WhatsApp has released a new update for the Windows app. This web application can be accessed from the Microsoft Store and looks like the online version of the platform. It’s built on the Universal Windows Platform (UWP), which means it can sync and receive alerts even when it’s not running. According to WABetaInfo, the company has already released the first software update for the app, which includes reliability and bug fixes.
WhatsApp is looking for user input on the app. In the previous release, beta users had access to a comments button in the lower left corner. The app now displays a notice encouraging users to provide feedback following the upgrade. Many users have noticed issues with the app while browsing chats and changing its settings. Although it was believed that the company would remedy this flaw with the update, this is not the case. The Meta-owned messaging network has also started offering a feature that allows online users to generate a sticker from an image on the site without having to use third-party apps.
The site also includes a variety of editing features, including Sketch, Comic, Stickers, Script, Painting, and Trim & Transform, which allow users to further customize their images. This feature is currently only available to users of the WhatsApp site, and the company has not specified whether it will be available on other platforms. Users previously had to rely on third-party programs to create personalized stickers from their photos.
The media editing tool has also been introduced in the web version of the app. On the PC version of the app, users can now edit, resize and flip photos, a feature that was previously only available on the mobile version of the service. According to the social media industry, recommending stickers would allow users to choose the appropriate sticker for their discussion when composing a post. The upgrade will eliminate the need for users to navigate through many pages in order to choose the right sticker for their chat.
According to media sources, the social media company also plans to abolish the time restriction for the “Delete for Everyone” feature on its platform. The feature is still in the development and testing stage, which will allow users to erase messages for an “unknown” amount of time in the future.
