Checkout These 5 Lovely Whatsapp Updates That Will Interest You in Latest V2.16.256

Whatsapp is doing everything possible to maintain and keep the pace with other IM apps by frequently adding new features via updates. Over the last few months, the world's largest messenger platform has included many features ranging from text formating (italics, bold, strikethrough), quote, sending documents, quoting chats and lots more.

Although people are still demanding for whatsapp to increase group membership limit as the current 256 limit is not enough especially when Telegram offers more.

In this post, I will show you the latest features of Whatsapp in the Beta stage.

1. Front Facing Flash:
There is a stylish method to illuminate the screen whenever you try taking a selfie from whatsapp. The screen will light up white to brighten your environment. This feature is handy especially in dark areas.

2. One Finger Video Zoom
Recording and capturing videos on whatsapp is made easier with the new "one finger zooming" feature. You just need to slide your finger up and down to zoom. Nice right?

3. Writing Text and Drawing on Images Now Possible:
Just like Instagram, you now have more photo editing power on whatsapp as you can now crop image, edit image, type text on image, and even annotate and draw on top of it. Yeaaa

4. You Can Now Use Bigger Emoji:
Single emojis in messages usually appear the same way as all emojis. But in this version 2.16.256, bigger emojis are now added so that these single ones would appear a little larger. See the smaller emoji in the first image and the slightly bigger emoji in the middle image below.

5. Sending Multiple Chats At Once
With this update, you can now be able to
send as many chats as possible at once while sharing or forwarding messages. While doing this, the frequent contacts will appear on top of your IM app.
