Huge warning for WhatsApp users – billions are getting big app changes
WHATSAPP is working on a major update that will change the drawing tool.
You may not have used it before – but it’s a really handy part of WhatsApp.
It appears when you send a photo on WhatsApp and select the edit option.
In the current version, you can draw lines on the image and even pixelate parts of it.
But the sniffer dogs on WABetaInfo have investigated the WhatsApp Beta app and found some changes that are being tested.
The changes are “in development” so no one can use them yet.
But they will arrive in beta soon.
The first new feature is the ability to quickly switch between fonts by tapping the options above the keyboard.
This makes changing fonts much easier.
The second function allows you to change the alignment of text.
So in the future, you can align text to the left, center, or right.
Lastly, you can change the text background.
This means you can choose a different background color to ensure the text is clearly legible.
It’s not exactly clear when this new feature will be available to everyone.
If you want to try it before everyone else, you’ll need to sign up for the WhatsApp beta.
You can find out how by following our guide below.
