WhatsApp update finally brings a long-needed new feature to Android users

The new version of WhatsApp is released for Android users who can save countless unpleasant mistakes.

The world's most popular messaging application currently has a disadvantage that makes it difficult for users to see who they are sending images to.

Whenever a message is sent to a contact, the sender only sees a small picture icon of the recipient profile image, which makes it easier to accidentally send the picture to the wrong person.

The new feature makes it clearer who the users are sending pictures by showing the contact's name below the profile image.

Only WhatsApp users on Android devices – including Samsung, Huawei and smartphone owners – will receive updates because iPhone users already have the feature included in the latest version of WhatsApp for iOS.

The feature was first noticed by WABetaInfo, who noticed the beta version of the update before it was released.

WhatsApps are still waiting for the two biggest updates in the history of the messaging application, both of which are expected early next year.

The first is to connect to other messaging services offered by other Facebook-owned apps, including Instagram and Messenger.

This will mean that the conversations will happen seamlessly between people, no matter which applications they use to communicate.

Facebook confirmed its merger in January, arguing that aggregating the core infrastructure of message applications will create "best messaging experience" for its billions of users.

The second big update will see Facebook's recently announced Crypto Currency Libra introduced in WhatsApp, enabling users to make and receive single-button payments.

It is expected to start at some point in 2020, although no specific date has been set.
