WhatsApp is testing a new text editor for Android users


WhatsApp is rolling out a new text editor experience for some beta testers on Android beta. According to a new report, beta testers can now edit photos, videos and GIFs in the text editor.

According to WABetaInfo, users will also be able to easily switch between different fonts by tapping on one of the font options displayed above the keyboard. Text alignment can also be changed to left, center, or right, giving users more control over formatting text within images, videos, and GIFs.

Beta users can change the background color of the text, making it easier for them to separate important text from the rest. Some new fonts have also been released to beta testers, including Calistoga, Courier Prime, Damian, Exo 2, and Morning Breeze, the report says.

Meanwhile, last week, it was reported that the messaging platform was working on a new feature called “audio chats” that would be available within conversations in a future update to the application on Android.

The new editor is a part of beta testing, as mentioned earlier, which means it won’t be available to all users right now. WhatsApp hasn’t said when or if it plans to roll out the feature to everyone. WhatsApp is simultaneously working on several other features as well, and they are likewise only available to beta testers for now. For example, the chat app is working on an edit feature that will allow users to edit messages after sending them. WhatsApp is also working on an audio chat feature on Android, allowing users to chat using only audio notes, eliminating the need to send texts.
