Meta-morphosis of Facebook means this for WhatsApp users

According to WABetaInfo, the beta version of the application, the change owing to Facebook turning into Meta will be introduced in the stable version of WhatsApp

Mark Zuckerberg made a bold announcement about a change in this week. The company will now be called Meta. While the re-naming business is only limited to the parent company, it is bound to have some impact on the daughter company, WhatsApp. Earlier, while starting WhatsApp, the application mentioned ‘WhatsApp from Facebook’ at the start screen, now it will change to WhatsApp by Meta.

The new change has not been rolled out for all users. According to a report by WABetaInfo, the beta version of the application. The change is expected to soon be introduced in the stable version of the app.

There’s another “WhatsApp from Facebook” label in the app, on the settings page of the app. The label is now missing on the page for now.

The report mentions that some iOS beta testers may now be able to see the splash screen. The issue is expected to be fixed in the next beta update.

After announced this week that the brand that will gather Facebook itself, Messenger, WhatsApp, Instagram, and more will be called Meta, the company is now changing the footer of its apps to reflect that.

As spotted by WABetaInfo, with version of WhatsApp beta, when you open the app, it doesn’t show “WhatsApp from Facebook” anymore and it now reflects “WhatsApp from Meta.”

About a year ago, WhatsApp added the “from Facebook” brand when opening the app and it’s now changing that to reflect its goals of being a metaverse company.

The publication also notes that WhatsApp also removed the “WhatsApp from Facebook” footer in the settings as well.

When Mark Zuckerberg announced this change alongside its plan for a billion users in its metaverse in a decade from now, he said:

As part of this, it’s time for us to adopt a new company brand to encompass everything that we do. To reflect who we are and what we hope to build. I’m proud to announce our company is now Meta.

Still talking about small WhatsApp updates, this beta also brings the ability to rate messages received from business accounts.

According to WABetaInfo, “WhatsApp has developed this feature to help businesses improve their messages to customers. This means that they could be able to see general feedback about rated messages, but they cannot see who rated them and WhatsApp cannot see the content of the message. WhatsApp is using this technique to preserve your privacy, so the end-to-end encryption.”

Sangh parivar collected more than Rs 3,000 crores from Hindus as per media reports & gave that amount to a Sarkari Trust & a Sarkari Construction Committee to construct Ram Janma Bhumi Mandir.

Had Central or State Govt sanctioned Govt funds then they would have deserved credit.
