In the past few weeks, WhatsApp has recently released a new feature to adjust text size for their native desktop application on Windows. This new feature aims to enhance the overall user experience by allowing users to customize the size of text displayed on their desktop screens. As always, this feature is available to some beta testers that install the latest version of the app from the Microsoft Store:
As you can see in this screenshot, a new option is available within the app settings, under the “Personalization” menu. With this new option, WhatsApp wants to make it easier for users to adjust text size for the Windows app. In addition, it’s worth noting that some new shortcuts are available to quickly adjust text size, as shown in the attached screenshot. You can also reset the text size with CTRL + 0.
In our opinion, the ability to adjust text size brings a good advantage to WhatsApp users on the desktop app. By increasing the font size, users can finally choose larger text to read messages with greater ease. Similarly, reducing the text size can be beneficial for individuals who prefer a compact layout, enabling them to view more content within the limited screen space. We think this feature enhances readability, reducing eye strain and increasing overall comfort while using WhatsApp on the desktop.
The ability to adjust text size is available to 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.
