WhatsApp has rolled out a highly anticipated feature on the app, showing its commitment to improving user experience.

The latest feature on the instant messaging platform is the picture editing tool, which has been introduced for the Desktop version of the app, as reported by WABetainfo.

An article published on the website stated that the recently added feature is a “crop tool” for the drawing editor that allows users to trim images as required.


“This addition has been eagerly awaited, as previous versions didn’t have this functionality. With this update, WhatsApp beta users on Windows can now enjoy the convenience of cropping their images within the app itself, making it easier for users to edit media,” it said.

The “crop tool” also saves time for users as they no longer have to crop pictures using external image editing tools before sending them via the Desktop version.

The built-in crop tool lets users easily crop their images without leaving the WhatsApp interface.

However, not all users currently have access to the new feature as it has initially been released to some beta testers. It will be made available to more users soon.
