The CEO of Meta company, Mark Zuckerberg, has made a commitment to combine the features of Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp with ease.
In a few beta updates WhatsApp allows sharing status photos and videos on Instagram.
In order to accomplish this, the company has been providing features that are consistent across all platforms.
The feature through which WhatsApp allows sharing status photos and videos on Instagram is one such step.
WhatsApp allows sharing status photos and videos on Instagram
According to a report, by WABetaInfo WhatsApp is planning to introduce a feature that will make it easier for users to share their status updates as Instagram Stories.
This feature, which was discovered in the Android 184.108.40.206 version is currently being tested on Android devices in beta.
As per the report users will have the option to choose whether they want to share their status updates on Instagram or not making this feature completely optional.
The report also mentions that those who regularly share content across both platforms will find this feature time saving.
It’s also worth noting that there are differences in photo and video editing features between WhatsApp and Instagram.
Thus users might experience a decrease in quality when adding Stories directly from WhatsApp.
Other New Features Coming To WhatsApp Soon
1. The Meta AI Chatbot Feature:
WhatsApp will soon include new features on the platform to improve the user experience.
According to a recent update, through a new special feature added on Meta-owned applications, users can now interact with an AI chatbot.
Reportedly, there is now an icon button for initiating new chats above the icon on the Chats tab.
This button makes it easier for starting AI-prompted conversations thus saving users’ time and increasing comfort.
2. New Search Bar Feature Of WhatsApp:
Additionally, WhatsApp is expected to come up with a new search bar feature, which will help in enhancing user privacy and connectivity.
According to WABetaInfo’s screenshot, this will enable users to discover others by their usernames.
The upgrade is meant to simplify finding friends and contacts by eliminating phone numbers exchange needs.
Based on the report, the next feature will allow users to create their own usernames as an alternative choice for those who prefer not to reveal their phone numbers.
Experts believe that this development will be particularly beneficial for people who are concerned about privacy and those who would like more control on their personal information.
Users will have complete discretion over whether or not to use this new feature because creating a username will be completely optional.

What Is This Meta AI Chatbot?
In September Meta, the parent company of WhatsApp made an announcement about their Meta AI chatbot.
During the announcement Mark Zuckerberg revealed that they are currently testing chatbots powered by AI for the American market.
Following this announcement Meta later released a version of the AI Chat feature on WhatsApp in September.
However some users initially had difficulty locating and using it as it was somewhat hidden within the contact list.
Fortunately with the WhatsApp beta for Android 220.127.116.11 update there is now a button on the home screen that provides quick access to the chatbot.
This improvement simplifies the process and enhances user experience.
