Right now, there are only five options: Pop, B&W, Cool, Chrome, and Film, but it's easy to imagine that WhatsApp could add more in the future.
Instant Messaging application WhatsApp recently announced a new update for iPhone users which include photo filters, automatic albums in chats, and also quick replies to messages. Swiping right on any message means you'll be able to quickly jump in and start typing a message reply.
Update is now available for iOS users. Users can now edit a photo, video or GIF post-capture with a filter. Once you select the video or photo a simple swipe will showcase the filters for you to choose from.More news: Polls show conflicting outcomes for UK's May in next week's election

Albums are formed automatically each time four or more photos or videos are shared in a conversation.
These new features are only available for iOS users only for now, and there is no information provided as to when, Android users will receive it.
WhatsApp has added encryption before backing up files to the cloud. This feature will help make chat windows across the globe much cleaner, with multiple photos appearing one below the other becoming a thing of the past. By introducing the new features, WhatsApp just wants to stay relevant for the teen users who are more inclined towards visual apps like Snapchat. In any case, here is what you can expect to get after updating WhatsApp for iOS to the latest version. Of this, there are 200 million monthly active users in India alone. In the recent past, we are witnessing a trend wherein app makers are adding a bouquet of new features so that the user doesn't have to leave their apps for additional features.
