Whatsapp is soon launching a feature which allows the users to edit their pictures either send or receive. Currently, WhatsApp doesn’t provide this feature. But early this feature will be launched. From now on, users can use the Inbuilt editing app and need not install any other app for editing their pictures
Whatsapp is testing this feature both on Android and ios. This feature will help both the users have access to this feature. As of now, WhatsApp doesn’t provide this feature but, the photos from your media file can be cropped and sized. Additionally, filters to the pictures captured on WhatsApp can be applied.
The upcoming feature will be useful for quick edits whenever you get an image in a chat and what to forward it with some basic editing or by writing some text on it. The feature is already part of the beta variant of WhatsApp on both Android and iOS and should roll out in the coming weeks. WABetaInfo spotted the highlight.
The ‘Edit’ button gives users the editing tools that precisely the same to what you find right before sending an image to a recipient—you get to crop, add text and doodle on the image. The only difference here is that you can now edit photos that you have received or already sent to someone right from the application.
As of now, when someone sends you a bunch of images together, WhatsApp bundles them to show it as an album, with a download icon on top, which automatically downloads all the media files at once. However, per the change, iOS users will soon see the total size of the media files, and the number of images and videos in the album, so that users can decide beforehand if they want to download the full record or not
