WhatsApp is one of the most popular messaging apps on the planet, and for iOS users the app has been updated to add a few new tricks.

WhatsApp has confirmed that the latest app update will bring a host of new features, including camera filters, albums, and even reply shortcuts to streamline conversations. To start, the Albums feature aims to make it easier to collect a group of images sent your way. Specifically, the new feature will automatically group images and videos into a specific album, as long as they are sent in a group of four or more. This will create a tile display within your message, and tapping on the album will open it full screen.

Now, within the camera feature within the app, you can add filters to photos, videos, and even GIFs. And, finally, reply shortcuts make it possible to quickly swipe to the right from a notification and quickly start typing your reply.

The WhatsApp update with these new features is rolling out now, and a link to download the app is available below.
