i Phone Owners Now Have Exclusive Access to WhatsApp’s Latest Feature
In exciting news for iPhone users, WhatsApp has rolled out a new feature that allows users to extract text right off an image. According to a report by WaBetalnfo, the latest WhatsApp for iOS 23.5.77, the update brings this useful functionality, which is already available on the Apple App Store. Although the update’s changelog does not mention the text detection feature, WaBetalnfo confirms that more people who install the update will be able to use it.
So how does the WhatsApp text detection feature work? Simply put, users can extract text from images shared on WhatsApp by opening the image and clicking a new button that lets them copy text from the image. However, it’s worth noting that the feature is only available on iOS 16 and is not compatible with the view once images for added privacy.
In other WhatsApp-related news, the messaging app is reportedly working on a new feature that will make it easier to recognize messages received from unknown contacts in WhatsApp group chats. According to WaBetalnfo, the latest WhatsApp beta for Android 220.127.116.11 update brings improvements to this feature, which was introduced in December 2022. This new update swaps numbers with push names in the message bubble of group chat, providing users with a better experience when using WhatsApp.
