The latest beta version of whatsapp has introduced a new feature which allows you to write text in bold or italic format. By adding asterisks on both sides of the word or phrase you can make it bold, i.e *word* would become bold and adding underscores to the word or phrase would make it italic, writing _word_ becomes Word.
There are also some other pretty cool features that have been added they include;
Read More – A new ‘Read More’ feature have been added to whatsapp, this breaks a ‘really’ long message just like continue reading on Facebook.
I think this a good addition, I don’t know if you guys have also noticed that really long messages crash whatsapp. With this, that would be stopped.
Redesigned Settings Menu – The settings on the coming update would also be redesigned and I got to say it looks much better.
Your display picture is now in a circle instead of the square it was in before.
Link Copying – This is one thing I always thought whatsapp was lacking. Whenever you copy a link from a message, you had to first copy the entire message then paste it somewhere else before you can now copy the link and this is too much work. However, in the new update you can easily copy a link from a message by pressing and holding on the link. This saves you a lot of time.
A bit of rearrangement was made in your friend’s profile. Before, when you check your friend’s profile, their status is right under their dp but now, their status is at the bottom.
This isn’t really important but I just thought it was worth mentioning.
Well, that’s all I could notice in the coming whatsapp Update. If you love this new features and you want to get the update, you have to Register as a whatsapp beta tester that way, you get to test new whatsapp updates before it is generally released for other people to install. Pretty cool right?
