WhatsApp web is updated with new features that revive the quick messenger web app from its nostalgic interface. WhatsApp focused this update on enabling the tool for editing images with extra filters attempting to send a media file, Techbooky writes.
WhatsApp web has reportedly been dormant from receiving tweaks for years — especially web clients, including Mac users. WhatsApp web has gradually evolved to a standalone quick messenger for web users until Facebook recently enabled multiple devices tied to an account.
The newly enabled image filter tools on the WhatsApp web depict there is parity with WhatsApp for mobile clients — both OS platforms now feature modern UI. For context, the previous UI for web clients has a green banner after you select an image or multiple images for your recipient.
In line with the image above, you would notice WhatsApp developers tweaked the old banner with new tools for adding filters and editing the selected image(s) for your recipient. For context, you will notice the previous UI for WhatsApp web only allows users to add captions.
Now, you can edit multiple media files before you send the media to your recipient. The new caption box interface for WhatsApp web has rounded edges that look new school. Next to the caption box is the button that activates View Once mode — the “1” button circled in a timer allows the media file you send to delete instantly after your recipient views it.
It is encouraging to participate with WhatsApp ephemeral concepts that is available for all OS platforms — with new features on both web and mobile clients, WhatsApp web appears to be in its prime. Web clients can now undo and redo buttons, another button that changes font, stickers button on the instant messaging platform.
Meanwhile, WhatsApp for the mobile client can only resize an image, add Emojis, add captions. We discovered this update in version 2.2130.9, the current WhatsApp web version. Techbooky suggests WhatsApp is likely to roll out this update for desktop apps soon.
The new WhatsApp web depicts the original instant messaging concept that allows users to send messages and media files in a blink. While WhatsApp rolls out this update for its global web clients, mobile users will receive the equal update later.
