Since these features have been enabled for testing, it will most likely push out a stable WhatsApp build in the coming future. And iPhone users could be the first ones to receive such changes.
Meanwhile, WhatsApp has also started testing out its new multi-platform system deature which has been tipped to allow users to use the same account and share the chat history on iOS and Android. In a nutshell, users will be able to run the same account on multiple devices simultaneously. Once the feature is enabled, users can use their WhatsApp account on the iPhone and iPad together.
Similarly, they will be able to use their same WhatsApp account on two different Android devices simultaneously. In short, they need not log out from one device to log in on another device. There is still no cross-platform backup feature yet.
Hopefully, the new features of WhatsApp will amuse it's users soon.
