There are a few new features in Signal Instant Messenger that everyone should be aware of! Both iOS and Android users will benefit from the introduction of the latest improvements. In addition to bug fixes, there are also a few new features that NextPit would like to show you below.
- The iOS version is now more energy efficient.
- iOS users can now report messages as spam and block them.
- Cosmetic improvements for Android and iOS.
Similar to other messengers, Signal tries to keep its users happy and satisfied with new improvements to the app. Earlier this month, Signal allowed us to listen to voicemails at double or half speed – a feature that recently made its way to main competitor WhatsApp in a similar fashion. Now there are even more optimizations to enjoy:
Several improvements for Signal on iOS
A few days ago, the “secure messenger”, as it rightly calls itself, followed suit and offered improvements for those who use Signal Messenger on iOS 14.5 or later. For example, the developer claimed to have improved battery life while using the app by changing the way notifications are handled. It would take some time before normal Signal users can determine if this claim is true or just a wooden coin.

Signal is also continuing its efforts to crack down on unsolicited messages. If you receive spam messages, you can now report them as spam directly by tapping on “Block”. Other changes in the iOS version are mainly cosmetic: every time you receive, send, select, and reply to messages, there are new animations for you.
Android: design improvements
There’s not much to say about the Android version, but at least this time Signal has tried to polish up its instant messaging app a bit. The selection bar with reactions to messages has been optimized. Signal also took a look at the conversation settings and offered a completely new layout with new animations. That way, you should be able to see all the important details about your contacts at a glance.
Here’s a question for everyone: Have you noticed the new features? Let us know in the comments and also tell us which features you would like to see to make Signal a serious WhatsApp alternative that you would consider.
