WhatsApp Android: New Photo Function and Gallery View

Whatsapp Messenger

WhatsApp new features – Android beta testers from Messenger WhatsApp will again benefit from new features. The new photo feature offers the possibility to implement images in folders, as well as a new gallery view.

WhatsApp: new features in beta version

The WhatsApp-specialized Leaker WABetaInfo has discovered new features in a beta version of WhatsApp Android and posted on Twitter.

The new features can only be used by registered beta users. In order to become a beta tester, you must register once on the web page set up for this purpose.

Photo and gallery features

If more than four pictures are sent with the new photo function via the chat, they are displayed at the receiver in a clear folder, which is somewhat reminiscent of Facebook timeline. Apple iPhone users have been able to benefit from the feature for some time, while the current Android version 2.17.234 has only enabled the feature.

In the future, viewing images will be more comfortable. This is already indicated in the beta version. If an image folder is opened in the WhatsApp chat, a gallery view opens, which is displayed separately from the other content. An image can also be selected by scrolling to view it more closely. Probably, WhatsApp will make the new features available in the Google Play Store regular app in the near future.
