WhatsApp, the Meta-owned instant messaging service has released a blur function in images for beta users. The reports of WaBetaInfo suggest that in an online platform that tracks WhatsApp’s new and planned features certain desktop beta testers can now blur photographs. They can even discreetly remove private information from their photographs with the new feature.
As per the report, WhatsApp has developed two tools. They allow the users to edit their photographs using a different blur effect. Also, users can select the blur size to precisely apply the effect.
Check If You Have This Feature
You can try to send a picture to see if this feature is enabled on your desktop. Then go to the edit tools option. After that select the blur option before pressing the send button to have access to the new tool.
In case you do not have this. You have to wait until a later update. According to the report, WhatsApp Desktop beta 2.2241.2 and new builds are marked as compatible updates.
This WhatsApp images blur option came into existence for the first time in June of this year. Right now some WhatsApp desktop beta users may access it. But we expect that this new blur feature will come around for everyone as well.
On Tuesday in other news, WhatsApp had its “longest-ever” outage. It let the users search for messaging software alternatives. Also, this popular instant messaging platform was reported to be down in many parts of the world including India.
Multiple users reported they were not able to send, receive or even login into their WhatsApp accounts. While a large increase in complaints, over 28,000, about the outage was reported on Downdetector.
