Previous news? WhatsApp news of the week: open chat with unknown phone numbers, message reaction feature!


In the article about the WhatsApp beta for iOS update, we announced a feature that allows users to transfer their chat history to a different iPhone. With this feature, it’s finally possible to move the chat history to a different iPhone without relying on iCloud. Instead, thanks to the WhatsApp beta for iOS update, some users were able to experiment with a silence unknown callers option. In the past few days, the WhatsApp for iOS 23.14.79 update was released on the App Store. Thanks to the official changelog provided by WhatsApp, we discovered that this feature is finally rolling out to everyone!

The official changelog still mentions that improved navigation for a large set of avatar stickers is available, as announced in the article about the WhatsApp for iOS 23.13.78 update, but it also highlights three new features: chat transfer, landscape mode support for video calls, and the ability to silence unknown callers. While we already covered news regarding the chat transfer feature and the ability to silence unknown callers, the landscape mode support for video calls is definitely new. In our opinion, the landscape mode provides a broader and more expansive view of the video call interface compared to the portrait mode. Specifically, it allows call participants to see more people on the screen simultaneously, and we think it’s helpful when you’re part of a large group call.

If you don’t have these features, note that some accounts may receive them over the coming weeks, as indicated in the official changelog. Please stay ahead by regularly updating WhatsApp from the App Store and the TestFlight app to get these features in the future in case you don’t have them after installing this update.

The chat transfer feature, along with the landscape mode support for video calls and the silence unknown callers option, is finally available for iOS users that install the latest update of WhatsApp from the App Store. Make sure to install this update to enjoy a better user experience.
