Upcoming 6 New Features of Whatsapp Leaked
UPI-Based Money Transactions
Most awaited feature is the UPI or Unified Payment Interface that can reach millions of WhatsApp users in India. This facility will allow them to transfer money without any hassle. Now the company is in talks with the government about the UPI integration.
Live location sharing is another feature that was seen for the Whatsapp for iOS beta version earlier this year but has not yet been brought out to the public. With this feature, users can share live location for 1 minute, 2 minutes, 5 minutes or indefinitely.

YouTube Videos Will Play Directly In WhatsApp
The most recent feature on WhatsApp is the YouTube integration for the iOS beta version. The feature lets you view YouTube videos without leaving the app through a photo-in-picture mode.
Number change intimation to all your contacts
Earlier this year, it was reported that Whatsapp beta for Windows Phone came with a nifty feature which sends information to all WhatsApp contacts when a user changes their number, making the whole process less cumbersome. We are not yet to see a comprehensive rollout of the feature.
Message recall feature
This feature was first seen in beta version on iOS in December 2016. However, this feature still lets users return messages.
Edit ‘Sent’ Messages
This is much similar to ‘recall’ functionality. However, this will go a step further and allow users to edit specific parts of a message ‘sent’ instead of recalling the entire text. Users need to edit the messages before the receiver reads it. This feature was spotted in one of the WhatsApp betas back in January this year.
