WhatsApp’s camera update lets user draw and add text over the images

With over a billion users, WhatsApp is the most widely used chat app at present. Not just that it is also one of the simplest apps. It seems the Facebook-owned company has been on a roll to keep its reach intact. WhatsApp has released an update that lets user draw or add text over the images clicked by the app’s camera.

User can even add emojis over the photos and can automatically see the new editing tools when capturing a new photo or video or share one that’s already on their phone. The new editing tools include a new pencil tool and T button. Alike Snapchat, these tools are used to scribble or draw on photos clicked by the app’s camera.

Users will now also find a front facing flash when clicking selfies from the WhatsApp’s camera. Please note that this update is only for the WhatsApp’s camera and not the phone’s camera. When clicking photos, a flash-like effect is seen on the screen. Phones that do not have a front facing flash will use display panel for the effect.

WhatsApp is the most popular chat app in the world and has over 1 billion monthly active users. The company recently also released the voicemail feature for its iOS and Android users. The feature allows to send a voicemail to a WhatsApp contact if he/she fails to take the WhatsApp call for any reason. Once enabled, the feature will allow people to leaves voice messages. If a person calls someone on WhatsApp and the call is missed or rejected, the app gives three options to the user: call again, cancel and voice message.

The call again feature allows the person to call back and tapping on “cancel” closes the window, which is seen after the call is missed. The “voice message” allows a users to send the message. To do so a user has to press the record button, speak the message, remove fingers from the screen and the message is sent to the intended WhatsApp user.
