WhatsApp’s New Camera Features ‘borrow’ From Everyone’s Favorite Lender: Snapchat


Facebook properties copying Snapchat features is nothing new. Instagram and Messenger copied Snapchat’s ‘Stories’ feature, so it only seems appropriate that Facebook-owned WhatsApp would completely snag its photo interface.

The new features allow users to add emoji, drawn on images and video, or add plain or colored text. After capturing a photo, or video, you’ll just use your finger to draw on the image — just like Snapchat. Speaking of Snapchat, the emoji should look familiar as it uses the open source Twemoji used by Twitter and Snapchat — not the default Android or iOS emoji the messaging app relies on.
