WhatsApp has launched an official chat to keep users updated with the latest information about the app. The chat is marked with a green verified badge, allowing users to verify its legitimacy. The chat provides users with tips and tricks on how to use the app, information on new features and updates, and helps prevent users from falling victim to scams or phishing attempts. The advantage of receiving messages in the official chat is that users can stay informed without searching for information themselves. They can also archive, mute or block the chat if they do not want to receive notifications.
The first message sent by WhatsApp in the official chat explains how to make messages disappear and links to an official FAQ. The disappearing messages feature allows users to send messages that disappear from both the sender and receiver’s chat after a certain period. The messages are randomly sent to users on iOS and Android, and the chat will only appear when a message is received by those users. This official chat feature is expected to provide users with a more convenient and secure way to receive information and stay up-to-date with the app.
