WhatsApp beta for Android introduced a Snapchat-like feature that allows users to write and draw on images.
(CCM) — WhatsApp has rolled out a new feature in its Android beta version that includes the ability to draw and write on images along with a front-facing flash, which helps take photos during low-light situations. The additional editing tools pop up after clicking the picture from the smartphone's front camera. The artistic ‘T’ button and the pencil allow users to scribble on the photo, and there is a color pallet atop the screen. A similar feature — but by a different name — is also available on Instagram and Snapchat. Both features are only available for Android's front camera.
The instant messaging service has recently introduced bulk forwarding of copied messages and content. To use all of the features in the beta version, a user must first register for Google Play’s beta testing program and download the latest available version of WhatsApp. There is also an APK file available as an alternate method. WhatsApp's is also currently working on GIF image support and video calling features, which are likely to roll out by year-end.
