Delhi : The 'screen-sharing' tool has recently begun to roll out on WhatsApp, in addition to a host of other new features that have been added recently. As of this writing, Android beta testers may access the new functionality along with a new location for tabs within the bottom navigation bar. In a video call, the new feature will make it simple for the user to share their screen, exactly like we can in Google Meet and Zoom meetings, according to a report from WABetaInfo.

This new functionality won't be available on older Android versions, and it must be noted that it might not function during lengthy group calls. The material that has been presented on the user's screen will not be accessible to the receiver if they are using an older version of WhatsApp, it has been further noted.

Users must provide permission to share the information on their screen in order to make this function available, the article claims. Some users may also notice a few small changes to the new bottom navigation bar after installing the most recent version of WhatsApp beta.

Particularly, the bottom navigation bar now includes several tabs in a different sequence. According to the complaint, some users now have Chats, Calls, Communities, and Status listed under the bottom navigation bar. According to the article, WhatsApp is also working on a feature dubbed "WhatsApp usernames" that would let users choose unique usernames for their accounts.

With the new feature, users will have the ability to select a distinctive and memorable username, doing away with the need to identify contacts merely by phone numbers. Additionally, the business may let customers contact other users inside the app by merely inputting their usernames, without needing to know their phone numbers.
