WhatsApp chat may not necessarily be interesting all the time. Sometimes you have to force yourself to chat to someone maybe because you were caught online or you don’t want to look rude to him or her by ignoring the chat. Whatever be the case, WhatsApp has found a new way to spice up your dull chats- Stickers.
The Company is reportedly working on a new feature that allows users to turn their photos into stickers on the desktop app. These stickers can not only make a dull chat interesting but you can also use them while chatting with your friends to add more fun to the conversation.
According to WABetaInfo:
“The Facebook-owned instant messaging platform is currently developing this feature and it is not yet available for beta testers. WhatsApp hasn’t officially announced when the new feature will go live for all desktop users”.
How to convert images into stickers on Whatsapp?
As per a preview of the feature shared by WABetaInfo, once the feature is rolled out, users will be able to see a new sticker icon next to the caption bar. On tapping on it, WhatsApp will send a picture as a sticker instead of the regular photo upload. Also, users will be able to verify whether the image that has already been sent is a sticker or not. The latest feature will help WhatsApp users create stickers from an image without using any third-party apps.
WhatsApp regularly releases new features and updates to provide a better user experience. Apart from that, WhatsApp is working on a disappearing mode and will allow Android users to set different timings for their momentary messages – 90 days, 7 days, or 24 hours. The disappearing messages timer by default will reportedly be available in the disappearing messages section of the app’s privacy settings. There will also be an off option. Once the timer is enabled, the WhatsApp chat will be automatically deleted after the selected duration.
WhatsApp is also bringing a voice message transcription feature
Apart from the disappearing feature, WhatsApp is also testing a voice message transcription feature for iOS users. WhatsApp Voice Transcriptions feature allows users to transcribe the contents of a voice message. WhatsApp users can now turn the content in the voice message into readable format.
