WhatsApp is planning to include document captions

We now have an update enabling document sharing, which is one of the capabilities WhatsApp is currently testing. With the new functionality, you may annotate a document while sharing it to make it simpler to discover. 

Here is the pertinent information.

New Updates for Documents Being Test

According to a recent WABetaInfo post, the Meta-owned messaging service is experimenting with adding subtitles to documents on its desktop edition. 

A text area for entering the caption will show when sharing a document. 

This follows the recent launch of WhatsApp’s capacity to send files and media up to 2GB in size. If you can recall the caption, shared papers will now be simpler to locate. 

Similar to how you can do this while uploading photographs and videos, you can also add captions. Also distributed a screenshot demonstrating the UI’s appearance. Take a peek at it now.

But before it becomes a permanent feature, you should be aware that this functionality is currently under testing. It is also anticipated to be available on WhatsApp for iOS and Android. 

However, there’s a possibility it won’t ever exit WhatsApp for Desktop beta. So it’s preferable to wait till this is clarified.

You will also be able to use WhatsApp on numerous handsets thanks to an improved version of WhatsApp’s multi-device compatibility. 

According to a recent WABetaInfo article, this capability is also anticipated to allow east chat synchronization even though it is not yet official. The feature will sync chats between the primary device and the companion device. 

But it could take some time to finish this. This is still under development, so it’s unclear when the general public will be able to utilize the new capacity. 

We will report any developments WhatsApp makes (or plans to make). So keep checking back for more information!
