Cross-Platform Messaging May Be Added To WhatsApp To Comply With EU Regulations; Full Details

<p>A new third-party chat function for Android phones is apparently being developed by WhatsApp, which has been adding a ton of new features and will enable users to connect with one another even if they are using other programs. The Meta-owned instant messaging service intends to roll out this new functionality in order to adhere to the new, more stringent EU laws.<img decoding=”async” class=”alignnone wp-image-174956″ src=”” alt=” download 4 3″ width=”1326″ height=”871″ srcset=” 277w,×99.jpg 150w” sizes=”(max-width: 1326px) 100vw, 1326px” title=”Cross-Platform Messaging May Be Added To WhatsApp To Comply With EU Regulations; Full Details 18″></p>
<p>For instance, a person might use the Signal app to chat with a WhatsApp user even if they don’t have a WhatsApp account. Shortly after the European Commission determined that Meta complies with the requirements for “gatekeeper” designation under the EU’s Digital Markets Act (DMA), which mandates that messaging applications like WhatsApp allow interoperability by March 2024, the feature was added. According to the report, the feature is still being created and is not yet complete; as of right now, users cannot access it and it looks to be empty.</p>
<p>According to the article, WhatsApp needs six months to make the app compliant with the new rules in order to continue offering its interoperability service in the European Union. Whether this feature will ultimately be accessible in countries outside of the EU is yet uncertain.</p>
<p>A “filter groups chat” for Android is reportedly being developed by WhatsApp in the meanwhile to provide users greater control over their conversations and make it easier to organize and prioritize their messages. Thanks to the new functionality, users will be able to acquire a list of their groups by removing individual conversations.</p>
<p>In order to more clearly differentiate between individual and group conversations, users will also note that the Personal category—which formerly housed groups and communities—has been renamed Contacts. The new “Contacts” filter, however, will only show certain talks.</p>
