WhatsApp developers pushed out a new update for the hugely popular messenger platform today that includes a couple of new video and chat features for iOS users.
The main change for users who record video through the app is that they now have the ability to zoom in and out while recording, simply by sliding a finger up and down the screen.
On the interface front, WhatsApp developers have added an Edit option to the chat thread tab to make it easier to archive, delete or mark as read multiple chats in one go.
Elsewhere, individual chat threads are faster to load and can now be scrolled through continuously, rather than users being confronted by requests to 'scroll again' in order to access earlier parts of the same thread.
In addition, singular emojis now show up bigger when sent within a thread (only the heart emoji showed bigger previously).
A new WhatsApp Web/Desktop section has also been added to the Settings screen for users to adjust account login options relating to the new desktop app directly on their iOS device.
