The latest update will be released through the Google Play Beta Program, bringing WhatsApp’s version to 18.104.22.168. Some beta test participants will get access to it.
The messaging service “would have overhauled the in-app camera by providing new iconography and a photo/video option,” according to the WhatsApp news tracker.
This screenshot demonstrates how the WhatsApp camera has been improved to enable quick transitions between photo and video modes.
Previously, in order to capture a video on WhatsApp, users had to press and hold. Users may, however, easily move between the two choices as opposed to touching and holding to shoot a video.
More beta testers have access to this new camera option, and more users will have access to it soon.
