In its bid to get more uses than WhatsApp, Signal has integrated some former features. This move will gradually make it one of the best messaging apps in the world.
Signal adopts some of WhatsApp’s features

These new features include chat customization which includes a theme, size, and background. There is also increased support for business and group sections. However, most of these features are already available on WhatsApp which is going through some issues because of their new policy on privacy.
Part of Signal features will allow customers to change their wallpaper. This feature isn’t available on earlier versions but can be seen in the recently released beta version released on Monday. Another prominent signal feature from WhatsApp is setting up a shirt status in the user “about” page seen in the information page.
Users can also extend their video call limit which allows video calls for participation of up to eight users. Signal also allows the creation of stickers and pictures from its app.
Unique features integrated and many more to come
These stickers can be shared with contacts on your phone. However, Signal is not done yet, it recently announced that its forthcoming features will include encryption capabilities for the app which will consist of low data usage for calls as well as sharing group links to invite other users.
