WhatsApp is working on a new and interesting feature for Android users that will soon notify them of all the new updates they should be aware of!

Till now, the official news or information about the upcoming features of WhatsApp was shared on the company’s official profile Twitter or on its blog post. But now, WhatsApp is working on a new feature that lets you receive localized in-app announcements for new features within the app itself.

In addition, this WhatsApp chat will also send you tips and tricks to improve your experience with WhatsApp. In addition, it will share information to know more about privacy and security. Like every other chat in WhatsApp, this chatbox will also be end-to-end encrypted so that the messages cannot be intercepted by third parties. However, you should note that this will be a read-only chatbox, which means you won’t be able to reply. The WhatsApp chat box will be similar to other messaging apps such as Telegram and Signal, where users get updates through the official channel.
If you don’t want to receive messages about new updates and tips from WhatsApp, you will be able to block this chat in the future. Sadly, this is under development and when it will hit your WhatsApp chats is unknown at the moment. However, WabetaInfo reported that this chat appears automatically when you receive the first message from WhatsApp.
