It is now possible to insert subtitles when sharing media in the app.

This includes images, videos, GIFs, and documents.

So if you have an image with a caption and you forward it, you can keep the message as you forward it — as discovered by detectives at WABetaInfo.

And the same goes for other types of media: you don’t lose the caption when forwarding.

To get the change, you need to check your phone for updates.

Make sure you have the latest version of WhatsApp installed.

Then go into a chat and try forwarding a photo with a caption.

If the caption can be kept, you know the feature is active on your phone.

Don’t panic if it doesn’t work right away.

Sometimes it can take a few days (or even weeks) for major WhatsApp changes to fully roll out.

This feature has been tested in WhatsApp beta for a while.

If you want to try WhatsApp features before everyone else, you can join the beta to test upcoming changes.
