According to Gadgets 360, WhatsApp Web and desktop apps are reportedly getting photo editing tools, a feature that has been present only in the mobile app till now. These tools will allow users to edit photos, with an additional option to add stickers, before sending them.
WhatsApp update tracker WABetaInfo has noted new editing tools on WhatsApp Web and desktop app. These editing options referred to as ‘Drawing Tools’ allow editing images before sending them from WhatsApp Web or desktop app. The mobile app has had image editing tools since the beginning. With the new Drawing Tools, users can add emojis or text to the image, and crop or rotate it, before sharing them.
Users need to make sure they are using the latest version of the web browser and WhatsApp desktop app in order to use photo editing tools called “drawing tools”. When the user uploads the image, a new drawing or editing tool will appear at the top of the WhatsApp page.
The tools can be seen on top after you select the image you’d like to share. The option to add text is still present at the bottom along with the ‘view once’ option. This feature may not be visible to all users right away. According to the publication, the feature will soon be visible to all users and they are recommended to update to the latest version of WhatsApp on Android, iOS, and desktop.
Unfortunately, WhatsApp web and desktop apps don’t yet offer the ability to add filters such as black and white or Chrome to photos. In addition, web users will still not be able to edit the video. That is, you can crop the video.
