WhatsApp for Android beta updates and anticipates three new features

The development of the beta version of WhatsApp for Android does not seem to know any obstacle: a few days after the release of version 2.20.199.8, which had anticipated more information about the holiday mode and more, the popular messaging application is again updated in the Play Store, version 2.20.200.3.

With this new version have come three more features, such as Catalogue Shortcut, New Call Button and WhatsApp Doodles, which we discuss in more detail below.

Catalogue shortcut

Catalogue Shortcut: WhatsApp is working on a new button that will soon be added only to the chats of companies that have a catalogue set up. The feature is currently under development, but once enabled, the button should find space next to the call button.

New Call Button: WhatsApp is developing a new button that combines audio and video calls. WABetaInfo lets you know that initially it will only be available in corporate chats, although it cannot be excluded that in the future it may also debut in standard conversations.

WhatsApp Doodles: A new feature that allows a pattern (Doodles) to be added to solid colour chat backgrounds. The same feature is also being developed in the Web and desktop versions of WhatsApp.

In all cases, please note that this refers to features that are not yet publicly available and whose release time is unknown, although it will not take long before they are available to everyone.
