Popular instant messaging platform WhatsApp (WhatsApp) recently introduced a new feature called ‘Automatic Albums’ for their Windows beta version. This feature is already available in Android and iOS WhatsApp beta versions.
Speaking of functionality, the ‘Automatic Album’ will provide the facility to categorize photos and videos sent sequentially in the chat window. In this case, when users send or receive three or more photos and videos together, WhatsApp will automatically group the media files into an album.
Due to which, in addition to getting rid of the scrolling problem, users can view the entire content together with just one tap on the album. Incidentally, this Meta-owned instant messaging app is releasing the ‘Automatic Album’ feature through its ‘Universal Windows Platform’ (UWP) version.
WhatsApp plans to roll out Automatic Albums feature in Windows beta version
According to a recent report by WhatsApp beta feature tracker WABetaInfo, WhatsApp is rolling out support for the Automatic Albums feature in their Windows beta version. As a result, after the release of the new update, the media content shared continuously in the chat window will automatically be categorized into a single album.
The report also mentions that when users send or receive three or more photos and videos in a row, using the UWP version of the instant messaging app, they can view the entire content collection in an automatic album with a single tap. WABetaInfo also included a screenshot of this new feature in their report.
The automatic album feature is only available to users who have installed the latest version of the WhatsApp Windows beta app from the Microsoft Store. Notably, this feature was already present in the Android and iOS beta version of the instant messaging platform
Incidentally, WhatsApp has recently added ‘view once photos’ and ‘record voice notes’ features to its Windows beta version. Also, the messaging app has started rolling out a new feature, which allows users to add up to 512 members to group chats.
The meta-subordinate platform is also reportedly testing an undo option for deleted messages. In this case, after deleting a message using the ‘Delete for Me’ option, a new pop-up bar will appear at the bottom of the screen for a few seconds. Originally deleted messages can now be undone.
However, with the release of their Android beta version 126.96.36.199 (188.8.131.52), WhatsApp may bring the ability to share files or content up to 2GB in size, some recent reports claim. In this case, users can share content up to a maximum size of 100 MB.
