WHATSAPP is ready to start letting users test a brand new feature. Some versions of the popular chat software are about to have message reactions.
Are you going to use WhatsApp message reactions?
You’ll be familiar with the feature if you’ve ever used Facebook.
“In a new future release of WhatsApp beta for Android and iOS, WhatsApp is preparing message reactions (protected by end-to-end encryption),” the site states.
It’s planned to function similarly to Facebook, allowing you to respond to individual messages.
“Thumbs up,” “love heart,” “crying with laughter,” “shocked,” “tearful,” and “pray” or “high five,” according to WABetaInfo’s tweet. You’ll probably wind up messaging less as a result of this.
You might simply react to something someone has said rather than typing a response. This could mean you get more responses from anti-texters who frequently put you on reading mode.
WhatsApp is putting the function to the test via the beta version of the app, which allows users to try out new features before they go live to the rest of the world. No one is left out because it works on both iPhone and Android.
Unfortunately, it’s impossible to predict how long a more widespread rollout will take. However, given that it’s a relatively straightforward functionality that’s already been tested on other apps, it could take a few weeks.
In any event, you can join the WhatsApp beta program by filling out the form below.
Alternatively, if you don’t want to bother, you may simply wait for the entire general upgrade, which could arrive later this year.
How do I get the WhatsApp beta?
- To get the WhatsApp beta for your Android phone, go to Google Play and search for WhatsApp.
- Scroll down until you see “Become a Beta Tester” at the bottom of the page.
- To confirm, tap the “I’m In” button and then “Join.”
- All you have to do now is wait for the beta version of the app to be updated.
On the iPhone, joining the WhatsApp beta is more challenging and capacity is limited.
