Facebook-owned WhatsApp has started rolling out an update for its iOS app. The update introduces three new features – Album, Filters and Reply shortcut.
The 3 New features will work as follows:
The Album feature will enable the users to organize images in a better way. When users send or receive a collection of five or more photos/ videos, they’ll automatically be grouped together as an album, creating a tile display within the messages. Tapping on an album will allow the users to see the included photos and videos in full-screen.
The Filters functionality will let users add filters to their photos, videos, and GIFs, directly from the app’s camera. All they need to do is click a picture (or select one already saved on their smartphone) and swipe up to pick a filter. There are five options to choose from, including Pop, Black, and White, Cool, Chrome and Film.
Reply shortcut is designed to make it easier for the users to reply to WhatsApp messages. They just need to swipe right on any message and start composing the response.
