The change log for the Signal update for Apple’s iPhone indicates that a new setting is now available to reduce data usage for Signal calls. This should be useful in case you use Signal to make calls, while on a 3G or 4G network, or even a not very fast Wi-Fi. Attachment downloads now get the pause and resume feature, which means you can choose when to download a large attachment that someone may have shared on Signal. Signal also claims to have further improved image compression and quality algorithms, which means image quality will not be lost when shared to Signal. On iPhone, Signal chats will now be part of the share sheet on iOS for iPhone, when you want to share something from another app. Chat backgrounds were also introduced, something rival that WhatsApp has had for quite some time. The Info section has also been expanded, while in chat list previews, you can now see the sender’s name in group chats to help you decide which threads to open and reply first.
For Android phone users, Signal is currently in version 5.2.3 and the latest update for the app has added new features and bug fixes. Improvements have been made to the status bar which now appears only when you need it. There are also changes to the way your contacts’ profile photos are displayed in the Signal app with the ability to choose the system profile photos set in the phone contacts or choose their latest Signal profile photos. In a video call, you can touch your face to get a full screen view of how others will see you. the Signal update for Android also adds the setting for less data usage during calls.
A few days ago, Signal for iPhone had received the update to version 5.2. This update has expanded the Signal Group Calls functionality to include 8 participants, up from the previous 5. If you want to share something from another app, you can now do it with multiple chats or contacts at once. There will now also be an optional shortcut to enable a shareable group link when you create a new group. The new Signal update for the iPhone also adds the ability to open attachments within the app itself. We’ve also made changes to how your contacts’ profile photos are displayed in the Signal app. There are also improvements to the video quality and size of the videos shared on the platform. There is also a specific update for Apple iPad users – the latest version of Signal eliminates the bug that prevented iPad users from tapping the Send option when sharing content from other apps. For iPhone and iPad users, there is also a bug fix that now fixes the problem of WebP images not transferring correctly in chats when using iOS 14.
