The "WhatsApp" app has announced a set of fun new features, including "QR codes" for adding contacts, stickers, and dark mode for computers, according to the British newspaper "Daily Mail".

The Facebook platform, which has more than two billion users worldwide, facilitates adding a contact with unique QR codes for each user.
The dark mode - the most requested WhatsApp feature - now extends to computers after it has been introduced to devices running iOS and Android.

Also, a new set of animated stickers will make interactivity on the chat platform "more fun and expressive."

The WhatsApp application also facilitates participation in group video calls of eight or fewer users by providing a one-click video call icon. It also introduces its Status feature - which allows users to share text, photos, videos and GIF updates that disappear after 24 hours - to KAIOS, an operating system developed in Hong Kong.

The app featured new features, which will appear on the platform in the next few weeks, in a video.

The app, which was bought by Facebook in 2014 for about $ 19 billion, said in a post that WhatsApp is already being used and loved by more than two billion people around the world.

"While our focus remains on providing a simple, reliable and private way for people to chat with friends and family, we also continue to move forward in designing our products to ensure that WhatsApp remains the most beneficial way for anyone, anywhere to communicate," the statement continued.

"Today, we are excited to confirm some of the new features that will be introduced in the next few weeks," he added.

The application pointed out, that one of the most prominent new features will be "QR codes" to add another number and username.

Usually, when WhatsApp users want to add new contacts, they must type in the number and put the username and save it.

Although this is not a major effort, WhatsApp makes the process easier by distributing the QR codes to each user.

And when users meet a new person, they will be able to scan the “QR” code using their smartphone’s camera. This will automatically find the WhatsApp user name and number, which users can click to add to their contacts.

Quick access to the video calls of eight people will also help users of the application during the Corona Virus pandemic, to keep in touch with friends and colleagues.
