to roll out the feature to more users in the coming weeks.
According to a recent report, the feature was first spotted in Android beta 188.8.131.52 of WhatsApp. It was reported to be unavailable to beta testers at the time. WhatsApp may also bring this feature to future iOS and desktop versions.
In related news, WhatsApp may be working on a privacy feature supposedly allowing users to share their contact numbers with several subgroups of the community on the app. The supposed ‘share phone number’ feature will be disabled by default. After enabling this feature, a user’s contact number is automatically hidden from all members of a specific community’s subgroups. Users will be able to share their number with a small group of users if they so choose. The feature is said to have been spotted on WhatsApp for Android beta 184.108.40.206 and is currently unavailable to users using the beta channel.
