If imitation is a form of flattery, Snapchat should be proud. WhatsApp’s latest update just copied Snapchat’s creative tools, now allowing users to write, doodle or add emojis to photos and videos.

WhatsApp has some new tricks up its sleeve, but they’re not exactly new — they’re basically Snapchat’s creative tools, allowing users to write, draw or put emojis on images and videos.

Snapchat’s immense popularity has temped many rivals to copy its features, from the ephemeral messaging scheme to creative tools, Snapchat Stories and more.

Not long after Instagram Stories launched as a clone of Snapchat Stories, Facebook started testing a Snapchat-like Messenger Day, and now WhatsApp brings Snapchat’s creative tools to its own app.

According to WhatsApp, the latest update started rolling out to Android users on Monday and will hit iOS “soon.” If you already got it, drop by our comment section below and tell us what you think of it.
