Change the default setting of automatically downloading all images into your photo album for on iOS
This feature has been one of the most annoying aspects of WhatsApp.
Everytime you download WhatsApp on your device, you are always subject to the default settings when saving your data on your device
One of this features is how by default WhatsApp will download any image or video shared in any conversation which you are apart of into your camera roll photo album.
This results in images and video which I do not possess appearing into your camera roll.
The reason why I don’t like this is because you are not in control of what people share and it doesn’t mean you want their content saved in your camera roll.
It’s particularly annoying with GIFs or Memes which are not actually funny and rather offensive.
I would like Facebook INC to change this feature to do not download all images and video from conversation as the default preference.
WhatsApp is super useful, it’s my go-to messaging platform. I use it almost daily, and have rarely ever had problems with it. Clean, simple, easy to use, aesthetically pleasing interface, WhatsApp is great in a lot of ways. One of my issues with WhatsApp, however great it may be, is that the features regarding image sending and editing is extremely simple. I understand that you don’t want to make it too complicated, it is a messaging platform and not an art platform after all. However, I’ve noticed that when trying to mark up images and draw on them I’ll often have a particular colour that I used that I want to reuse, but there is no tool to grab a colour and use it again, and this has been quite frustrating.
I’m not saying that you should incorporate extravagant colour pickers or a way to save old colours, that’s unnecessary. I just think it would be extremely beneficial to include a button (perhaps an eye dropper) below the colours that you can use to pick colours from an image or previous lines to match.
I’d really appreciate your consideration, as I think it would be very useful. :)
Add a ‘like’ button, give option of prioritising some notifications over others
It would be really great if you could use an emoji /thumbs up etc symbol to agree to someone. Instead, if you’re in a big group, you get every tiny boring notification just because someone needed to show they agreed with something, when you could have had just something like a ‘like’ button.
The consonant notifications in group chats are very annoying. I know you can mute, but you never know if something is important or not until you’ve read it. If you made a like button and then an option to mute notifications for reactions (likes, dislikes etc), it would make this app a lot better, thank you.
