While currently limited to a select group of beta testers, the feature is anticipated to become accessible to a broader audience in the coming days. It’s worth noting that Apple users already enjoy access to similar tools.
The improved text formatting options introduced in this update are designed to enhance the visual appeal and layout of messages. With features such as code blocks, quote blocks, and lists, WhatsApp caters to a diverse range of user requirements, spanning from casual conversations to more professional dialogues. The goal of this update is to streamline communication on WhatsApp, adding a touch of professionalism to the platform.
To utilize these new formatting tools on Android, users can create code blocks by incorporating the backtick character when formatting their text. Quote blocks necessitate the use of the “>” character before the message, and for lists, users can initiate the text with *, -, or numbers to create ordered lists. These tools empower users to convey technical details or complex information with precision.
In addition to these enhancements, WhatsApp has addressed certain issues in its iOS app through the beta version 22.214.171.124. Critical bug fixes include resolving crashes related to WhatsApp’s chat history backup on iCloud.
Furthermore, problems encountered while linking a new device from the app settings, opening the profile settings, and selecting a different status have also been rectified.
