A new update of WhatsApp is approaching for Android with a function that for a long time was exclusive to users of iPhone and other devices with iOS. It is one of the native tools that the platform offers to edit photos before sending them, and it saves time since it ensures you modify everything within the Meta app environment.
This has remained one of the few differences that still separate the versions of Android and iPhone. Over time, both editions have become closer in functionality to the point of being nearly identical.

Now, according to the WABetaInfo portal, specialized in leaks and betas on WhatsApp, the new photo function integrated into iPhone will appear on Android in a future update. Specifically, it is about the smudge toolalready present in iOS for some time.
What is the blur function in WhatsApp for?
If you are iPhone users, surely you already know what this useful tool is for. This is a function that will allow us to blur the background or some part of the photos that we want to share through the app in an easy and simple way.
Although the result is nothing that cannot be done using other image editing software, the advantage of having it on WhatsApp is that we can censor parts of the photos quickly, and just before sending them.
On iPhone, the feature is found within the editor simplified that appears every time we are going to share a photo. In Android, it will be added to the already existing tools of to turn, trim, add emoji, texts and draw.
According to WABetaInfo, the blur function will come to Android within the same editor, although integrated into the pencil tool, which will display a bottom bar with four buttons when pressed. The third option will be the one that will allow us to blur part of the image.
When will it arrive on WhatsApp for Android?
There is still no exact date for the arrival of this feature in the version of Androidnor if it will appear previously in an edition betaalthough the latter is likely since it is a function written from scratch for this edition.
