The Code Block tool can be a useful tool for professionals working in technical fields. It will allow them to communicate coding and programming via Whatsapp. Now sharing codes will get more convenient with the new feature. Techies will not have to go through weird displays of coding languages that are being shared on the messaging platform currently. This new tool aims to improve technical discussions, according to various reports.

The “Quote” feature allows users to mark a specific portion of the text. Right now we simply quote the whole text while replying, however, with this feature, we can be more specific with texts. This feature will come in handy with WhatsApp groups having large discussions over the app. Once, the feature will be available to users, they can highlight and reply to the specific text, making for a great leap in communications.

With listing features, users will be able to create a bullet list, just like we use note apps for listing our groceries items.

Note that the feature is under development and it will soon be made available to both Android and iOS users once it is tested.
