WhatsApp has added several useful features, such as the ability to edit sent messages and retrieve deleted messages, and is now introducing a new crop tool for the drawing editor in the Windows beta version.
WhatsApp introduces built-in crop tool for photos, allowing users to edit media within the app
According to a report from WABetaInfo, the new tool on WhatsApp will enable users to crop their photos within the app, making it more convenient to edit media and saving time. Currently, WhatsApp users need to use external image editing tools to crop their photos before sharing them on the platform. However, with the new built-in crop tool, users will be able to crop their images without leaving the WhatsApp interface. The crop tool for the drawing editor is currently available for some beta testers, and it is expected to become available to more users in the coming days.

This menu will give users the option to choose between an audio or video call.
