A decade of WhatsApp under the meta umbrella of social media apps is February 2024. In the last 10 years, the instant messaging platform has undergone many changes with the aim of replacing SMS as the primary form of messaging. Now, it's set to get another shot at WhatsApp Web, the web version of the platform, with reports indicating the arrival of a new feature that will allow users to sort their chats using a new 'favorites' filter.
WhatsApp Web – Upcoming Feature
According to a report by WABetaInfo, WhatsApp recently rolled out a new update through the TestFlight Beta program, bringing the beta version of WhatsApp for iOS 220.127.116.11. Along with this update, the platform is working on bringing a new feature to WhatsApp Web that will allow users to assign a 'Favorites' filter to contacts of their choice. With the advent of this feature, WhatsApp Web users can select the contacts they consider as their favorites and apply a filter to prioritize them.
The report states that this feature is currently under development and is likely to come with future updates of WhatsApp Web.
This development comes soon after WABetaInfo discovered another upcoming feature in WhatsApp for iOS, which allows users to designate favorite contacts to make calls quickly from the Calls tab, meaning you can contact your favorite people without going through multiple options!
New dark mode
Along with the upcoming favorite filter, WhatsApp Web is also reportedly getting a revamped dark mode. With this move, reported by WABetaInfo , WhatsApp aims to align its aesthetics more closely with the Android app, catering to the preferences of dark theme enthusiasts. A refined color scheme follows in the footsteps of the Android app's Dark Mode update, emphasizing the importance of a consistent look across all platforms.
