NEW TEXT EDITOR
In the article about the WhatsApp beta for Android 188.8.131.52 update, we shared information about a new feature under development: a revamped text editor. Thanks to the new text editor, it will be possible to use additional tools that will improve your experience while using the drawing tool. After some days, we also discovered that WhatsApp plans to bring new fonts to the new text editor, which will definitely enhance the customization experience. The feature is still in development on WhatsApp for Android but, thanks to the latest WhatsApp beta for iOS 184.108.40.206 update available on TestFlight, we discovered that WhatsApp is finally working on bringing the same feature to a future update of the iOS app!
As you can see in this screenshot, the new text editor will bring a very different experience to users by offering new fonts and tools to improve the drawing editor, in line with what we already discovered with the development of WhatsApp beta for Android.
- The main feature will allow users to easily switch between different fonts by tapping one of the font options shown above the keyboard. Although it’s already possible to change the text font, WhatsApp is making it easier with this interface so it will be possible to quickly select the font you want.
- It will be possible to change text alignment to the left, center, or right, giving you more control over formatting your text within images, videos, and GIFs.
- In addition, users will be able to change the text background color. This feature will make it easier to differentiate important text from the rest.
- New fonts will be available when the revamped text editor is released to some beta testers in the future: Calistoga, Courier Prime, Damion, Exo 2, and Morning Breeze.
The new text editor is under development and it will be released in a future update of the app. As always, we are going to publish an additional article on this website when we have further details to share with you.
