WhatsApp Beta Testers Get Numbered Thumbnails in Media Picker
The popular instant messaging app, WhatsApp, has been steadily introducing new features to enhance user experience. However, some essential features are still missing from the platform. Recently, the app has made strides in addressing this issue, starting with the introduction of serial numbering for media files. This feature is currently being tested by a few beta users.
WhatsApp has been consistent in adding new features to its platform, with the latest change being spotted in version 22.214.171.124 of the Android app. This update brings a redesigned media picker that replaces the checkmark, which previously indicated media file selection, with numbered thumbnails. These numbered thumbnails show the order in which the media files have been selected by the user. According to WABetaInfo, the feature is currently available for beta testers running the specific version of the app on their Android devices.
WhatsApp has been working on improving its media-sharing capabilities for quite some time now. Earlier this year, the company introduced the ability to share media files of up to 100MB in size. It also rolled out a feature that allows users to preview media files before sending them. This latest update, although seemingly minor, adds to the app's usability and enhances the overall media-sharing experience on WhatsApp.
As WhatsApp continues to roll out new features, users can expect more improvements in the near future. The addition of numbered thumbnails in the media picker is a small yet useful update that should make media sharing more intuitive and organized. While this feature is currently limited to beta testers, it is likely that it will soon be rolled out to all WhatsApp users, further enhancing the user experience on the platform.
