<p>The New Third-Party Chats feature on WhatsApp<br />
The beta version of WhatsApp is now being used to test the third-party chat capability. According to WABetaInfo,</p>
<p>According to WABetaInfo, users will have the opportunity to enable third-party support for their accounts via a new section that WhatsApp is testing in a future version. Thanks to this feature, users will be able to chat others outside of WhatsApp. It is possible for third-party applications to use an alternative end-to-end encryption method, even if compatible messaging systems need end-to-end encryption. As a result, these discussions will show up in a different inbox under the chats tab. WhatsApp also cautions users to be careful while chatting with people in third-party conversations since frauds and spam can be more common in these settings when the user’s identity and picture are disguised. Furthermore, it is likely that third-party applications handle data differently than WhatsApp since they are subject to their own regulations.</p>

<p>Users may get the following advantages from this feature:</p>
<p>Enhanced communication flexibility: WhatsApp users will be able to connect with friends and colleagues who use other applications more easily since they may talk with each other using several messaging platforms.<br />
Better user experience: Without having a WhatsApp account, someone using another messaging app may send messages to a WhatsApp user thanks to the interoperability function. This implies that users may continue to converse with people on WhatsApp and keep using their favorite messaging service.<br />
User control: In accordance with Article 7 of the rules, users will need to actively activate the interoperability service and have the choice to decline it. Users are guaranteed control over their privacy settings and communication choices thanks to this.<br />
WhatsApp’s move toward interoperability is a significant step toward adhering to EU regulations and providing users with more flexible communication options. Users in the European zone will be able to chat with others on the messaging service using a range of messaging applications, even if they do not have a WhatsApp account. It is important to keep in mind that customers have the option to opt out of this feature, as specified in Article 7 of the laws, which requires them to explicitly activate the interoperability service.</p>
