WhatsApp media editing features

Although WhatsApp provides basic media editing features such as cropping, adding stickers, and writing text in its editing section, we still look for other applications for smooth and convenient editing.

Because, if we make any single mistake during editing there is no way to remove it, and we end up re-editing the whole media including images and videos. To solve this problem, the WhatsApp developers are designing new media editing features for making the whole process easier.

According to the info, the WhatsApp 2.21.22.1 Android beta update has informed about new editing buttons. In the future, WhatsApp will add two buttons for undo and done. You can check the below image showing the difference between the current and future layout of the media-editing section.

New Editing Tools:

The new changes will be minor ones allowing the users to restore the previous editing and save it for further. In particular, there will be two buttons- Done and Undo. After applying one filter or using one tool users need to save the editing and press the Done button. Then only they will be able to use the next tool.

On the other hand, the second button will let you restore the previous media if you are not happy with the editing. However, this feature is currently being developed so yet to be available for the beta testers. But we’ll bring you the fastest insights on this matter just stay connected with us.
