According to the latest statements of the company, WhatsApp will use the API to add support for Siri virtual assistant Cupertino.
Thus, the application can soon take advantage of the capabilities of Siri to perform the following actions:
Ask Siri to read messages we received.
Ask Siri to send a message to any of our contacts.
Ask Siri to make a voice call through the application.
As you know, Apple announced the opening of Siri to developers, but yes, it is important to note that this is not all, because currently only some applications (such as instant messaging) can make use of the API.
So, if we consider that the final version of iOS 10 coming early next month of September, most likely an update of WhatsApp adding these arrive later this month or early October news.
Finally, before the end of the article I feel obliged to say that I find it outrageous that from WhatsApp are considering the possibilities iOS 10 offers without having yet released a version for Apple Watch, is that if the rumors are in true, it probably see before the Apple Watch 2 WhatsApp working on our wrists.
