The 'Speak' option would soon appear on WhatsApp, which reads out the message aloud for its users. The option will appears with other options like Reply, Forward, Copy, Delete and Message. The Facebook-owned company is testing the feature on iOS devices.


However, the feature is not available on all the iOS devices and appears only occasionally. But the users assume that the company may soon roll it out for everyone.


WhatsApp for Android beta too is getting some additional features in its latest update. The latest update is bringing enhancements to the app's camera flash, as reported in Times of India.


The App is also planning to include stickers and ability to write on images just like snapchat. Now, whenever a user takes a photo using the camera from within the WhatsApp app, he can scribble on the picture using editing tools.


User can choose different colours for the text. The colour slider allows users to pick the colour they want to doodle or write with on the image. Another update also introduces selfie flash that allows users to click better selfies in low-light and dark conditions.
