WhatsApp on Tuesday announced the inclusion of three new updates, two of which are available for the mobile application, while the third is part of the web version.
The recent WhatsApp crash affected users across the world. The incident dealt a serious blow to the popularity and marketability of the app. However, in an effort to avoid migrating users to other platforms, the app has released new features that update users’ messaging experience.
WhatsApp’s three new web features include the ability to edit photos, preview links, and sticker suggestions. Announced by WhatsApp via Twitter, the company says that these changes are being made to its web client to change the way users interact with each other on the platform.
With the new photo editing features, users will be able to add stickers/text to their images while cropping and rotating the photos to their liking – on any screen size.

“In addition to adding more image editing features, WhatsApp Web now offers built-in sticker suggestions (similar to emoji suggestions). If your preferred language of WhatsApp communication is stickers, you will appreciate the functionality. “It’s like emoji suggestions but better”, WhatsApp announced.
As a reminder, due out this fall, WhatsApp decided to set aside new tools deemed obsolete. Therefore from November 1 some iPhone and Android devices will no longer be able to access well-known applications correctly.
These are smartphones that are more than five years old, and therefore use older updates for their operating systems. More specifically, it pertains to versions prior to Android 4.1 and iOS 10 that will no longer be able to access the WhatsApp update.
In fact, if the application is already installed there, the messaging application will not completely disappear from your phone, but some features will stop working correctly over time.
