WhatsApp rolled out a new Windows app a few weeks ago. The app looks similar to the web version of the platform and it is available to download on the Microsoft Store. It is based on Universal Windows Platform (UWP) which means it can sync in the background and receive notifications even when it is not running. Now, as per WABetaInfo, the company has rolled out the first beta update of the new app with stability improvements and bug fixes.
As reported by WABetaInfo, the company is seeking feedback about the app from users. A feedback button was available for beta users at the bottom left corner in the previous version. With the update, the app now shows a message to encourage users to provide feedback. “We’d like to know your thoughts about this app. Please provide feedback by using the button located at the bottom left” the message reads.
Several users reported glitches in the app while scrolling conversations and while accessing the app’s settings. It was expected that the company will fix this bug with the update but it does not address this issue.
The Facebook-owned messaging platform has also started to roll out a feature for web users that enables them to quickly create a sticker from an image within the platform without using any third party apps.The platform also offers a bunch of editing tools such as Outline, Emoji, Sticker, Text, Paint and Crop & Rotate and further allows users to modify the image.
As of now, this feature is only available to WhatsApp web users and there is no information from the company about the availability of the feature on other platforms. Earlier, users had to depend on third-party apps to create custom stickers from their images.
