After installing the latest WhatsApp beta for Windows 2.2321.3.0 update from the Microsoft Store, some beta testers noticed a new feature for the native desktop app: a crop tool available for the drawing editor, a feature that allows users to crop photos. This addition has been highly anticipated, as previous versions lacked 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:
The new crop tool for the drawing editor tool introduced in the latest WhatsApp beta update for Windows significantly helps users save time. Prior to this update, users had to rely on external image editing tools to crop their photos before sharing them through the app. Thanks to the latest update, with the built-in crop tool for the drawing editor, users can easily crop their images without leaving the WhatsApp interface.
Note that certain users may also experiment with a new interface for the calling buttons within chats, which will be presented as circular icons. While we consider this as a minor change, we think it confirms their commitment and dedication to enhancing the application’s interface by implementing enhancements even for minor details.
The crop tool for the drawing editor is available for some beta testers that install the latest WhatsApp beta for Windows update released on the Microsoft Store. If you don’t see this update on the Microsoft Store, please note that it will be rolled out to more users over the coming days.
