After rolling out Do Not Disturb mode earlier this month, WhatsApp is now pushing out another helpful feature with WhatsApp ‘forward media with caption'.  Users will be able to send GIFs, documents, movies, and photographs with captions using WhatsApp's newest feature.

The capability is now restricted for iPhone users using WhatsApp version 22.23.77 downloaded from the App Store, claims WABetaInfo. Users may search for old pictures, videos, and other media by searching for the caption thanks to the option to add subtitles to the material they share with their connections.

A new view will appear at the bottom of the screen if you have the update, which is now being rolled out in stages. The new WhatsApp upgrade will also give users the option to delete the caption from an image before sharing it, in addition to include a dismiss button.

Captions may be added to a variety of media formats, with support for GIFs and even documents baked in, according to WABetaInfo. End-to-end encryption will prohibit anyone from reading the content of messages sent with a caption since they are end-to-end encrypted. More people will shortly gradually start receiving the update.
