WhatsApp emoji reaction to get another feature soon. Know the details of WhatsApp emoji reaction preview
A few months back, WhatsApp finally announced the introduction of emoji reactions on its app. Initially, it was rolled out with a set of six emoji, but WhatsApp recently expanded the ability to react to messages with many more emoji. Well, no doubt about it, WhatsApp is a dynamic platform, where new features and upgrades are constantly being tested and rolled out. Now, it looks like something else is coming to emoji reactions and it’s ready to change the messaging experience.
WhatsApp Update Trackers WABetaInfo in its latest report revealed that WhatsApp is testing the Feedback preview as part of the latest WhatsApp beta for Android version 18.104.22.168. What will it do? The new WhatsApp reaction preview feature will show a text preview whenever a message gets a response from others.
The WABetaInfo report also shared a glimpse of the upcoming feature in a screenshot. “A text preview appears when you receive a response in a specific chat. In this case, we responded to a message using the Green Heart emoji and a text preview is shown in the chat list,” noted WABetaInfo Upcoming message response will work for both individual chat as well as group chat.
There is a catch though. Unfortunately, there will be no option to disable it, confirmed the report. Even if you disable “reaction notifications” within WhatsApp settings, you will still be able to see the emoji reaction preview.
However, you should know that this feature is currently only available to a few beta testers, and there is no confirmation on when it will be released to more users. Well, WABetaInfo says that there will be more activations of this feature in the future.
Apart from this, there is a lot of buzz about a new feature for WhatsApp Status. A report by WABetaInfo has revealed that WhatsApp may allow users to add voice notes on status updates along with photo videos or GIFs. It will be end-to-end encrypted like other images and videos shared on WhatsApp Status.
