Recent enhancements to the application

Uncertainty surrounding interoperability

By the time of writing, It is still uncertain how far will Meta pursue the interoperability and not all the features which were observed in beta testing may make it to the official app. 

By increasing interoperability, Meta might prioritize other developments which are based on feedback and strategic objectives of the user.

Response to Digital Markets Act (DMA) Regulations

In response to Europe's Digital Markets Act (DMA) regulations, the instant messaging platform is reportedly developing a new chat interoperability feature which could let users send messages to third-party applications like Telegram. The move has been considered as a proactive measure to comply with DMA regulations, which require large companies and facilitate communication between various messaging apps within a specified timeframe.

WhatsApp's development of a third-party chat feature

The platform has been actively developing a new segment which is dedicated to third-party chats, currently accessible in the WhatsApp beta version 2.24.5.18. As per the WABetainfo report, the feature has been designed as an opt-in functionality, which means the user will need to manually activate it to use it.
