Once again, WhatsApp has introduced some new features for Android. WhatsApp on Android will soon let users format their text to add bold or italics style while messaging their friends. This feature comes in handy when one wishes to type to highlight something important in a conversation.
WhatsApp update 2.12.535 for Android will have these features, reports AndroidPolice, which spotted the APK file. Currently the version is only for beta testers, and those who download the APK file. The new update also brings the ability to share files and PDFs from Google Drive, OneDrive, rather than just the internal storage option.
Some new improvements have been made to the WhatsApp document file sharing feature too. One can now share a document through Google Drive. Users can select a PDF, Word file or PowerPoint presentation file from Google Drive. Although, all of the files will be automatically converted to PDF format before sending it to other users.
Recently WhatsApp introduced support for sharing documents, new Emojis and a completely revamped Settings page on Android. The Settings screen brought new features including a circular profile picture, instead of a square one like before.
WhatsApp now has 1 billion monthly active users, just seven years after the app was first launched.
