WhatsApp releases update with new feature to forward media with subtitles on iOS – NewsNaija.com.ng

WhatsApp continues to update its app with new features and updates. The messaging app is among the most used services by users in India and other parts of the world. WhatsApp usually tests its upcoming features in beta, some of which are released later gradually. One such update being tested in the past gave users the ability to forward media, including photos, videos, and documents with a caption.

The feature has been rolled out to a select number of WhatsApp beta users on iOS and Android. Now, the company has finally released the new update for the users on the iOS app. Let’s take a look at the new WhatsApp feature that is being rolled out to users on the iOS app.

WhatsApp for iOS 22.23.77: What’s new?

The new WhatsApp for iOS update with version number 22.23.77 has been rolled out for iPhone users, which can be downloaded from the App Store. The changelog for the update indicates that it fixes some bugs. However, a report from WABetaInfo claimed that the app is also rolling out the ability to forward media with a caption to some users after installing the latest WhatsApp for iOS 22.23.77 update from the App Store.

A screenshot attached to the report revealed how the feature works. The report stated that not all users currently have the feature enabled. We can expect WhatsApp to make the feature available to all users in the coming days. Once it is available, all users will be able to forward supported media files such as images, videos, documents, archives, GIFs, etc. with a title. Previously, this was not the case and users had to send a title as a separate message.

With the new update, it’s also worth noting that forwarded messages with captions are still end-to-end encrypted. This means that no one but the sender and the receiver can see the content of the forwarded message.

In related news, WhatsApp is also testing the ability to send messages to yourself in iOS and Android beta. The feature is available on rival app Telegram. WABetaInfo claimed that the new Android update includes a minor test feature called “messages with yourself.” The feature is rolling out to a small number of beta test users. After upgrading to the latest Android app update, some beta testers may see WhatsApp highlighting their chat by adding “message yourself” as the chat title.

It is not known when the feature will be rolled out to all users. Since the feature is being tested with a small group of beta users, we can expect it to take some time before it is widely available to all users.
