WhatsApp has launched several features in the last few days and the company has now announced yet another feature that can prove to be quite beneficial for people. As reported by IANS, WhatsApp will soon allow its users to edit captions of photos, videos, GIFs and documents.
The new feature has already rolled out to some users and the remaining users might get access to it in the coming days.
The feature will be available for both Android and iOS users.
In May this year, WhatsApp had rolled out the feature to edit text messages in a chat.
The messages can edited up to 15 minutes after they have sent by a user.
However, up until now, there was no option to edit captions on media messages such as pictures, videos, and GIFs.
With this latest update, WhatsApp has solved this problem, and you will be able to edit media messages in the same way as text messages by holding onto the sent media message with captions and choosing the edit option.
Similar to text messages, media messages can also edited for up to 15 minutes from the time of sending.
Recently, WhatsApp had also announced that it will allow users to send HD photos through the app, a move that much-awaited. Before this, images sent through WhatsApp automatically compressed, which often resulted in a poor image quality. However, with this feature, people will able to send great quality pictures to their contacts without worrying about it getting compressed.
