Although you already know that it is not our favorite application, WhatsApp is one of the most used messaging applications in the world. Since the app was bought by Mark Zuckerberg and company (pun intended), the platform has undergone a series of important changes. We liked some more, others less.

The change that we are going to talk to you about today may like most of you, as it aims to make the opening of any web link that we send through the application more comfortable thanks to Chrome Custom Tabs.

As they have learned since Android World, the new beta version of the application includes an internal browser that will work just like in other social networks, like Twitter or Telegram. In this way we can open any link from the own by WhatsApp, also introducing the advantages of Chrome, such as history, access to bookmarks, etc.

Although personally it is a tool that I do not use on any platform, some users may find it really useful, as it is a faster way to access content which is shared via WhatsApp.

In any case, to enjoy this new inclusion we will have to wait for it to reach the application in beta, As minimum. In my case, despite having this version and checking availability, I have not yet been able to access the internal browser, so it may be unavailable to you at the moment as well.

We will have to wait at least a few days until the new trial version is available to more users to be able to tell you any other details that the new version integrates. Stay tuned in the next few days because surely we have some other important news.
