The WhatsApp messaging platform announced new features for the WhatsApp web.
âWe’ve made some updates to the way you chat,â WhatsApp tweeted from its official Twitter account.
New features include a desktop photo editor, sticker suggestions, and link previews.
The new desktop photo editor will allow users to edit images while sending them via WhatsApp on the web. Users can crop their photos, add stickers, and more. Previously, the photo editing option was only available on mobile.
Desktop photo editor
Now you can add stickers and text or crop and rotate your photos from any WhatsApp screen, big or small, âhe said.
The new sticker suggestions will allow users to find relevant stickers as they type. âIt’s like the emoji suggestions only better,â WhatsApp said.
Users who want to add stickers to their conversation often have to go through multiple tabs to find the right sticker that can disrupt the flow. The feature is intended to help resolve this issue.
The feature was designed with privacy in mind, WhatsApp said, adding that it won’t be able to see user searches and personal messages are still protected with end-to-end encryption.
Link preview functionality
It also introduced a new feature of preview links. Users will be able to see the full link preview when sending via WhatsApp Web. This gives more context to the sender and recipient of the link on the platform.
âNow you will know what you click. Share news, videos or that funny Tweet including preview, âhe said.
