WhatsApp's new features aimed to improve user experience

WhatsApp Night Mode

WhatsApp is undoubtedly among the most popular chatting apps across the world. The new feature by WhatsApp was initially spotted by Android Police.

Any user wants to change the font style, first of all, select the text and tap on the overflow button. This feature allowed users of the app to apply or rather change the font of text before sharing with friends. Last year, WhatsApp introduced new strong, italic and strikethrough textual styles alongside fixedsys monospace text style too.

WhatsApp for iOS has gotten hold of a brand new feature which helps people capture better photos in the dark. If you choose any of the font styles, it will change immediately.

Both of the features have been available for the beta users of WhatsApp since the past few months, but a lot of them aren't aware of the same.

There is an emoji search option, which has been in use by WhatsApp Web for quite a few months. Another vital component that is set to land in the application is the new emoji seek choice.

As mentioned earlier, the WhatsApp beta app for Android has got a new update with version 2.17.252, but the features were introduced in the beta version released a couple of days back. A report by Express UK suggests that the Facebook-owned WhatsApp is planning to add new features. You've probably heard of this feature, but this one is way different from what you already know about Night Mode.

Called "Night Mode" in the WhatsApp translation page, uncovered by the folks at PhoneRadar, the new feature is created to deliver photos in lowlight conditions. So far, the feature has made its debut on iOS, with those on Android expected to join the party sooner or later. If you do not have these features, you can download the recent beta version to enjoy the benefits.
