Two new features you do not want to miss: According to WABetainfo, WhatsApp, a Meta-owned messaging service, has been working on adding a slew of new features to its upcoming release.
One of the new features, according to the source, would allow users to reply to messages in the same way that they do on Facebook and Instagram. Aside from that, on the community tab, users will be able to organize all communities together.
Reaction to WhatsApp messages
WhatsApp now is set to start a feature that will allow users to rapidly react to messages and watch the responses to their messages in the app. Although the functionality has been built, the corporation has yet to make it available to users.
Users may now respond to messages by tapping the message until the message menu displays, which is a new feature of the messaging platform. A menu will appear, with many options, including “respond to message.”
WhatsApp is also working on an animation that will allow the reaction emoji to appear on the message in the forthcoming release.
The WhatsApp Community tab
WhatsApp is also launching a new community feature, according to WABetainfo, which will be accessible in a future release.
The camera tab will be replaced by a community tab, as seen in WhatsApp beta for Android 188.8.131.52.
Users may see all of the communities they are a part of by clicking on the community tab.
“Group admins can add their groups in communities,” WABetainfo stated. “Communities are private end-to-end spaces that contain particular groups.”
In a previous report, WABetainfo revealed that WhatsApp is working on a new “major” feature that would allow users to hold polls in group chats on the network in a future version.
The WhatsApp Poll roll-out
Users will be able to poll their friends’ thoughts within a WhatsApp group conversation in the future version.
By entering the bar shown in the picture below, a group member can ask a question.
However, because the feature is still in development, there is no further information available at this time.
The functionality is intended primarily for group chats, according to the WhatsApp news tracker, and the answers gathered through voting will be end-to-end encrypted like other WhatsApp talks.
Only the members of the group will be able to see the polls and their results.
