WhatsApp rolled out Image Blur tool for desktop, how to use

WhatsApp rolls out image blur tool: Meta-owned instant messaging platform WhatsApp is rolling out the blur tool for images on the WhatsApp desktop beta for some beta testers. According to a report by WABetaInfo, users will now have access to an additional tool in their picture editors that will allow them to blur out any sensitive information from photos before sharing them with others.

Thanks to the blur tool, you can quickly blur sensitive information from your photos in a neat and clean way, the report said. In June, we also announced that WhatsApp was developing a version of Blur on the desktop beta. This is rolling out to some beta testers.

In June this year, WABetaInfo first announced that the image blurring function was being developed for desktop beta users. This feature is currently being rolled out for WhatsApp desktop beta users.

WhatsApp has recently introduced a new status reaction feature for iOS users. WhatsApp users will be able to react by sending a reaction to a status, just like you can react to a story on Instagram. Apart from this, WhatsApp users are now getting Bitmoji-like avatars of Facebook. This feature is being released to select users in the latest beta update 2.22.23.9 on Android. However, it is expected that WhatsApp will soon roll out this feature to everyone.
