top 5 features coming to whatsapp in 2022

WhatsApp has around 2 billion monthly active users, and the instant messaging service is well-aware that its users will remain loyal only if it manages to keep up with competing apps, such as Telegram, Viber, and iMessage.

In 2022, WhatsApp users can look forward to many new and exciting features. Unfortunately, we can’t say with certainty that they’ll all be available by the end of the year, but we’ll certainly keep you informed.

#1 – Instagram Reels Integration

WhatsApp and Instagram are both owned by the same company, Meta, so it makes sense for the two apps to become more closely integrated. In particular, WhatsApp is supposed to get a new section where users will be able to watch Instagram Reels, short videos published on Instagram, directly within the app.

#2 – Last Seen Status Hiding

Right now, you can hide your last seen status on WhatsApp for nobody, your contacts, or everybody. Later this year, you should also be able to hide it only from specific contacts. This feature can go a long way in helping users better protect their privacy.

#3 – WhatsApp Community

In the near future, WhatsApp users will have one fewer reason to use Discord because the upcoming Community feature will make it possible for admins to create a community channel with up to 10 groups. Admins will then be able to send messages to all groups at once.

#5 – Custom Sticker Packs

A Dubai-based company has completed the initial trials for the UAE’s first driverless trucks. The groundbreaking achievement by Evocargo, partnering with Dubai South, took place at Dubai South Logistics District, and marked a significant step towards incorporating autonomous technologies into the region’s wider logistics infrastructure.

Announced on Wednesday, July 17th, the trials featured the Evocargo N1 unmanned electric truck navigating a predetermined route within a controlled setting. The test involved interactions with common road obstacles such as cars, trucks, and pedestrians, aiming to evaluate the vehicle’s hardware and software reliability, accident prevention systems, and overall readiness for public road use.

Officials were keen to highlight that this accomplishment aligns with the UAE’s ambitious strategy to position itself as a global leader in innovation and technology adoption. The country aims to have 25% of all transportation in Dubai autonomous by 2030, underscoring its commitment to revolutionizing the logistics sector using advanced technologies.

Mohsen Ahmad, CEO of the Logistics District at Dubai South, emphasized the importance of the collaboration with Evocargo in enhancing the region’s logistics capabilities. He noted that autonomous vehicles are set to increase efficiency, reduce carbon emissions, and establish a sustainable logistics infrastructure that will benefit both Dubai and the wider UAE.
