Messenger WhatsApp for Android has received call waiting support. The user can now take an incoming call right during the call without hanging up. Earlier this feature was implemented in the version of the application for iOS.
The developers also fixed the error, which caused WhatsApp to quickly discharge the battery on some smartphones Xiaomi, Samsung, Google and OnePlus. Previously, those who installed the previous version, complained that the messenger began to consume up to 30% of the total charge consumption.
Another innovation is related to privacy: now users can control who can add them to groups. In order to set up the permissions, you need to go to Settings -> Account -> Privacy -> Groups.
At the same time, you can protect the application with a fingerprint. To do this, open “Settings” -> “Account” -> “Privacy” -> “Fingerprint lock” and enable the option “Unlock by fingerprint”.
In addition, WhatsApp has been integrated with the Any.do task scheduler – now you can create new tasks and reminders directly inside the messenger, chatting with the bot. The integration also works in a different direction, allowing you to share Any.do’s planned activities or, for example, shopping lists with contacts in the WhatsApp address book.
Tasks are synchronized between the two services automatically. When the deadline is reached, WhatsApp will send a notification.
