California, 29th December 2023: In a move set to revolutionize virtual communication, WhatsApp has unveiled its latest beta version, 184.108.40.206, exclusively for iOS users. The update introduces a game-changing feature that allows users to share audio and video seamlessly during video calls, enhancing the overall user experience.
According to information sourced from WABetaInfo, a platform specializing in WhatsApp updates, the new feature is an extension of the existing screen-sharing functionality. Users can now share audio content during video calls, providing an immersive and dynamic environment for communication.
The feature is activated when the screen-sharing function is turned on during a video call. WhatsApp’s screen-sharing feature initially allowed users to share video content with other participants in a call. With the latest update, audio sharing is seamlessly integrated, allowing all participants in the video call to hear the shared audio.
At present, this groundbreaking feature is accessible only to select TestFlight users on the iOS platform. However, industry insiders speculate that the company is gearing up to roll out this feature on other platforms shortly.
How the Feature Works: A Step-by-Step Guide
To utilize this cutting-edge feature, users need to follow a simple step-by-step process:
1. Initiate a Video Call: Start a video call with the intended participants.
2. Activate Screen Sharing: Enable the screen-sharing feature during the video call.
3. Play the Desired Video: Once the screen-sharing is active, users can play the desired video file they wish to share.
4. Seamless Transfer of Content: WhatsApp will seamlessly transfer the screen content along with the audio, allowing all participants in the video call to experience the shared audio and video simultaneously.
It’s important to note that this feature is exclusive to video calls and does not apply to audio calls. The update is anticipated to bring a new dimension to virtual communication, providing WhatsApp users with enhanced ways to connect and share content in real time.
