WhatsApp has been rolling out features all year thus far to the world’s most popular messaging app to make it more appealing to the users. The latest feature to it’s long list of additions has added support for all types of file transfers (including archives) as well as shared media bundling in the stable version of the Android app.
Apart from support for all file types and media bundling, the latest WhatsApp update will also allow you format your text in the chat. You can now tap and hold to select the text to easily bold, strikethrough, or italicise.
The shared media bundling feature will allow you to send a bunch of photos to their friends, who will receive them bundled as an album and not as before, one after another. With this new update, once a user opens an album, all images are shown on a single page. This WhatsApp feature was rolled out to iPhone users last month, and refines the sharing of multiple photos on the platform.
This new WhatsApp for Android update also brings minor change to the WhatsApp call screen where users will now have to swipe up instead of sideways to pick up a call.
Last but not least, users will still continue to wait for the final release of the message recall feature that has been leaked several times already.
Just like with previous WhatsApp for Android updates, in order for you to access the new features, you can go to Google Play to download the latest version of the app.
