Whatsapp is the most popular messaging app in the world and over 1 billion people are using it. In India almost 200 million people use WhatsApp.

This year alone WhatsApp has revamped the app quite a few times and from increased media sharing limit to video streaming, take a look at all the new WhatsApp features released this year.

In-app YouTube playback

WhatsApp is also testing a feature that allows users to play YouTube videos within the app.

Which means you will be able to watch the video without leaving the app; the video can be viewed in either picture-in-picture mode or full-screen mode.

Ability to queue messages on iPhone

While WhatsApp had this ability on Android for a while now, iPhone users finally got it in January. This ability to queue messages even when in areas of poor or no connectivity was a big miss for iPhone users, as it prevented them to send messages at all in areas of poor connectivity.

Recall or Revoke feature

The feature in the many possible forms that it could arrive would allow users to recall or ‘unsend’ messages they have sent to their contacts, or even edit them.

The Live Location
The Live Location sharing feature was also spotted on Android beta, hinting that it will make its way to WhatsApp soon. This will probably turn location sharing on as a broadcast – enabling contacts to see each other on a map.

Change Number and Live Location feature

Lastly but importantly, WhatsApp was recently reported to be testing a new feature on the Windows Phone and Windows 10 Mobile platform that could make life less painful when changing your contact number.
