Highlighted by the trusty WhatsApp features tipster, WABetaInfo, Let’s first look at the inclusions in the newest version of WhatsApp Web.
The new image editing tools on WhatsApp Web (version 2.2130.7) are a part of a feature dubbed ‘Drawing Tools’ that allow users to edit and tweak images before sending them to someone. This feature has been present on the smartphone versions of the app however, now will soon make its way to the web browser version of the app.
The Drawing Tools feature on WhatsApp Web allows you to scribble on top of an image, add stickers, emojis and even crop/rotate an image before sharing. The tools become visible after you select a particular image to share.
