WhatsApp has introduced an update today: new camera functions. You can now add emoji stickers to a photo. Besides that it’s now possible to draw on pictures, just like Snapchat. Is WhatsApp copying Snapchat?
On Snapchat it was already possible to draw on pictures or add stickers, but WhatsApp copied the function. This update is amazing for creative WhatsApp users. Besides stealing the drawing function, WhatsApp also copied the flashlight on the front camera.
Besides the drawing option, the emoji stickers and the selfie flashlight, there is a zoom function for recording videos. To acces this function while recording, you have to slide your finger from the top till the bottom of the screen. Another amazing video function is switching between the front and back camera while recording. You have to double tap on the display to switch from camera.
At the moment the functions are only available for Android-smartphones. The release date for iOS smartphones is still uncertain, so be patient!
