This feature allows the user to take a selfie from the built-in camera from the app. So how does it works? Similar to iPhone, the smartphone flashes a bright white light that lights up the users face during low light conditions.
Meanwhile, you can turn on/off the flash just by tapping on the flash symbol on the down left corner of the display.
Now, 'Mention' your friend!
Whatsapp is also planning to roll out the " Mention" feature to the users just like other social networking sites. With this feature, you can now mention people in chats as well with the ‘@' symbol before a name.
Facebook-owned Whatsapp is also planning to introduce an official "Announcement Channel" to announce the important update to the users of the app globally.
However, most of the updates besides selfie flash will be rolled out gradually in the upcoming days. Further, the updates can be picked up automatically via Google Play Store/Apple iTunes Store/Windows Phone store. Meanwhile, you can also manually update it via WhatsApp's official website.
