An interesting thing about the Facebook-owned messaging app is the fact that it is constantly adding new features to its platforms. While some of these new rollouts improve the workings of existing features, others add a diverse range of functionalities to the platform. And it is reasons like these that make WhatsApp one of the most popular messaging platforms in the world. People from all parts of the world and all walks of life use to communicate and stay in touch with their family and friends and they can do so in a plethora of interesting ways.

In line with this trend, WhatsApp over the span of the past few days has added a bunch of new features to its platform. In case you missed the update, here are the top features that you need to check out:

Web media editor: When you’re collaborating, you actively move between your phone and your computer. But if you wanted to edit an image that you’re sending you previously couldn’t do that on WhatsApp web and would have to go back to your phone. To help improve this situation, WhatsApp recently added a Media Editor feature to its web-based interface called WhatsApp Web. This feature enables WhatsApp users to edit images on users’ computers like they do in case of the company’s Android and iOS-based apps.

Link Previews: People often share links on WhatsApp in order to share content with their family and friends. WhatsApp’s Link Previews feature enables WhatsApp users to see previews of links so that they have more context about what they have shared and what they are about to see or read.

Sticker Suggestions: Apart from the above-mentioned features, WhatsApp has also made finding the right sticker on its platform faster and easier. With contextual stickers, users will now be prompted sticker suggestions as they type, which in turn will enable them to find the right sticker for the ongoing conversation.

Payment Stickers: WhatsApp has also added Payment Stickers to its platform. These stickers have been created in collaboration with five women artists in India and they help users add context to money transfers. Essentially, this will help users in distinguishing between payments and money transferred on occasions among others.
