WhatsApp Update Brings New Photo Editing Tools and Camera Features

WhatsApp Camera UI

WhatsApp today introduced a slew of new features that lets one customise and enhance photos before sharing them with their friends and family over it. The new features will allow WhatsApp users to doodle on photos, add text or emoji on them to express themselves better.

The new photo editing tools from WhatsApp will automatically show up when you select or click a photo/video to share it on WhatsApp.

In addition to the new editing tools, WhatsApp now allows you to zoom in and out while recording videos using a simple slide of your finger. You can now also quickly switch between the front and rear cameras by double tapping on the camera viewfinder.

When you capture a new photo or video or share one that’s already on your phone, you’ll automatically see the new editing tools. Whether you’re drawing a big red heart to show how much you miss someone or adding your favorite emoji – sometimes a picture really is worth a thousand words. Try adding text too, and change the color and font style.

WhatsApp will be rolling out these new camera features to its iPhone client soon, with the update for Android app going live from today itself.
