WhatsApp Web has been the same since its announcement in January and it never matured from its hack like feature. It was simply a way to respond to your WhatsApp messages from Chrome browser on your computer, that’s it. It did nothing more.
According to AndroidPolice, WhatsApp is introducing backend update that brings some of the key mobile features to the desktop client. Clicking on your profile picture now lets you change it and a small edit icon has been added next to Status, which allows users to instantly share what they are feeling right from WhatsApp Web.
The overflow for chat settings has been tweaked as well. The new overflow shows actions to delete and archive one-on-one chat and mute, delete or exit group chats.
WhatsApp has introduced new big red icons that make it easy to delete chat or exit group without a need to pick your phone and also it is now possible to change group image and status.
