WhatsApp will now let users see larger images and video previews in chats. The Facebook-owned messaging app had rolled out the feature only for iOS users, but now the feature is available to Android users as well. The feature enlarges the content that is shared in chats and does not crop out the pictures or videos. You can now scroll through chats without having to tap on the image or the video to open it on the big screen.
WhatsApp tweeted from its official Twitter account about the new feature. “Photos and videos in WhatsApp are now even bigger, so no one will be left out of the picture! That’s the perfect reason to smile,” the company wrote. Along with the tweet, there is a small video preview of how the feature will look once it is rolled out to a wider audience. In the video, you can see that the pictures no longer appear in a square-shaped box, you can now view the original size of the picture. Earlier, in order to view the complete picture, users had to tap on the image but now the image will automatically appear in the chats. The tweet hinted that the feature has been rolled out across all platform.
