WhatsApp update: In good news for WhatsApp users, the Meta-owned messaging application is reportedly planning to bring a new feature that will allow users to add a caption to any document they share using the WhatsApp. The instant messaging Platform will add a caption feature to the document sharing option.
According to the WabetaInfo, a website that tracks WhatsApp’s developing and upcoming features, the future updated version of WhatsApp will soon have a feature for sharing documents with a caption. While WhatsApp allows sharing a document at present, it doesn’t provide an option to write a caption to the document.
However, a user can share videos, photos and GIFs with captions. Adding the caption feature to document sharing will help users find a document easily. It is now working on the feature for a future version of the Android beta app as of now. Once the feature is ready, it will be rolled out for Android and iOS users.
Meanwhile, WhatsApp is working on a feature that will make taking back up easy for the users. It is planning to introduce a new import backup option. Currently, WhatsApp allows users to take backups to their Google Drive.
According to a report from WABetaInfo, a website that tracks WhatsApp, every time you log in to the account from a different device or reinstall it on the same device, you will see an “import” option. WABetaInfo said: “We don’t know why WhatsApp has decided to create another option to restore a backup, but it may be useful when you don’t have a Wi-Fi connection and a local backup that has automatically been created by WhatsApp, so you can export a backup to import it later. The report said that the roll out timeline of the feature is not yet confirmed. The release date of beta testers is also not out yet.
