In an earlier article on the 4th October, 2016, we hinted Zuckerberg’s move to copy distinct features of Snapchat and add them Whatsapp.
Today, these update we spoke about have to roll out on Android 5.0 and above, IOS and Windows platforms.
Now it’s official: Zuckerberg and his Facebook Team have totally converted Whatsapp into Snapchat with its latest updates.
In fact, the interface looks so similar to the one on Snapchat that you might not even be able to distinguish one from the other.
Whatsapp Snapchat Features
In this latest updates users can choose explicitly who sees your status updates and also which of their contacts can reply or comment status updates.
Status updates can be video, picture or in . gif formats. The era of text status updates are over in this new update and they last for 24 hours.
Now you’ll be able to add overlaid text with multiple colors and fonts, drawings and emojis to photos and videos you shoot or upload with WhatsApp. These allow for better visual communication, where you can add captions, highlight certain things, jazz up scenes with silly doodles or augment them with emoji. Snapchat popularized this style of chat, which can feel more fun, inspired and vivid than messaging with just text or unadorned images.
WhatsApp has also grabbed Snapchat’s front-facing flash feature for illuminating your face by blinking your screen white, which lets you take low-light selfies. Meanwhile, you can zoom in before taking a photo or while shooting a video by dragging a single finger up and down the screen, which allows one-handed zooming.
