Know everything about WhatsApp’s upcoming update on photo sharing

As per the details shared by WaBetaInfo, it says that if any users want to share or send photos to their contacts in their original quality, then will have to click on the photo icon, go to the setting and select the image quality.

However, the adoption of this feature would also result in higher data usage on your device. Wi-Fi would be preferable for downloading the pictures because they will be of a higher resolution and size than the ones you are sending at the moment. Currently, WhatsApp reduces the quality of the pictures and videos you send for two reasons. The low-quality content downloads rather rapidly and uses a small amount of data. But, with the latest upcoming update, it will make it easier to share excellent images with connections.

However, it is not confirmed when the chat platform will going to release this update. The report says messaging platform testing the feature, once it will get a green signal from the developers, it will be out for use.

Instagram new feature: Social Media users can now display song lyrics in reels

The photo and video-sharing platform owned by Meta Platforms, Instagram, is getting a feature that will allow users to add lyrics to their reels. Instagram head at the Mark Zuckerberg-helmed social media giant, Adam Mosseri took to his Broadcast Channel to announce the update.

Adam Mosseri noted that a new feature is rolling out a way to add song lyrics when editing Instagram Reels. He added that they have seen people manually add lyrics to Reels, so he hopes that this makes it easier to use music to express oneself. He assured that they are working on more updates to get creative on Reels. He further mentioned that the feature is similar to one that is already available for Instagram Stories.

Here are the steps to add song lyrics to your Instagram Reels:

First, go to the Instagram app, followed by tapping the Reels icon at the bottom of the screen.

Then, click on the Music icon on the top of the screen and choose a song from the library or your own audio.

Next, tap on the Lyrics icon at the bottom and choose a font and a colour for the text.

Then, drag the text to the desired position and, using the slider, select the portion or part of the lyrics you want to display.

Finally, tap on the Done button and edit and share the Reel as usual.

Notably, music has become a key element in the growth of TikTok, with the platform now looking to expand its music industry links, through a new partnership with Billboard on a TikTok trending chart and even its own live music event.  

Instagram stated that social media users are already manually adding song lyrics to their Reels clips, so it probably makes sense for IG to make this easier. Reports stated that the new lyrics sticker has been rolled out to all Instagram users.
