WhatsApp has been steadily introducing new features to its app in order to provide a safer and more comprehensive chatting experience. A better voice call interface, payments with Novi integration in the US, and multi-device compatibility are among the forthcoming features currently in development. Now, the most recent WhatsApp beta for Android indicates that the service is working on another, albeit minor, new feature: extra drawing tools for images and videos.

In the newest Android beta, WABetaInfo spotted two more drawing pencils, for a total of three, in WhatsApp’s built-in image editor. The indicators hint that the new pencils may have bigger tips, allowing you to scribble or draw thicker lines on photographs or videos. Users can now alter the color of the pencil in WhatsApp, but there is no way to adjust the thickness. According to the source, WhatsApp has started introducing a blurring capability for its Android app. Sharing screenshots and images should be easier now that you can blur out the sensitive areas before emailing them.
Additional drawing tools are in the works, but no details are available at this time. There’s also no word on when the public will be able to use these new tools. Nonetheless, these should first be released to the WhatsApp beta channel before being handed out to the entire user base.
Despite WhatsApp’s ongoing advancements, Telegram provides a more feature-rich experience with features like as spoiler style, emoji reactions, per-chat themes, screen sharing, and animated backgrounds. Despite this, Meta’s messaging service has over two billion active users worldwide and over five billion downloads on the Play Store alone. In October 2021, Telegram’s Android app surpassed 1 billion Play Store install, fuelled by a multi-hour WhatsApp and Facebook outage, and no doubt aided by Meta’s dubious data privacy practises.
