|Name of the feature?||New UI (Contact Info), Default Message Timer, 24 hours and 90 days, multi-device changes|
|Compatibility?||WhatsApp beta for Android 220.127.116.11 is marked as compatible update.|
|I’ve installed the 18.104.22.168 beta update, but I don’t have all those mentioned features. Why?||It can happen that you haven’t received everything. More features will be rolled out with the next beta updates.|
WhatsApp is releasing the new WhatsApp beta for Android 22.214.171.124 update, bringing a lot of features for those beta testers that haven’t received them in the previous updates.
What’s new? At first, we are talking about a new interface for Contact Info, released on WhatsApp beta for Android 126.96.36.199 (and 188.8.131.52 for some people). Today WhatsApp is rolling out the new UI for more beta testers. In some cases, they may also receive the activation of the new interface for Group Info.
There is more: in the WhatsApp beta for Android 184.108.40.206 update, WhatsApp has released a new default message timer, so you can start new chat threads with disappearing messages automatically enabled. Today, WhatsApp is releasing the ability to set a default message timer for more people and they can also set 24 hours and 90 days as new expiration times for disappearing chats. You can enable the default message timer in your Privacy Settings.
In addition, WhatsApp is also rolling out some changes for multi-device for more beta testers, released after the 220.127.116.11 beta update:
As mentioned in the WhatsApp beta for Android 18.104.22.168 changelog, these changes allow WhatsApp to stop sending notifications when the security code is updated every time the linked device list is changed.
This is a good improvement for multi-device, but you cannot opt out of the multi-device beta program anymore: we can consider multi-device more stable now, and WhatsApp is going to introduce more improvements to increase the quality of the feature in the next updates.
If you still didn’t receive one of these features (or more), don’t worry: WhatsApp is starting rolling out these features for more beta testers today, so more activations will be following very soon!
