Just a couple days ago, WhatsApp posted on a blog post saying that they will be adding in a new feature that allows users to customise and enhance the photos and videos that they share with their friends. With this new feature users can write and draw as well as add emojis to their media attachments. Claiming that “sometimes a picture really is worth a thousand words”, it also supports front-facing flash as well as zooming when recording videos.
However, it is leaning more towards the argument that all Facebook owned applications are mirroring those of Snapchat functions, making it a very tight battle in the digital marketplace in this mobile driven age.
According to the company the features are limited to Android users now, and will soon arrive to the iPhone.
