The messenger WhatsApp has new notification features, as well as other improvements, including Wallet support, protection from suspicious links, and more.
Preview in notifications
The postscript to the update says: 'When you receive photos or GIFs, use the function 3D Touch or swipe left on the notification and click on' View 'to view the media from the notification.'
Preview support in notifications requires iOS 10 and newer.
If you like the Statuses in WhatsApp, you will be glad to know that you can now use the status search. The postscript to the update doesn't say anything else, but the new version contains some other notable changes.
Protection against suspicious links
One such change is the automatic detection of suspicious links. If you receive a message with a link, the application will analyze it and find out whether it is worth trusting.
To test the function, you can ask someone to send you the following link https: //wabetaınfo.com. Here's another example of a suspicious link: https: //ẉhatsapp.com/free-tickets. The first letter of the link looks like a 'w', but it is actually a different character used by spammers. Thus, it is easy to run into a malicious site.
Now, if you try to follow a suspicious link, you will see a warning.
According to the company, WhatsApp automatically checks links to protect your privacy. At the same time, messages remain encrypted, and all verification takes place within your device.
New features will appear in WhatsApp gradually over several days. WhatsApp can be downloaded for free from App Store.
