WhatsApp has started rolling out a feature that allows iOS users to forward media with subtitles. Previously, users had to send captions as a separate message when forwarding media. Now, when iPhone owners use WhatsApp transitions, the app includes original captions, which can be removed manually. The feature is available in the latest version of the app on the App Store, according to details shared by the feature tracker.
According to one report by the WABetaInfo feature tracker, WhatsApp users on iOS will be able to forward images, videos, GIFs and documents along with native captions. The report includes a screenshot of the improved transition, explaining that the user will see a new view at the bottom of the screen when the user selects a medium to transition, which can be clicked to add a comment.
Additionally, WhatsApp has also added a dismiss button that you can use to remove captions from images before forwarding the message, which can be useful if you don’t want to include the original captions. It’s worth noting that subtitles shared with forwarded media files will always be end-to-end encrypted.
The Meta-owned service continues to improve its messaging app with new features and updates. Recently, WhatsApp introduced a new feature called “Message Yourself” that allows users to enable iOS and Android to send messages to themselves or forward messages to themselves. This feature is designed to help users store messages, files, and other media in an easily accessible location, and users can also forward messages from other chats or share content directly. from other apps to WhatsApp.
Meanwhile, WhatsApp is report is working on a feature that will allow Android users to export and import their chat backups offline from Google Drive. The feature is said to provide access to the entire chat history, images, videos, and other media files. The feature was first spotted during development back in June, but the company has yet to announce plans to roll out the feature on Android or iOS devices.
