Exclusive feature in WhatsApp… only for iPhone users
WhatsApp, one of the most popular messaging applications in the world, has released a new stable update for the iOS operating system, which is now available on the App Store. This update, version 23.5.77, comes with an exciting new feature, the ability to extract text directly from an image. This update was highly anticipated by many WhatsApp users, and it’s great news that it is now available to everyone.
According to Wabetainfo, this new feature comes in the background of another update that introduced a sticker maker tool, allowing users to create custom stickers inside WhatsApp for iOS. Now, with the ability to extract text from images, WhatsApp has taken another step towards improving the user experience. This new feature uses the iOS 16 application programming interface (API) and was initially only available to beta users of WhatsApp for iOS version 188.8.131.52.
However, this feature is now being circulated to everyone after installing the latest update for WhatsApp for iOS, which bears the number 23.5.77.
If you’re wondering how this feature works, it’s very simple. All you have to do is open an image containing text, and you’ll see a new button that allows you to copy the text from the image. It’s important to note that this feature is only available on iOS 16, where WhatsApp uses the iOS 16 API to detect text inside images. In addition, this feature is not compatible with one-time view photos, which is an additional privacy measure that allows you to send photos or videos that can only be viewed once.
If you’re an iOS user and a WhatsApp user, make sure to update the app from the App Store to see if the feature is already available for your account. With this new update, the ability to extract text from images is now available to more iOS users, making it easier to share and exchange important information with others. Overall, this is a great improvement to the app’s functionality.
