For Android users, WhatsApp has recently begun rolling out a new keyboard featuring an emoji bar. The platform is currently developing a new functionality to filter chat lists.

With the WhatsApp beta for Android upgrade, a bottom navigation bar was announced. WhatsApp is currently working on additional features to enhance the user experience. According to WABetaInfo, the Meta-owned platform is getting ready to bring a new feature that will let Android users filter their cat lists.

"The idea behind this concept was to address the current challenge of accessing the filtering feature, as the current implementation is not very user-friendly. We wanted to bring the ability to filter our conversations to the chat list because we think that a better placement of the filter button would greatly improve the user experience. Through the WhatsApp beta for Android update from the Google Play Store, we discovered that WhatsApp is now working on a new feature to easily filter the chat list, available in a future update of the app", said the website.

WhatsApp chat list filtering will be available for Android users soon

Currently, WhatsApp is planning to add three filters at the top of the chat list, replacing the tabs that were present before the bottom navigation bar was introduced. These filters offer choices for categorizing chats according to unread messages, intimate exchanges, and professional discussions. Although these filters are tailored to particular conversation types, the lack of a group chat-specific filter is clearly apparent.

WhatsApp just gave Windows users the option to change the font size. By enabling users to change the size of text shown on their desktop computers, this new feature seeks to improve the overall user experience. The WhatsApp app's 'Personalisation' option is where you can access the text resizing function. The company works to improve its app on every platform.

    If Nothing OS is nothing more that an overlay with Google still in the midst….then I ain’t interested.

    Apple was forced to add USB-C to a phone and the maccultists start talking about “revolution” and “paradigm shift” (as if USB phones had never come out before). It’s so ridiculous it’s reminiscent of comedians doing the “stepped on a water hose” stunt – that was at least somehow funny a hundred years ago.
    Reading this on a site that used to be a technical resource is especially ridiculous.
    How pathetic

    “An iPhone 15 with a USB-C port will mean more than you think”

    That Apple can finally stop hindering progress if spanked hard enough ?

    I’m thrilled to see Instagram taking steps to enhance the user experience with features like Live Activities. This update is a game-changer, especially for those who frequently upload content on the platform.

    The ability to track upload progress in the background is a simple yet incredibly useful addition. It not only keeps users informed about the status of their uploads but also allows for a more seamless experience on the platform. No more constantly checking if your post has successfully uploaded or worrying about interrupted uploads due to a weak signal.

    As an active Instagram user, this feature is a relief. It showcases Instagram’s commitment to improving user satisfaction and addressing common pain points. It’s all about making the platform more user-friendly, and this feature certainly accomplishes that.

    I can’t wait to try out Live Activities and enjoy a stress-free posting experience. Kudos to Instagram for continually innovating and making our social media lives easier!

    Keep up the great work, Instagram, and thanks to ghacks for keeping us in the loop with the latest tech updates!
