The update brings WhatsApp even more in line with Instagram

WhatsApp has introduced a slew of new features to the latest version of the app for both iOS and Android. Most of the features have to do with the photos and camera features within the app. The new features can be found in the 2.17.219 and 2.17.30 versions of the app for Android and iOS respectively.
Here are the new features-

With this iOS version of the app, you can now reply to a message by just swiping right on that message. This is a lot quicker when compared to the previous versions of the app where one had to long press the message to reply to it.

WhatsApp for iOS now lets people add filters to images before sending them! Filters can be added by swiping up from the ‘Swipe up for filters’ text after selecting the image to be sent. Only five filters, Pop, B&W, Cool, Chrome and Film are available currently.
The update brings WhatsApp even more in line with Instagram. Both companies are owned by Facebook, and both recently added Stories-style ephemeral features, which were taken from Snapchat.
WhatsApp’s latest update has also introduced handy new shortcut functionality, which lets you reply to a specific message by swiping it.
It’s especially useful for cluttered group conversations, which can become fragmented and confusing.
For Android users, the new features have only been added to the iOS version of WhatsApp so far.
