According to reports, WhatsApp is adding a 'quick edit media shortcut' feature which will allow users to quickly edit media files sent or received. 

Although there hasn't been any official confirmation regarding this feature, the new feature is said to be in the pipeline for both iOS and Android platforms. Earlier, WhatsApp was spotted adding a 'QR Code Shortcut' to enable easy scanning and sharing of QR codes. 

A beta tracking site for the Facebook-owned Instant Messaging platform reports that the Quick Edit Media Shortcut will allow users to edit media files one has sent or received in an individual WhatsApp chat or a group conversation. Some screenshots have also been floating around the same, making the upcoming feature evident.

An option called 'Edit' will be available next to the share and favourite options on WhatsApp (Android and iOS both) once you tap the media file you've sent or received. 

The dedicated option will bring the editing window to enable quick editing of the media file. Through this process, WhatsApp would reduce the steps that are currently required to edit a media file that one has sent or received in a chat or a group conversation.

WhatsApp currently doesn't provide a dedicated option to edit a media file that has been sent or received in chats and groups. The new addition will most likely not bring any new editing feature but users will continue to have the regular option to crop, add text, and draw doodles.
