WhatsApp is rolling out new features that change how you share photos on the messaging service. Think of it as giving your inner artist a chance to spruce up photos, Snapchat style.
With a tap of a button, the latest version of WhatsApp now allows finger-made drawings as well as emojis to be superimposed on photos taken from your phone’s camera or picture folder.
Additionally, the update adds front-facing flash so selfie-senders get their good side even in poor lighting, as well as the ability to zoom and switch between front and back cameras while recording videos in-app.
The features are practically muscle memory already for those familiar with Snapchat and other camera-heavy apps, but these are still welcome in WhatsApp and its billion-plus users who may not care to switch through multiple (possibly non-encrypted) apps just to draw a smiley face on their latest picture.
WhatsApp’s new camera features are out today for Android phones, while iPhone owners will have to hold tight just a tad longer for the update to go live on iOS.
