The most imminent feature to come to WhatsApp is the group invites which looks much more refined and gone is the QR code implementation from the main site page. It’s not confirmed that the QR code implementation of inviting people to public WhatsApp group is completely scrapped but the absence could be a part of much need UI uplift. The feature to doodle and draw on the pictures before sending has also received a UI uplift. The in-development feature looks like Snapchat on demand as people may find the similarities between the two.

In addition to all these hidden features that have been unlocked by WABetaInfo, WABetaInfo has released modules that can help unlock the features for jailbroken iPhones. Android and all non-jailbroken iPhones will have to wait for the official rollout to being. This comes right after the rollout of large single emoji to iOS devices including proper management of text messages including selecting multiple chats at once.
