WhatsApp To Introduce New Camera, Photo Editing Feature
According to reports, the widely used messaging service WhatsApp, which is owned by Meta, is developing a new feature that will enable users to respond to messages sent in the iOS announcement group.
The Meta-owned platform intends to work on an in-app banner to warn users when an update is available that offers message reactions within the announcement group, based on a report by WABetaInfo, a website that analyzes WhatsApp.
To utilize the future functionality, users will reportedly need to upgrade their software from the App Store or the TestFlight app.
Additionally, the source indicates that this planned feature is now being worked on and will probably be made available on the iOS application soon.
In the meantime, WhatsApp is also making a new camera available to some beta users. You can now capture a movie in camera mode with only one tap thanks to the new hands-free feature.
A report claims that the camera has been revamped to enable quick switching to video mode, eliminating the need to press and hold to shoot videos.
With the help of this function, WhatsApp has finally made recording videos easier. Additionally, while recording, you may now move from the front to the back camera or vice versa.
The source also stated that after installing this release candidate, everyone will have access to the new camera option, which some beta testers had previously been allowed to utilize.
All bug fixes and performance enhancements from the earlier 2.23.2 beta releases are also included in this upgrade.
A new text editor for the drawing tool is also being developed by the instant messaging programme. It will acquire new features like flexible text alignment, altering the text backdrop, and changing fonts.
Users will be able to change text alignment with the feature. It will enable users to arrange their text so that it complements the structure of the image.
