    WhatsApp has been spotted with ShareChat video support for Android and iOS beta versions. What this means is that you can now watch ShareChat videos as a floating video in WhatsApp, something that has been there for YouTube and Facebook videos. As per WABeta Info, this was spotted in WhatsApp v2.20.81.3 beta for iOS and v2.20.197.7 beta for Android. In addition to this, the WhatsApp beta on iOS specifically hints that it may allow customisation of wallpapers in chats.

    Th report adds that not all users will see it right away but since it is there in the beta version, its just a matter of time before it reaches the final version and the masses.

    As for the multi-wallpapers feature in WhatsApp beta on iOS, the report adds that this is still under works and may not show in the next update. This feature will allow users to use different wallpapers in different chat windows. You may also be able to adjust the brightness of the select wallpapers.

    The instant messenger was recently reported to be working on expiring messages. In a separate post by WABetainfo, WhatsApp has made improvements to the feature and added separate panels that describe how the functionality works. In a previous blog post, the publication had noted that the company was implementing the expiring messages feature in the form of ‘on' and ‘off' option button with a one-line description explaining what the feature does.

    Now, the Facebook-owned messaging platform has refined this further and added a separate panel that explains what this feature does in detail before taking users to the window where they can actually send disappearing messages.
