so you can protect the content of your photos

  • 6

WhatsApp is being updated on both iOS and Android to allow pixelate photos. Apparently, it is an update via server that is being activated little by little for users. Our colleagues from Xataka Móvil and Android have been able to activate this functionalthough in our case, with a Google Pixel 6 and an iPhone 13 Pro, it is not yet available.

Nevertheless, the feature is already expanding and it’s a matter of hours before you can use it, if you don’t already have it. We are going to tell you how to pixelate images on WhatsApp, a process that can be done without the installation of any type of external app.

You can now pixelate images from WhatsApp

Send a photo of a vehicle and cover the license plate, or blur someone’s face. Pixelating images is something quite useful, and WhatsApp already allows you to do it on Android and iPhone. The process is quite similar, as detailed by our colleagues from Xataka Móvil and Android. In the event that we have an Androidthe process is the following.

  • We open the WhatsApp app
  • We open the conversation with our contact
  • We select the photo to send
  • Click on the pencil in the upper right corner
  • We will see, in the lower left corner, the button to blur

Once the tool is selected, we can now blur the content with the brush tool itself. We are selecting with the finger and the content will be pixelated. In the event that we have an iPhone, the process is very similar.

  • We open the WhatsApp app
  • We open the conversation with our contact
  • We select the photo to send
  • Click on the pencil in the upper right corner
  • We select the transparent color, corresponding to the pixelated

The main difference is that on iOS the tool is inside the brush colors, and on Android it appears as a separate option. In both cases the function is exactly the same, and when sending the photo the modification that we have made will be saved.
