WhatsApp has added three features to its web platform for the ease of users. The social media company took to Twitter to announce the new features included on WhatsApp Web: a desktop photo editor, preview links, and sticker suggestions.
The web platform has added the media editor feature to the web version of the app as well. The quality, which was earlier available only on the mobile version of WhatsApp, allows users to edit images and crop and rotate the pictures on the computer version of the app.
Talking about its latest updates, the sticker suggestion will give users the option to select the suitable sticker for their conversation while typing a message, according to the social media company. The update will solve the problem of people going through multiple tabs to find the correct sticker option for their conversation.
The company said that the feature was built with the consideration of the users’ privacy in mind, so “WhatsApp can’t see your searches, and your messages are always protected by end-to-end encryption.”
WhatsApp has also updated its link “preview feature on its web version, allowing people to see the full preview of the link being sent and gain more context about it before opening it.
According to media reports, the social media company is also set to remove the ‘Delete ‘or Everyone’ time limit on its platform. According to screenshots shared by WABetaInfo, the feature is still under development and will allow users to delete messages for an “undefined” period in the future.
Presently, users can only delete messages sent within the time limit of 4,096 seconds, or 1 hour, 8 minutes, and 26 seconds. It is unknown whether the new feature will allow for messages posted before the update to be deleted. The update is said to be found in the app’s Android Beta version 188.8.131.52, according to the source.
