Facebook Messenger has just been updated with a new image editor that lets you add text and drawings to photos before sending them to your friends.
When sharing a photo from your device’s photo library, the new version of Facebook‘s standalone messaging app for iOS gives you the option to edit it prior to sending. After tapping the Edit option on a selected photo, you can add some textual and visual touches to it in the app’s new image editing screen.
Tap the “Aa” icon at the bottom of the screen to add text to the photo. The text is automatically centered with respect to the horizontal, but it can be moved up and down.
To add drawings to the photo, tap the scribble icon at the bottom. You can then swipe across the photo to add doodles and whatnot. Slide up and down the color spectrum at the right edge of the screen to change the color and swipe sideways to adjust the line width.
The latest update to Facebook Messenger also delivers bug fixes.
Earlier this month, Facebook Messenger was discovered to include hidden code that hints at the imminent launch of peer-to-peer money transfer within the app.
