WhatsApp brings edit media caption feature: How it works

WhatsApp has recently introduced a series of new features, and the company has now unveiled yet another functionality that holds potential benefits for users. According to information from IANS, WhatsApp will soon empower its users with the ability to edit captions for photos, videos, GIFs, and documents. This fresh feature has already been deployed to some users, with the rest of the user base likely gaining access in the forthcoming days. Both Android and iOS users will be able to utilize this feature.

Back in May of this year, WhatsApp had initially launched the capability to edit text messages within chats. Users have a window of 15 minutes post-sending to edit these messages.

“At WhatsApp, we’re enthusiastic about granting you more control over your conversations, whether it’s correcting a minor spelling mistake or adding additional context to a message. You simply need to press and hold on a dispatched message, then select ‘Edit’ from the menu within fifteen minutes,” WhatsApp explained in a blog post during the feature’s initial release.

Yet, until now, no option existed to modify captions attached to media messages, including images, videos, and GIFs. With this most recent update, WhatsApp has addressed this limitation. Now, you can edit media messages just as you would text messages—by holding down the sent media message alongside its caption and opting for the edit choice. Similarly to text messages, you have up to 15 minutes from the time of dispatch to edit media messages.

In a recent announcement, WhatsApp also shared that it will facilitate the transmission of high-definition (HD) photos through the app—an eagerly awaited enhancement. Previously, images sent via WhatsApp underwent automatic compression, often leading to diminished image quality. However, with this new feature, users can send high-quality images to their contacts without concerns about compression.

Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Meta (formerly Facebook), also weighed in on the update in a Facebook post. He expressed, “Sharing photos on WhatsApp just got an upgrade—now you can send in HD.” The post incorporated a video tutorial illustrating how to transmit photos in either HD or standard quality. The process for sending photos remains consistent, but there’s an “HD” option situated at the top alongside the pen and crop tools. Users can thereby choose between standard and HD photo quality.
