Popular messaging app WhatsApp, rolls out two new features for its iPhone users. However, these new features don’t bring much major changes in the app but are definitely the ones to make your chat.
This new time and location stickers that WhatsApp got for its iPhone users is much like what we have already seen on other popular image sharing apps like Instagram and Snapchat for a while now. This feature makes a media file, be it a photo or a video, more interesting and interactive.
If you are an iPhone user and you want to use this new sticker feature, first thing that you should do is to upgrade your WhatsApp to the latest version 2.18.30 from the App Store. After upgrading, in order to use these stickers and add them to photos or videos you should first open a chat box of any contact to whom you want to share a media file with. Then, click on the ‘+’ plus icon located right next to the message box, press the ‘Photo & Video Library’ option and select the media file (photo or video) that you would want to share it with the contact. Now to add the time and location stickers to the media file, tap on the smiley icon which is placed on the tap bar and search the time or location stickers, click on it and it’s done. Similar to the other apps you can drag and re-position the sticker wherever you want on the photo or video. You can also remove the sticker by dragging and dropping it in the bin icon placed on the top-left corner of the screen.
Along with the time and location stickers, the updated version of WhatsApp for iPhone also brings a search option to the users, which will let you find a particular group member directly from the Group Info window. This feature basically lets a user to search for specific group member and easily message them on private chat.
However, as of now this new time and location stickers are only available for the iPhone users, but according to few reports which claims that WhatsApp may bring the stickers to the Android users soon. WhatsApp is releasing this new feature to the iPhone users in a phased manner, this means only a select users may have got their hands the stickers for now. In case you still haven’t got the feature, you can head to the App store and upgrade the app.
