For instance, you will be able to control some of the features directly from the screen of your phone. The messenger has been upgraded in such a way so as you will get an easier access to it. In addition to it, the voice commands will be working for navigating WhatsApp. Now, with the help of your voice, you will be able to switch on the functions of reading messages as well as sending new ones.

Needless to say, this feature is making the system useful for people with eyesight conditions.
Now, you will be able to customise this functionality by mixing it with gaze detection.
