WhatsApp is now reportedly bringing a blur tool for images for desktop beta users
According to recent reports, WhatsApp, the preeminent example of a meta-owned messaging service, is currently bringing a blur function for photographs to users of its desktop beta. According to a report that was published by WABetaInfo, beta users will soon have access to an additional option in their image editors. This option will provide them the ability to obscure any sensitive information that they may wish to keep private before transmitting an image.
The ability to edit photos was originally exclusive to the mobile version of WhatsApp. However, earlier this year, this capability was added to the WhatsApp Web client as well as the desktop program. In June 2022, WABetaInfo made public their discovery that an image-blurring feature was in the process of being developed for desktop users. The identical update is currently being distributed to users of the WhatsApp Desktop Beta.
According to the source, WhatsApp users now have the option to blur an image totally or, for greater control, to just blur an image partially. Both options are available in the app. If a user is unsure whether or not they have gotten the update, they can try sending a picture to the sketching tool and look to see if there is a potential “blur button” present on the interface. The upgrade is presently available in beta, and the rollout to a wider audience will start at a later date.
