WhatsApp is the most popular app for instant messaging, and it has many useful features. On the app, you can send and receive text messages, make voice and video calls, share photos, videos, and other files, send payments, and more.
If you use WhatsApp a lot, you might already know about the image caption feature. Like other social networking sites, WhatsApp lets you add text to the pictures you send to your friends and family. You can send captioned pictures to both one person at a time and to a group.
It’s great that you can add captions to photos, but when you try to forward a photo with a caption, WhatsApp automatically removes the text and sends only the photo. This can be annoying sometimes, especially if you are about to send the picture to someone just for the caption.
