WhatsApp: Huge change coming to chat app soon

WhatsApp fans will soon be seeing a change coming into force and it could spark controversy.

WhatsApp users could soon see a shock change to the chat app.

WhatsApp is world’s most popular chat app with over 1.5billion users each and every month.

This year alone WhatsApp users have see plenty of changes with the introduction of stickers and group video calling among other new features.

And now WhatsApp users could be about to see arguably the biggest change to the Facebook owned chat app in years.

Whats new in 2019:

WhatsApp users are bracing themselves for the addition of adverts to the chat app in 2019.

Earlier this year it emerged that WhatsApp were planning on displaying adverts in status section.

The news emerged after WhatsApp co founder Brian Acton revealed he left Facebook over a disagreement on how to monetise WhatsApp.

The forty six year old claimed facebook co founder Mark Zurkerberg and other excutive wanted to send targeted adverts at users.

WhatsApp users will be seeing a big change come into force soon.

However this was not an approach Acton agreed with WhatsApp having prided itself for many years on being ad-free.

He said, “At the end of day i sold my company. I sold my users privacy to a larger benefit. I made a choice and a compromise. I live with that everday.”

Acton said facebook also wanted to sell businesses tools to talk to WhatsApp users something he also did not agree with.

Also added “Targeted advertising is what makes me unhappy.”

And in the aftermath of these comments a WhatsApp spokeperson said that the chat app would begin displaying adverts in its status feature next year.

Later on WhatsApp vice president Chris Daniels said, “We are going to be putting ads in Status.”

“That is going to be primary monetisation mode for the company as well as an opportunity for businesses to reach people on WhatsApp.

It has not been revealed when in 2019 WhatsApp will be roling out the status adverts.

This change mark a huge first for WhatsApp with chat app having prided itself on remaining ad-free. And a large number of fans on Twitter already hit out at the decesion. One fan tweeted,” WhatsApp Status will start showing ads from 2019. R.I.P WhatsApp.”

Another posted, “The moment i see an advertisement on my WhatsApp status i am uninstalling it.”

“Monetising every damn thing.”

blog post written by WhatsApp co founder Jan Koum on the chat app website explain the reason the co founder wnated to keep it ad-free.

The post was written prior to facebook acquisition at a time when WhatsApp was still a paid for service.

It said, ” These days companies know literlly everything about you, your friends, your interests and use it all to sell ads.”

“When we sat down to start our own thing together three years ago we wanted to make something that wasn’t just another ad clearinghouse.

We wanted to spend our time building a service people wanted to use because it worked and saved them money and made their lives better in a small way.

We knew that we could change people directly if we could do all those things. We knew we could do what most people aim to do every day avoid ads.

WhatsApp tips and tricks – Cool features you didn’t know existed.

No one makes up excited to see more advertising no one goes sleep thinking about the ads they ‘ll see tomorrow.

We know people go to sleep excited about who they chatted with that day (and disappointed about who the didn’t).

We want WhatsApp to be the product that keeps you awake and that you for in the morning.

No one jumps up from a nap and run to see an advertisement.”

WhatsApp tips and tricks – Cool features you didn’t know existed

WhatsApp is hugely popular and used across the globe by millions that harness it to send messages, memes, videos and images to their friends and family. Here is list of every cool features that can make your experience with the app even better.

WhatsApp is the most popular messaging service on the globe meaning it surpasses rivals such as Facebook Messenger, WeChat and Skype in terms of active monthly users.

October, 2018 WhatsApp was said to have 1.5 billion people using it every month.

One of the reasons for the apps laudable success is surely its regularly stream of updates that add new and exciting functions.

With that said, here is a list of the best features you can take advantage of on WhatsApp.

Watch video without leaving a chat:

WhatsApp was recently updated on Android to bring picture in picture viewing to users.

The feature was previously available on iOS handsets.

Picture in picture allows video to be consumed in a separate window, meaning you do not need to leave a chat in order to view it.

The functionally does not work with all videos with some YouTube content not complying with the feature.

However for the most part the functionality works well and allows users to move the floating video around the app to suit their preference.

More ways to express yourself:

Earlier this year WhatsApp introduced stickers as a new method to communicate with those closest to you.

The adorable icons are a great way to add even more diversity to chats.

Stickers are easily to use and can be accessed by pressing the features icon in the app.

“Whether with a smiling teacup or crying broken heart, stickers, help you share your feelings in a way that you cant always express with words.”

“To start we are launching sticker packs created by our designers at whatsApp and selection of stickers from other artists. To use stickers in a chat simply tap the new sticker button and select the sticker you want to share. You can add new sticker packs by tapping the plus icon.”

Face to face with those closest to you:

WhatsApp has vastly expanded its feature library this year with one of the most notable new additions being the introducing of group calling for video and voice.

The chatting app allow users to take part in group calls with up to four people.

While that figure is not high as Apple FaceTime feature that lets 32 people chat at once, WhatsApp offering is perfect if some of your friends use android device.

Explaining the feature WhatsApp stated, ” You can make a group call with up to four people total anytime and anywhere.”

“Just start a one on one voice or video call tap the new add participant button in the top right corner to add more contacts to the call.

Group calls are always end to end encrypted and we’ve designed calling to work reliably around the world in different network conditions.

WhatsApp allows users to take part in group calls with up to four people.

Changes to forwarded messages:

WhatsApp will now clearly highlight when message have been forwarded from other users.

A tag will be present that says, “forwarded”, making the user aware the message received has not come directly from the person they are chatting with.

WhatsApp will now clearly highlight when messages have been forwarded from other users.

New group chat features:

Earlier this year group chats received a new feature whereby only admins in a conversation could speak with each other.

Commenting on the function, WhatsApp said, “We are launching a new group setting where only admins are able to send messages to a group.

“One way people use groups is to receive important announcement and information, including parents and teachers at schools, community centers and non profit organisations. Introduced this new setting so admins can have better tools for these use causes.

To enable this setting, open “Group Info” tap Group Setting > Send Messages and select “Only Admins”.”

Location:

WhatsApp has two options when it comes to sharing a location with friends and family members.

Users have the choice to share their live location or current location.

The former will provide other real time movements for the time periods of either 15 minutes, one hour or 8 hours,

Meanwhile the later will display the location of the user and not update it based on movement.

Users have the choice to share their live location or current location on WhatsApp.

Location sharing can be accessed by pressing the paperclip icon in a chat and pressing “Location”.

In this post i am going to share full story of Oppo A37 charging flex connector repair. I this case we received Oppo A37 with MIC fault, Oppo A37 lower microphone was not working. but mic suddenly start working when we open two screws battery connector was tighten with these.

We shocked when we disassemble Oppo A37 board from display frame, because the other side female connector exactly below the battery connector was damaged badly. That was now easily available in market.

How and where we got broken connector?

I first tried search from old board, because i remembered that we have a Oppo A37 dead board in our dead board collection. so started search about it but shocked again when i see this also have lower pcb flex connector damaged.

Then we started search for Oppo A37 charging flex connector (female connector placed opposite side of battery connector) from damaged LCD’s and finally Samsung J5 LCD connector matched with Oppo A37 charging flex’s female connector on placed board.

Conclusion:

So we removed connector from damaged Samsung J5 display by heating it from below side. Then we used 30 watt soldering iron and soldered connector to Oppo board, that we collected from broke Samsung j5 display. That works perfectly on Oppo A37. You can watch picture gallery below.
