WhatsApp has rolled out new features with which you can type content and customize them. You can view even notification alerts in italic and bold as part of the version 2.12.535 for Android. However, WhatsApp has now introduced several improvements in document file sharing with its incorporation of support for Google Drive.
More new features coming
As per reports, we know now that you can share the PDF, PowerPoint, or Word files from the Google Drive. Even if you upload a PowerPoint or Word file, it would automatically convert to a PDF format before sharing it on the messaging service.
Apart from the features mentioned above, a progress percentage is displayed whenever automatic local backup runs in the background. Even though the pop-up blocks the functioning of the app, the percentage would still be displayed so that users have an idea as to how much time would they have to wait before being able to use the app again.
Another minor modification includes that no phone number would show up in the center or front of the new Settings screen. This profile section would see status, name, and photo. As of now, there is no availability of this latest release for download from the website of the company, but it does show up on the Google Play as an OTA update for beta testers.
