Finally, WhatsApp got some features similar to Snapchat through Beta

Mark Zuckerberg seems to be obsessed with Snapchat and its features, he is seen adding few features from Snapchat to his Services like Instagram, Facebook and now finally WhatsApp enters the game also! Hah! Snapchat, you’re the real champ! WhatsApp Beta has got something really similar! WhatsApp Plus Apk is the another fantastic feature for it’s users. Most of the users feeling it’s premium feel in WhatsApp Plus than SnapChat.

From the changelog of WhatsApp Beta,  So For the front-facing flash, the screen will light up white when taking a selfie, acting thus as a make-shift flash to better illuminate your face in dark environments. And when you’re holding the record button to capture a video, you just need to slide your finger up and down to zoom in and out. This may sound familiar to all of you Snapchat users, but everyone is now copying this gesture, including Instagram and WhatsApp.

Keep in mind though that both features only work in WhatsApp’s camera, ie you will need to tap the camera icon in the text entry box at the bottom of the chat and not the attachment icon from the top and then the camera. I know that’s confusing, but the latter launches your phone’s default camera app while the former is the one that goes into the WhatsApp cam interface.

Image drawing and Stickers

We’ve known WhatsApp was going to add image drawing and stickers for a while now (you could even turn on the option by installing a third-party app if your phone was rooted). But it was enabled for all without any hacks in 2.16.262.

After you take a photo with the WhatsApp camera (check the section above for the camera distinction), you will be able to not only crop said image like before, but also add a sticker to it, type text, and even annotate and draw on top of it.

Stickers are all the rage now and WhatsApp isn’t reinventing the wheel here, but it’s all well done, with lots of stickers and text that you can resize, move, and rotate, and a full RGB spectrum of colors for text and drawings. There’s an Undo option too, should you want to go back one or several steps.

Bigger emojis

WhatsApp has added one small bonus that all you emoji lovers will sure appreciate — I know I dig it. Remember how sending a red heart results in a big emoji that’s significantly larger than the others? This is basically the same idea, but just not as large as the red heart.

Single emojis in messages used to appear the same way as all emojis (see the laughing face with tears in the left screenshot below). But in 2.16.256, bigger emojis were implemented so that these single ones would appear a little larger (see the same emoji in the middle screenshot). Cool, eh?

Telegram links

Do you remember that big story last year about WhatsApp blocking Telegram links? Well, I’m not exactly sure when, but WhatsApp has started allowing Telegram links back again inside messages. Maybe these were allowed back months ago, maybe it’s only recently.

All of these changes are live in the latest WhatsApp betas that you can grab either by joining the official Play Store program then letting the app update by its own on the Play Store, or by grabbing the APK for v2.16.263 directly from APK Mirror.

Common, Mark Zuckerberg Let us not see anymore copied features and something which no one bought before. You guys have the ability to easily do something like that! Show us your skills and ability Facebook HQ! 😀
