Beta users of WhatsApp on iOs are already enjoying some news related to notifications, making them more complete in every way.
The messaging platform has featured two different functions:
– It will show profile pictures in notifications. For those who use version 220.127.116.11 beta on iOS 15, or higher. In this way, when we receive messages from chats and groups, we will see the sender’s profile photo, right in the notification, without having to click.
– It will show information in notifications when someone mentions us or answer us in a group. For those who participate in the TestFlight beta program in version 22.1.71. This information in the notifications will only appear when someone mentions us or when they respond to a message that we have put in a group, it is not enabled for individual chats.
We will see these new functionalities in different updates, after the contact information page is redesigned, something they are also working on. The updated contact information page may also have a dedicated search shortcut. Unfortunately, it will only be for iOS, they have not said anything about this feature for android users yet.
Remember that at the end of the year we already announced that there would be a function for group administrators to link their groups to a community on iOS, so it seems that the WhatsApp iPhone department has put the batteries on these dates.
WhatsApp is still the most used messaging app in the West, but it will have to work hard to prevent alternatives like Telegram from following its heels. New features like one-way channels would help the media a lot, and more peace of mind about data privacy would be a great help to the general public.
It will be much easier to transfer WhatsApp from Android smartphone to iPhone soon
The team behind the popular WhatsApp messenger is one step closer to being able to easily transfer chat history from an old smartphone to a new one without unnecessary complications and additional tools.
Recall that since the fall of 2021, WhatsApp has a tool for transferring chat history from iPhone to some Android-based smartphones, such as Samsung and Google Pixel.
Now in the beta version of WhatsApp for iOS there are references to the ability to transfer a chat from Android to iPhone.
The thematic resource WABetaInfo drew attention to the innovation. However, so far there are only “evidence” in the beta version, and the function itself does not work. Nevertheless, this gives hope for a relatively early launch – in the coming months.
An era is gone: the headphones from the iPhone kit will disappear even in France
Apple is no longer required to include EarPods with every iPhone sold in France. This was reported by the French thematic resource Consomac, citing explanations published by the French retailer Fnac.
Why is this news interesting not only to the French? The fact is that since the release of the iPhone 12 in 2020, Apple has removed EarPods and chargers from all its smartphones, explaining this step by caring for the environment. However, an exception was made – in France, the law required that the headphones be kept in the box. As a result, a special package was produced for France – a regular box with an iPhone was packed into another larger box with EarPods.
Now everything will change. As of January 24, Apple is no longer required to include headphones in the box with every iPhone, even in France. The new law was adopted at the end of 2021 and is also designed to reduce the impact of humanity on the environment.
Apple’s decision to slash the iPhone’s packaging has sparked controversy in other countries as well. For example, in Brazil, Apple was fined $2 million for not including a power adapter in the iPhone box.
Samsung starts accepting pre-orders for the Galaxy S22 tomorrow: the first buyers will receive discounts and bonuses
Samsung will open pre-orders for the new Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22+ and Galaxy S22 Ultra smartphones tomorrow morning. The company previously released a teaser for the upcoming Galaxy S22 Unpacked event and also hinted at a potential merger between its flagship Galaxy S and Note lines.
The source writes that there will be pleasant discounts and bonuses for those who have pre-ordered, which will be discussed tomorrow. Presumably, we are talking about smart watches and some interesting cases. Also, early buyers are expected to receive chargers, which are not expected in smartphone boxes.
Last year, the Galaxy S21 was unveiled on January 14th, and pre-orderers received a $60 bonus to spend at the Samsung Store on accessories. It was also announced that under the trade-in program, the discount could be up to $700.
Tae Moon Roh (TM Roh), head of Samsung’s mobile division, said that next month at Unpacked we will see “the most amazing Galaxy S series device that Samsung has ever made.”
The presentation of the Galaxy S22 should take place on February 8 or 9.
