WhatsApp Beta for Windows gets full option modern context menu for chats – Neowin

The WhatsApp Beta UWP app has a received a new update in version 2.2225.2.0 that adds a modern context menu for selected text in chats. This will allow users to do some basic text formatting when composing messages to contacts, with options such as Italics, Bold, Strikethrough, and even formatted font for such things where it is relevant, like sharing code. Thanks to Microsofters on Twitter who spotted this update, you can see above in our before/after images the difference between the context menus in the chat window between version 2.2225.2.0 and the previous version. The context menu can also be collapsed so that the Copy, Cut, Paste, Undo and Select All options are all hidden, and this is remembered between chat sessions. Unfortunately, since both Facebook Meta, (who owns WhatsApp) and Microsoft does not provide release notes or a history, it is unclear what else was changed with this latest update. But you can grab it right now from the Microsoft Store here. Some of the exciting features the Meta-owned company recently added include message reactions, sending voice notes, and limited one-time view for media shares, as well as emoji shortcuts, dark mode support, the ability to filter and…

WhatsApp is developing avatars for video calls – Android Police

The tool could help maintain user privacy and become a useful form of self-expression WhatsApp is slowly yet steadily expanding the frontier of what its users can do with emoji. It has certainly had to make up ground against other messaging apps with emoji stickers and animated emoji, but it's all progress nonetheless. We're now learning about another feature in the pipeline that's playing catch-up to something Apple and Samsung were all over years ago. WABetaInfo has picked up on plans to let users switch to a custom avatar — perhaps in the style of Memoji or Bitmoji — during video calls. This means that people will be able to utilize alternative avatars instead of using their straight camera vision or their profile picture during a call. The feature has been in development since March. Unfortunately, we don't see much about the avatars themselves here — this screenshot simply shows the button the user will need to press to switch to their avatar. The button simply doesn't work at the moment. Animated emoji-based avatars are definitely an improvement to WhatsApp's video call experience whether it's for privacy's sake or just another way to express one's self. The biggest question here…
