WhatsApp just updated its camera features, which let you write and draw on images and videos while you will be also able to add emojis. It introduced new customization options for images and video those are shared on the instant messaging app.
The new camera features has started rolling out to Android devices while these will be available to iPhone users soon.
According to the WhatsApp, the new features to draw, write, or add emoji on images and videos will appear as editing tools automatically when trying to share a new photo or video or the one that's already stored on the device.
WhatsApp said in a blog post, that, "Today we're introducing new ways to customise and enhance the photos and videos you share with friends and family around the world. Whether you're drawing a big red heart to show how much you miss someone or adding your favourite emoji - sometimes a picture really is worth a thousand words. Try adding text too, and change the colour and font style."
The options to write, draw, and add emoji to photos and videos has been available to Snapchat users for a long time. Notably, this is not the first Snapchat feature that a Facebook-owned product added into its pool as Facebook has rolled out a new feature called Messenger Day which reportedly tries to clone Snapchat's Stories feature. In August, Instagram added Stories format that cloned Snapchat's Stories feature.
