Now, WhatsApp lets you write, draw, and add emoji to photos and videos. WhatsApp will shortly look more like Snapchat.
On Monday, The WhatsApp messaging app launched a set of new camera features that allow you to add Snapchat-like drawing, text and emoji to your photos and videos, and use the flash on the front-facing camera “so you can take perfect selfies.”
According to WhatsApp blog spot,” WhatsApp’s new camera features, you can now write or draw on photos and videos, as well as add emoji to express yourself.”
The WhatsApp update is now started to the Android users, and for iPhone users it will be available soon, as said by company.
When you capture a new photo or video or share one that’s already on your phone within the app, you’ll automatically see the new editing tools. For better Visual Communication use this editing tool you can draw, put emoji and also adding the text too, and change the color and font style of the captions.
The WhatsApp camera feature now also supports the front-facing flash so you can take the perfect selfies. This feature will brighten up your screen and improve the quality of your photos, in low light and at night.
WhatsApp have also added a handy Zooming feature for recording videos –just slide your finger up and down to zoom in and out. Double tap on the screen to quickly exchange between front and rear facing cameras.
Though the new camera features are attractive simple and about the similar what you would find in many messaging apps like, Facebook messenger, Snapchat, it’s an interesting move for WhatsApp, which hardly ever adds important new features to its app.
Snapchat has 150 million daily users, with 60 million of them in the U.S. and Canada. But WhatsApp has more than 1 billion monthly users scattered all over the developing markets of the world. Many of those countries don’t see much Snapchat acceptance, so these people might not connect these creative tools with Snapchat. As a replacement for, they might simply see this update as a big improvement to WhatsApp. Facebook Messenger added support for these creative features in 2014.Instagram’s users had been able to do these since the release of Instagram Stories.
