Being the most popular instant messaging application in the world (official figures exceed 2.000 billion users) does not give you the right to rest on your laurels. There is always room to improve and incorporate new ideas to remain at the top. In this post we are going to analyze the new functions that WhatsApp will have hereinafter. All of them will be available very soon.

With these innovations, WhatsApp developers not only seek to improve the experience of their users, but also to get ahead of the competition (Telegram, Google Chat, etc.), which increasingly offers better alternatives.

WhatsApp continues working to offer the best to its users

Since its creation in 2009 until today, the WhatsApp application has evolved spectacularly in every way. Obviously, the fact of being acquired by Meta a few years later was a huge boost and the improvements that we know today came one after another.

Double check, message encryption, the WhatsAppWeb computer application version, groups, video calls, stickers, temporary messages... Every year WhatsApp surprises us with new functions, some more notable than others.

What news will WhatsApp bring?

The battery of new WhatsApp functions that arrive now in 2024 are especially interesting. And not only for mobile phones, but also for tablets and computers. Among other things because some of them incorporate AI technologies.

All these new features are already included in the beta version of WhatsApp for Android 2.24.3.20. Let's see what they are:

Create custom stickers

Air shipments are the most efficient if you need your cargo or documents to arrive quickly and securely. stickers They were incorporated into WhatsApp in February 2019 and, thanks to their versatility, little by little they have become a kind of internal language in many user groups. A way to communicate in a fun way.

As all WhatsApp users already know, stickers are those graphic elements used to express feelings or thoughts in a conversation. In addition to the default stickers, there are applications that allow us to download new designs. The novelty now is that we can also make them ourselves thanks to the help of artificial intelligence. We explain how to do it:

Instructions for creating stickers

The way that WhatsApp offers us to create personalized stickers is very simple. Simply use a command or prompt to design and share it. These are the steps to follow for its creation:

  1. To begin with, we start a chat (can be both individual and group).
  2. Then we click on the tab emoticons and we select the option of stickers.
  3. Then click on «create sticker» and we write one or two words from which it must be generated into a sticker.
  4. WhatsApp will generate up to four options among which we can choose the one we like the most.

These new stickers that we generate can later be saved in "favorites" so we can use them whenever we want.

Passkeys activated for IOS devices

Among these new WhatsApp functions, there is one that will be of special interest to iPhone users. This is a novelty that is already incorporated in the beta version of WhatsApp for iOS 24.2.10.73 and consists of the Passkey activation application.

Apple Passkey It is a technology designed with the idea of replace passwords classic to access apps and websites from iPhone and other Apple devices. A more comfortable and, above all, safer method.

Once this system is applied, it will be enough to use unlock password of the phone, or the corresponding biometric recognition system (Face ID or Touch ID). That easy.

Set events automatically

Finally, we must mention the possibility that WhatsApp offers us to Set scheduled events automatically within a group's information screen. This may already sound familiar to many users. In reality, a more rudimentary version of this new function was already implemented with version 2.23.21.12.

However, now the function of automatically pinning elements is much more developed, converted into an effective tool to highlight messages or information that are particularly relevant to the members of a WhatsApp group. A function equally useful for groups of friends and work.

These new features will not only apply to phones.

We will find all these interesting news in the WhatsApp of our mobile phones, but also on tablets and computers. All these new WhatsApp functions will not be applied at once, but progressively. They will first be available in some countries and, in a second phase, in the rest of the world.

Other new functions that WhatsApp plans to incorporate in the short term (in fact, some of them have already begun to be implemented) are the creation of surveys, new ways to share statuses or the possibility of increasing the number of administrators in a group, among many others.
