Some really great news is on its way for the Android Whatsapp users who always complained that Whatsapp wasn’t offering various cool features which were offered by its rivals like Snapchat. It seems Whatsapp has made its mind resolve and address all these complaints and requests as is clearly evident from its latest move of bringing the 6-second GIF support or the voicemail feature.
In the latest reports that are coming thanks to the various Whatsapp Beta testers, Whatsapp may soon bring two more very interesting features to its platform. The first and foremost is the front flash support for the selfie lovers. Even Whatsapp seems to reckon the fact that the number of smartphones with a front LED flash is on the rise and this feature will be an industry standard in the coming days.
Whatsapp has added this selfie flash feature to the latest beta version (2.16.264) of its Android app. The camera interface of Whatsapp in this beta build includes a flash button even when it is in selfie-mode for the devices that support this feature.
The second interesting feature that has made its way into this beta build is the doodling feature. This feature seems to be inspired from Snapchat, but nevertheless, the fans should rejoice as it was much awaited. This feature allows users to doodle over photos taken from the built-in camera of WhatsApp. You’ll find a pencil icon on the top once you tap on the inbuilt camera button. This will allow you to add text, crop or add emoji to the pic. Whatsapp has even brought big emoji and stickers finally on this beta build.
Which of these features would make it to the public release build remains to be seen, but in the meanwhile, you can try out these cool new features by enrolling by becoming a Whatsapp beta tester yourself. Click here to become a Whatsapp beta tester.
