A few months back, we heard that WhatsApp is working on a new feature called message reaction, which allows users to express their feelings through a specific message. Currently, we have seen this new feature on Instagram, Twitter, iMessage, and more.
But now, according to WABetaInfo, WhatsApp is planning to soon release a message reactions feature in the application. In the future, this feature will allow you to react to messages like Instagram. Whether it is a group chat or a personal chat, you can respond to the message, everyone can see who replied to the message, just check the response information.
WhatsApp Message Reactions feature
In the screenshot, it looks like all reactions are placed in the first tab named “All”, then WhatsApp groups that respond to messages with specific emojis, and a separate tab in the middle. Although, users will be able to use any of the 6 emojis to react to specific messages.
Earlier, this feature was discovered during the development of the beta version of WhatsApp for iOS. And now, the company starts its development for Android users. Currently, we don’t have any information about the release date of this feature.
Aside from this, WhatsApp is also developing multiple features through the Google Play Beta program. In the previous beta update, WhatsApp switched the Migrate Media and Edit Media shortcut options as well as released the playback speed feature for audio messages. [Read More]
WhatsApp introduces pause/resume option for voice recording
WhatsApp keeps on introducing several new features for its in-app voice recorder to provide a better user experience. Recently, the company released a global voice note player feature that allows users to listen to the voice notes even after switching to a different chat.
Now, WhatsApp is rolling out new options for its voice recording that is Pause and Resume for Whatsapp Desktop. It allows users to play and stop the voice recording before sending it.
In the shared screenshot (WABetaInfo), we can clearly see the pause button that lets you pause voice notes. Earlier there was a stop icon instead of the pause button.
Before sending a voice note, you can see three options which are Listen, Delete and Resume. If you have installed the latest beta update but don’t get this option, then you will have to wait long as this feature has rolled out to some beta testers.
At present, the Pause and Resume option is being rolled out only for WhatsApp Desktop Beta 2.2201.2. However, the feature is already available for WhatsApp for iOS and the company will soon make it available to WhatsApp for Android through its beta update.
