WhatsApp for Android may soon gain a new feature using which you can doodle your pictures before uploading/sharing with more options. As reported by the very known tipster, WABetaInfo, this new feature is available on the beta version 2.19.71. This means the feature is currently under development and getting improved by the team behind.
Those who are in the Google Play Beta Program will see new tabs in the doodle section while sharing an image. These are a search tab and switch tab that lets you switch between the Sticker and Emoji for doodling your pictures. This means for the very first time Stickers are entering into doodling as well. You will be able to apply stickers to your pictures before you upload or share them.
From the look of the screenshot, it seems like tapping the emoji icon in WhatsApp doodle mode will not only open up the entire set of emojis and icons you used to have before but also a search icon on the top left which you can use to select the emojis and same will go with the Stickers tab when you tap it.
The report also shares a screenshot which you can check out to know how the new change will look like. This new doodling may also get available in the status section as well which means you can doodle your status pictures before sharing them with friends.
So once the update arrives, you may see this new change in effect. The report, however, also says that the users may see it coming in 2.19.70 version as well. This doodle improvement is already available for the iOS users and the same is now being tested in Android as well. The change will take time to roll out for the official users.
