Change of the passcode rather than using the phones same passcode, and chat hide feature
Dear whatsapp developers i m using whatsapp since past 6 years...seen many changes and evaluation from then....its all going seem less but there are few issues which i would address u....after enabling the touch-id in whatsapp app...security features increased and in my opinion it was necessary to do so...but pls dont use the same touch-id and passcodes which we have set fr our phne...its must be different as it will increase extra security and one more issue i need to address u is that while chatting or while lying on the whatsapp app....when i switch to notification center and when i come back to whatsapp app....there my screen turns white for few milliseconds which seems that it is slowing down as i m using iPhone 8 plus...and pls add the hide feature in whatsapp as hike is giving this feature....it is really necessary in my opinion...pls look after my concerns regarding this update.
Unable to update status
I am unable to update status on the app since 3 days now. The error showing is “something went wrong. Please try after 24 hours”. Even after trying after 24 hours, still getting the same error message. It feels very irritating to go through this. None to provide any solution to this problem. I have even mailed the whatsapp team to look into this regard but no one has even acknowledged yet or provided any solution to this. The app is so pathetic that I am unable to even backup my chat history on the app where it’s stuck on 53% and not moving a bit ahead since 2 days even though I have good internet connection. I don’t understand whom to contact or what to do with this problem. For an app with this huge base and backed by the tech leader like facebook, this is a worst service that the whatsapp has given. Having seen the jump of #signal app, it’s time to move and chuck whatsapp to their foot level. I will wait for another 24 hours to get this resolved or I’ll first make sure I along with my family member and friends to install signal. Time’s not far to see the downfall of whatsapp with such pathetic service. If you still wish to serve your users do address my and others who are going through this problem and resolve the issue immediately.
Need few more customisation and minor bug fixes for iOS
Hey WhatsApp team, few customisations are missing and I feel they might be useful for all of us… Note: I’m an iPhone user and I’m on iOS 15.2 1. Only blue colour was available for icons in bottom tab bar, some more colours would be appreciative 2. We can not shift the WhatsApp into dark mode .. to achieve this I need to enable to my mobile itself.. I personally iOS looks better in light mode and WhatsApp in dark mode 3. An issue I noticed today ( jan 12th 2022) extra long messages are not wrapping horizontally… we need to close and re open again to make this happen 4. Almost majority of the users use this app very frequently and I feel like events would be a great feature where we can add up to a limit.. and all get notified at once 5. As majority of the people are working from home it would be nice where we can share our screen ..not just for work.. even for movies 6. Sharing these complaints and feature requests via app would be great I hope these features are noteworthy and see these features with upcoming updates
