Meta-owned WhatsApp is rolling out two new changes which include a new chat share sheet and a redesigned emoji panel for the web users, WaBetaInfo reported. 

According to the app-tracking website, the two new features are available to some beta testers and will be rolled out to more people over the coming days. 

The instant messaging app continues to bring changes to its web version apart from Windows and macOS. It develops new features to enhance user experience.

WhatsApp has entirely revamped the chat share sheet, making it more compact and labelled each icon. 

The emoji panel has also been redesigned. It first covered the entire bottom of the screen but the latest update shows that it is now displayed separately and in a smaller size with the sticker and GIF tabs. 

WhatsApp has been enhancing the user experience by redesigning the interface. 

Windows native app updates

It previously brought two updates for the Windows native app by releasing a feature to keep messages from disappearing and a redesigned message menu with a reaction bar. 

The two features, named keep messages and redesigned message menu, were rolled out for some beta testers initially. 

Users are now provided with the ability to keep messages from disappearing. This feature is already available on mobile apps and the Desktop Electron version of WhatsApp.

This feature would prevent some messages from disappearing if they select the “keep” option available within the message menu.

“In case you decided to keep some messages from disappearing, they will be listed within the chat info screen,” said WaBetaInfo.

Every user will still have control over those messages. If someone doesn’t want to keep a message from disappearing, they can use the “upkeep” option.

Another new update is a button to quickly send a reaction. A new reactions bar has been included in the redesigned menu, improving the user interface.

Additionally, linked devices will now have access to the conversation lock feature. Users of WhatsApp will also soon have the option to tag their contacts in status updates.

Notably, WhatsApp users can link their devices to log in to the same account on different devices. However, several functions, such as conversation locks and status updates, are not accessible on the secondary devices.

Even if they are locked on the main conversations, anybody can still access your private chats on a connected device. WhatsApp is currently working on adding Chat Lock capability to connected devices in order to address this.

The chat lock feature on WhatsApp will soon be available on connected devices.

Prior to this, it was claimed that WhatsApp, which is owned by Meta, was developing new personalisation options for an iOS beta.

According to WABetaInfo, an update tracker portal for the instant messaging network, WhatsApp for iOS users will soon get the option to modify both the conversation bubble’s colour and the app’s primary colour scheme.

A feature that let beta testers choose the primary colour scheme of the WhatsApp iOS app from a selection of five colours was first tested back in January.

The instant messaging app is testing a feature that lets users change the colour of chat bubbles within conversations, though, in a new beta edition.

The goal is to construct the first lunar train system, which will enable safe, independent, and effective cargo transportation on the moon, according to robotics specialist Ethan Schaler of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California.

He went on, “The day-to-day functioning of a sustainable lunar base in the 2030s will depend heavily on a robust, long-lasting robotic transport system.”

The Flexible Levitation on a Track, or FLOAT, is the name of the proposed lunar rail system. According to NASA, the establishment of a railway system on the moon is “critical to the daily operations.”

According to the space agency, the primary objective of FLOAT is to offer transportation services in regions of the moon where astronauts are engaged in activities. To do this, cargoes of lunar soil and other materials will need to be transported to various regions of the moon.

Each robot will be able to transport cargo of various sizes and shapes at a pace of roughly 1 mph (1.61 km/h), according to Dr. Schaler.

Notably, NASA also declared new initiatives last month to create and test new vehicle models intended for moon exploration.
