WhatsApp could offer interconnectivity with other applications

Information leaked by the WABetaInfo portal suggests that Meta would be working on a function to allow users to receive and send messages from other applications without having to create an account in them

Information recently leaked by the specialized portal WABetaInfo suggests that one of the next WhatsApp functions could be aimed at interoperability with other applications, such as Signal or Telegram, its competitors.

According to the platform, Meta, the company owned by Mark Zuckerberg, is working on this new function, which will allow WhatsApp users to send and receive messages from other apps without having to open an account in them.

Without a doubt, the most used text messaging in the world today, seeks to offer a more versatile and integrated service.

As some media outlets have reported, the function to send and receive these messages to other apps was already found in a recent beta version of WhatsApp for iOS.

The measure would seek to comply with the new Digital Markets Law (LMD) of the European Union, which precisely establishes that large technology companies must offer users the possibility of communicating with each other from different applications.

WhatsApp is not the exception to the rule, and must comply with the EU requirements. At the moment, there is no detailed information about the WhatsApp update. What was reported by the WABetaInfo portal last week is that the function was detected through the TestFlight beta program for Apple’s mobile operating system, in WhatsApp version

There has been speculation about the possible release date of the update with the new WhatsApp feature for March of this year.
