Facebook NPE has updated its Whale app with private meme groups, support for GIF memes, and new top meme templates.
2020 has been a long, difficult year so far, and what people really need right now is a few good laughs. Scratch that… What we really need is memes! Lots of memes! That’s what Whale – an app from Facebook’s experimental NPE division – offers. The new release of the app “aims to bring even more humor to your fingertips,” explain Product Lead Vasu Srinivasan and Product Manager Brad Kowalk.
The app is now adding private meme groups, support for GIF memes, and new top meme templates – as well as working with meme creators to “supercharge Whale’s creation experience.” Whale is definitely the place you want to be if you like creating and discovering memes related to pop culture.
Whale offers users the easiest wat to create memes on mobile with a range of creative tools, including GIF memes, a library of top templates, magic filters, and the face insertion tool. To make its meme creation tools better, Whale is working with creators like @pubity, @epicfunnypage, @toddayyearsold, @memequeen, @scoobydoofruitsnacks, @kalesalad, @adam.the.creator, @yourfavoriteexgf, and @sluttypuffin.
Users can share their top memes to some of these creators’ groups on Whale to get noticed by them!
The latest update offers a way to create a private group for inside jokes with friends – something Whale was uniquely designed for. As explained by Srinivasan and Kowalk:
“Since everyone has their own unique interests and senses of humor, Whale makes it easy for people to create, discover, and join groups with relatable content. Now, you can even create a private group to share inside jokes with your friends!”
Whale – a Facebook NPE app – is available on iOS in the United States and Canada, for the time being. You should also know that NPE apps are experimental, so they are always subject to change.
