WhatsApp adds text detection on iOS

WhatsAppWho meta Ones, recently introduced a new feature called “picture-in-picture” for video calls iOS Device. Now it is working on adding two new features to iOS Android app, according to WABetaInfo.
Text Detection for WhatsApp on iOS
One of these features is text detection, which makes it easy for users to extract text from images they receive on WhatsApp. This feature can be especially helpful for business or work-related conversations where documents and pictures are often shared.
latest update of whatsapp for ios Version 23.5.77 provides the ability to extract text from an image, which was previously limited to beta testers only.
If you want to try out this feature, open an image that contains text and find the new button that has been added. Once you click on this button, you can directly copy the text from the image. However, it is worth noting that this feature can only be accessed on iOS 16 and is not supported by View Once Images, which provide an additional layer of privacy.
Text detection is only available for iPhone users, and it is not known when this feature will arrive for Android smartphones.
WhatsApp Users May Soon Be Able To “Limit Voting To Only One Option”
The other feature in the works is called “limited voting to only one option”. Currently, WhatsApp allows users to create polls with multiple answer options, but this new feature will limit polls to only one option. This can be useful in situations where a user wants a clear answer or when they don’t want people to select more than one option.
With an upcoming update, there will be a toggle in the poll composer, which can be seen in the attached screenshot. This toggle enables users to limit poll responses to a single option. This option can reduce potential confusion and ambiguity, allowing more accurate identification of the most popular option.
As of now, it is uncertain when the Limit Poll Only option will be available, as it is still in the development phase and is expected to be included in a future update of the app.
