WhatsApp is constantly changing and developing, and in recent months the developers of the application, which is owned by Meta (Facebook), have been testing some particularly important features.

According to a report on the WABetaInfo blog, which follows the developments and innovations in the popular messaging application, WhatsApp will strengthen the security of messages for one-time viewing - and will block the possibility of taking a screenshot (including video and text).

Meanwhile the update is available to a limited number of beta testers and it is not clear when it will be released to all users.

On the other hand, it is important to remember that the messages can be photographed or recorded using a camera or other device, before they disappear.

At the same time, WhatsApp recently began releasing to iOS users the option

to hide the "connected" status in the application

.

The meanings of this feature are many, as it will be possible to enter the application without other people knowing.



Another innovation that will come soon is the search for chat messages by date.

In WABetaInfo, find a calendar icon at the bottom of the screen, when you click on the search bar.

Of course, switching to a specific date will shorten the tedious search process.

In collaboration with Rami Levy

In April of this year, WhatsApp announced a new update called Communities (or "communities" in Hebrew), which has not yet been officially launched, and will allow people to connect separate groups under one umbrella and in a structure that suits them.

The goal: to ease the load in multi-participant groups.

With the new feature, users will be able to receive updates sent to the entire community, and easily organize smaller discussion groups on specific topics.

The communities will also include significant new tools for the administrators, including 'announcement messages' that will be sent to all members of the community, and control over which groups will be included in it or not.
