A Few Adjustments That Most Users Actually Need

Just putting it out there, this app is easily one of the best out there but in terms of user convenience I feel some additions could be made.
1. Something has to be done about notifying the other person about a deleted message because most users feel it’s highly unnecessary and leads to conflicts at times.
2. Users should be allowed to have private locks for different private chats, entirely different from the app lock, because friends might know you phone password and might be able to access your private chats. This would do a whole lot of good
3. This has to be the single most important point, WhatsApp should please enable users choose who can text them. Let me break it down quick. Most users obviously have a lot of friends for but during a particular period we mightn’t feel like talking to everyone or maybe we just want texts from a few select friends. Now the point is that we want to be able to temporarily allow a few select friends text us without having to block the others. I feel a survey needs to be conducted to buttress my point. You’ll be surprised at the amount of people that want this.
4. Lastly, can we have an option to switch off whatever shows if we’re online or not? It’ll do us a world of good. Thank you!!!!

I would suggest whatsapp adds a feature that enables 2-3 different whatsapp number using only one WhatsApp on one phone. Just like Instagram, one can switch between accounts, it should be also possible to switch between different whatsapp numbers instead of getting another phone for another whatsapp line. This will really save people alot of stress of carrying different phones about because of 2 different whatsapp accounts. It will also help business owners who have several businesses and hence have multiple whatsapp accounts to be able to manage their businesses on just one phone. Instead of carrying different phones for different whatsapps.

Meanwhile, whatsapp is really a great app. I’ve been enjoying all of the latest updates. Kudos to you all!!! Wish i can give it more than 5 stars.

Pls, I write to suggest some certain features which should be added to WhatsApp upon creation of any group chat on WhatsApp a special feature which solemnly allow an admin of any group chat to block members from sending any sort of link, picture, nor Videos just us segregated but not fused together so an admin with his own discretion can allow members to partake in having to access any of this features and the disposal of others just as enunciated such features should be implemented on WhatsApp why? because, this would save the spamming of groups with phishing links and porn pictures nor video which some people usually use as an instrument to spam various group chat which as been designated for its purpose and contrary to the disturbances perpetrated by some WhatsApp users.
Thanks for your understanding WhatsApp team.
We the strong users of WhatsApp want WhatsApp to grow stronger in all ramifications.
