WhatsApp may introduce a ‘text editor’ for iOS beta users

According to the report, it is already possible to change the font of the text, but the new interface will make it easier for the users to choose the font quickly.

Also, it will be possible to change the text alignment to left, center or right, giving users more control over formatting their text within images, videos and GIFs.

With the new text editor, users will also be able to change the background color of the text.

The new fonts will be available when the new text editor is released to some beta testers.

The report states that the new text editor is currently under development and is expected to be released in a future update to the application.

In January this year, it was reported that the messaging platform was working on this new text editor for Android beta.

Meanwhile, WhatsApp was reportedly working on a new feature for the iOS beta that would allow users to set an expiration date for groups.

According to a report by WABetaInfo, the new option will be available in Group Info. When this feature is released, users will be able to choose from different expiration options such as one day, one week or a custom date. Moreover, if users change their mind then they will also be able to change or delete the expiry date which was set earlier.

A group’s end date will be set only for you, so only you can leave the group, regardless of whether other group members want to leave.
