It was recently discovered that in iOS 8.4, Apple oddly enough decided to kill off the Home Sharing feature for music. We’re not sure why they decided to do that, but it seems that the removal is only temporary because according to Apple exec Eddy Cue, he tweeted that the feature will be put back into place come iOS 9.
According to Cue, “We are working to have Home Sharing in iOS 9.” iOS 9 is Apple’s upcoming major update to the iOS platform and is expected to be released in the fall of 2015, presumably alongside the new iPhones.

Last year Facebook announced that they would be acquiring WhatsApp for a whopping $19 billion. As it stands both services exist separate of each other, but if the rumors are to be believed, it seems that WhatsApp could slowly be gaining some of Facebook’s features in a future update.
