WhatsApp: Using Filters For Photos & Videos

WhatsApp: Using Filter For Photos & VideosIf you updated your WhatsApp to the latest version, you will be able to use color filters for your photos and videos before you send them. Up until now, you had to use third-party apps or the iOS filter. This feature enqueues with a pallet of useful photo editing features, which WhatsApp added some time ago.


To use the new color filters in WhatsApp, you will need to install at least version 2.17.30 on your iPhone. You can check in the App Store, if there is an available update by checking the section Updates at the bottom menu.
