WhatsApp Message Emoji Reactions

WhatsApp has just officially confirmed that Android and iOS users can now use any emoji as Reactions on chats & messages. Copying Telegram, the top messaging platform activated emoji reactions for its consumers, however, the suspension of all emoji limit is a big deal.

Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced that WhatsApp has started to rollout the ability to use any emoji as a reaction on WhatsApp. It is worth mentioning that the messaging service has earlier enabled message reactions using just 6 emojis.

WhatsApp Pin Channel feature

WhatsApp is releasing a new beta update with version 2.24.13.3, which brings a new feature that allows users to pin their most important channels to the top of their channel list.

The new feature is currently available to a limited number of beta testers. It makes it easier for users to keep track of their top two preferred channels.

Previously, users had to scroll through all their channels to find the ones they visited usually. The new pinning feature of WhatsApp simplifies this by letting users select up to two channels to pin at the top of their list. This feature is saving time and improving overall app navigation.

To pin a channel, users simply choose the channel and use the pin option in the app’s top bar. Once pinned, the channel will remain at the top of the list for easy access.

Moreover, the update also includes the ability to perform actions on multiple channels at once, such as muting or marking them as read. The new feature is expected to be rolled out to more beta testers soon.

WhatsApp Pin Channel feature

WhatsApp has released a fresh beta (v2.24.12.27) update for Android devices, which introduces a new feature that allows users to confirm their privacy settings before posting a status update. This feature is similar to one already available for iPhone users and is currently being tested by a limited number of beta users.

The update provides users more control over who sees their status updates. Before posting, users are prompted to review and customize the recipients for their content to ensure that only chosen contacts can view it.

The status privacy confirmation feature simplifies the process of sharing updates by allowing users to set their preferences once, rather than having to do so for each status.

It means that now you won’t have to go into status privacy to select an option from the ‘Who can see my status updates’ setting as you can now manage it directly while posting your status.

This new feature is gradually becoming available to more Android beta users through the Google Play Store.
