The ‘Speak’ option, which reads out the text in the message aloud, appears with other options like Reply, Forward, Copy, Delete and MessageAlso, the feature so far is not available on all iOS devices and appears occasionally. However, we assume that the company may soon roll it out for everyone.
WhatsApp for Android beta too is getting some additional features in its latest update. These includes stickers and ability to write on images, a la Snapchat (and now Instagram too).
The latest update also brings enhancements to the app’s camera flash.Now, whenever a user takes a photo using the camera from within the WhatsApp app, he will see additional editing tools that will allow him to draw or scribble on top of the picture in different colours by selecting the pencil and ‘T’ icon.
The colour slider allows users to pick the colour they want to doodle or write with on the image. Along with this, users can also add stickers to photos.
The update also introduces selfie flash that allows users to click better selfies in low-light and dark conditions. The feature works only when the user takes the images from the built-in camera app itself.
