Now chat while you drive with Apple’s CarPlay feature on WhatsApp
Apple’s CarPlay feature has now reached the popular messaging app WhatsApp. The new incorporation will allow the iPhone users to use WhatsApp while on the go.
The new CarPlay feature lets users receive and send messages while driving without the need to involve Apple’s in-house virtual assistant Siri in the process. However, users can still use Siri to send messages and can ask the virtual assistant to read the received messages loud. Additionally, the CarPlay support is capable of dictating messages to Siri.
Furthermore, a dedicated WhatsApp icon will be present on the CarPlay dash interface to easily access the app. To recall, previously users could use WhatsApp while driving via Siri.
The new updated WhatsApp, version 2.18.2 is available to download via the App Store, however, the changelog doesn’t mention the CarPlay integration.
For those who have forgotten, WhatsApp recently introduced its standalone Business app which allows various businesses to interact with the customers with ease. The app, with an account listed as a Business one, comes with various features present in the original WhatsApp app, and new features such as Greeting Messages and Away Messages. Additionally, it supports Quick Replies feature.
