WhatsApp Channels previously only allowed one admin, which was the owner, to manage the community. Now, with a new TestFlight beta update, Meta has evolved WhatsApp channels. Owners can add additional admins easily, to assist with the management process of their WhatsApp Channels.
WhatsApp has added a secret code feature. First, you can lock your chats with a password, by utilizing the previously introduced 'chat lock feature'. Then, after setting up 'secret code', you gain an additional layer of security for your chats. Once its working, you will need to enter your secret code in the search bar of WhatsApp, to see your locked conversations. Then, you need to enter your password as well to start chatting. A highly appreciated and overkill privacy feature!
With WhatsApp's 'view-once' feature, you could send and receive photos and videos that could only be viewed once by the recipient.

Now, Meta is adding the view-once messages feature back to WhatsApp for Windows & macOS applications. This also includes the WhatsApp web clients and the rollout has already begun.
