Facebook’s efforts to unify all its platforms into one was in talks from a long time and we had some idea that WhatsApp Status Updates will soon be Shared as stories on Facebook. So, finally, we are some traits of it in the latest WhatsApp update for Android. According to WABetaInfo, soon we are going to see two new features in WhatsApp for Android.

WhatsApp Share to Facebook Feature:
The Facebook story is the most loved feature of the platforms and many social media companies have copied this feature too. Moreover, “add to facebook story” button will appear only if you have the Facebook app installed in your mobile.
WhatsApp QR Codes Feature:
the second upcoming feature is QR codes, which is the same as Snapchat and Messenger identification method. This feature will allow you to navigate your profile and will generate a QR code associated with your phone number for your WhatsApp. So you can share the code on social media platforms so that people can contact you by just scanning the code.
These features are found in the beta version of WhatsApp 2.19.15, however, right now they are not available for users. Maybe they will make it available, once they are sure the feature is working correctly. So it’s not far away!
