Meta-owned WhatsApp is constantly updated to ensure that users get the best experience possible as millions of people rely on the platform for their daily communication.

AI-related updates — including stickers and chatbot — have been rolled out in beta versions of the app, but they aren’t available to everyone. In September, as per Android Police, AI-powered image editing tools were also added to the beta versions.

In the latest beta release for Android (v2.24.7.13), WhatsApp has rolled out Backdrop, Restyle, and Expand options within the photo editor window.

Android Police reported that the new features will appear when a user is posting a status update or sharing an image with someone.

A sparkle icon has been added on the top row — where other options of basic editing were already available. Once a user taps on the icon, it will display three options — Backdrop, Restyle, and Expand.

Via Backdrop, a user can enter a text for changing the background of the photo. Restyle allows a user to change the overall image and Expand will help in making the image bigger.

Unfortunately, we don't know what Restyle, Backdrop, and Expand would look like on the app, as these options aren't functioning yet, per AssembleDebug.

Nevertheless, it's good to know that these AI editing tools are on the way, just as Meta promised back in September. The folks at WABetaInfo have also managed to find these changes in version 2.24.7.13 of WhatsApp beta for Android, suggesting that Meta is laying the groundwork for the feature's wider appearance in the future.
