In the article about the WhatsApp beta for Android update, we posted news about the ability to share a document with a caption, a new feature under development. Thanks to this feature, it will be possible to attach a caption to a document before sharing it so we can assign it a short description. The feature is still under development on WhatsApp beta for iOS but we discovered that WhatsApp is working on the same feature on the iOS beta app:

As you can see in this screenshot, there is a caption bar that lets us enter a caption for the document. Compared to the same feature on WhatsApp beta for Android, it is also possible to get a preview of the document before sharing it. This is already possible on the current version of WhatsApp for iOS but we’re highlighting this because it is not possible to see the preview of the document you’re sharing on WhatsApp beta for Android so it is the main difference between the two platforms. Thanks to this feature, it will be possible to quickly search for a certain document by entering its caption within the search text field.
Unfortunately, this feature is under development and it will be released in a future update. As always, we will inform you when WhatsApp is rolling out this feature to beta testers.
