The messaging output of Meta, WhatsApp is ready to go out the ‘Message Reactions’ feature on its platform. They are releasing the feature for beta testers on WhatsApp Beta specifically for Android. According to a statement from WABetainfo, ‘Message Reactions’ will be available for WhatsApp Beta version for Android. However, only certain beta testers are qualified to carry out the tests.

This feature would allow users to react to messages with six emoji reactions which are: laughing, loving, loving, sad, thank you and surprised. Clearly, this function appears identical to that available on the other applications of the Meta platforms. Messages on Instagram also has the feature of reacting mostly to messages with six emojis with the option to add more emoji reactions if you want. Users expect to see a similar addition to the new upgrade on WhatsApp.

WhatsApp, in turn, rolled out the feature including “Manage Reaction Notifications” options on its beta program last week. Therefore, this indicates that the ability to react to user messages could also arrive sooner than expected. However, the “messages reactions” feature would only be available to a fixed number of beta testers. Additionally, it could also be region-specific.

Another feature: multi-device connectivity:

The messaging platform also announced an update that would support multi-device connectivity. This connectivity upgrade affects WhatsApp Desktop and WhatsApp Web, which is no longer in beta testing. App users can now access WhatsApp from four separate devices. In addition, they can perform this use even if they do not have an active internet connection on their main smartphone.

The availability of WhatsApp desktop and web has greatly helped people who use their laptops or desktops on a regular basis. This WhatsApp web feature has helped workers during the pandemic involved in remote work scenarios. The connectivity feature in multiple devices was in beta for 8 months. Finally, it is made public for its intensive use.

According to WABetainfo’s statement, the messaging app strives to improve the login process when organizing messages. Moreover, it would be especially at the time when there is a huge load of messages to download, while speeding up the login process.

WABetainfo expects more updates to come although WhatsApp itself has been distributing some improvements over the past few months. WhatsApp trackers expect the messaging app to roll out the changes and improvements to all iOS users by the end of March. With Android users the following month. They continue their commitment to the best security offering through end-to-end encryption with this new feature.
