What is the latest WhatsApp news?

It looks like a significant change is about to happen at WhatsApp, and this all seems to be aligning with the imminent entry into force of Europe’s Digital Markets Act (DMA).

In short, the app is preparing to let people message you from another app. At least, that’s the intention.

According to information released by the website Wired, WhatsApp’s engineering director, Dick Brouwer, stated that the company is ready to introduce this feature to its users.

"There is a real tension between offering an easy way to make this interoperability available to third parties while also preserving WhatsApp’s privacy, security and health bar. I think we are very happy with where we are."

Applications such as WhatsApp and Messenger will be required to open their messaging networks to third-party applications, as determined by the Digital Markets Law proposed by the EU.

As for Messenger, Meta is also preparing to allow other messaging applications to integrate their exchanges within its network.

At first, this would be an isolated experience in a separate tab called "third-party chats".

In this tab, there won’t be many restrictions: it will be possible to send text, audio, video, images and files between applications.

In conclusion, WhatsApp’s farewell to several iPhone, Samsung and LG models marks a turning point in the world of mobile technology.

Furthermore, it shows the importance of staying up to date not only in terms of software but also in terms of hardware. For many, however, this will be the beginning of a new era of communication.
