WhatsApp for Android updated with quick reply, text formatting and more
Loved Android N’s quick reply feature? Can’t wait to get it? If you are a WhatsApp user, then be ready for a treat as the app is updated with quick reply and other new ingredients.
After living nearly a month in beta, the popular messaging app seems to have a wider roll out of the v2.16. Let’s breakdown the new additions
- Reply to new messages right from notifications
- Tapping the quick camera button in a chat lets you pick a photo or video from your camera roll
- Pick from a set of solid colors for your chat wallpaper
- Quickly archive, delete, or mute multiple chats at once. Just tap and hold a chat in the chats tab and tap on other chats to select them.
- Format text in your messages by surrounding your text with special characters: *bold*, _italics_, or ~strikethrough~
Big one. Isn’t it? Head over to Play Store and grab the latest goodies.
