WhatsApp Update: The instant messaging application WhatsApp, owned by Meta, has announced four new features: document captions, longer group topics and descriptions, the ability to share up to 100 media, and avatars.
These features have been made available to all users who install the latest version of WhatsApp for Android from the Play Store.
To provide users with a better experience, WhatsApp has just released a new changelog on the Play Store with new features finally available to anyone who installs WhatsApp’s latest update, WABetaInfo reports.
WhatsApp four new features:
Document Caption: You can now add a caption when you share documents, so you can describe them in a new way. The caption bar appears when users try to select a document. It’s easier to find a document when users send it with a caption
Longer group topics and descriptions: To better describe groups, you can now choose a longer subject and description for your groups. Users can now choose a longer group description, up to 2048 characters, as the previous limit was 512 characters
Share up to 100 media: You can now share up to 100 images and videos in your chats, making it easier for users to share entire albums with their friends and family. The new feature now allows users to select up to 100 media from the media picker within the application, which was previously limited to just 30
Create personalized avatars: It is possible to express yourself better by creating an avatar to use as a sticker and profile picture. This feature has been released to everyone in the past after installing the WhatsApp for Android 188.8.131.52 update, but WhatsApp highlights it again in the official changelog for users who may not be familiar with the feature yet.
