A curious detail of this update is that the new feature has not been listed in the WhatsApp change log in the App Store. That is, the function was discovered by chance by some users. Therefore, it was also revealed that the novelty does not work with single view images, as WhatsApp intends to maintain user privacy.

But is this feature useful? Certain. Firstly, it can simplify the reading and interpretation of text written on photos or images, which would otherwise be difficult to read. For example, you might use this feature to read the text on a menu in a restaurant or the text on a billboard. Also, this feature can be useful for i professionals who work with paper documents and want to digitize them. For example, a lawyer could take a photo of a page of a judgment and use this feature to extract the text and use it in a digital document.

In general, extracting text from images can simplify information management and work with digital documents, saving up time e fatigue.
