News Synopsis

Within the conversation list, WhatsApp is now putting out a reaction preview. Only a select number of beta users will get access to the update. The latest update, which raised the version number to 22.18.0.71, was submitted through the TestFlight beta programme, according to WABetaInfo.

If the most recent interaction in a conversation was a reaction, the "reaction preview" feature enables viewers to examine a text preview of that reaction. The functionality has already been made available to certain Android beta users of the Meta-owned app, and it is now being made available to select iOS test users. According to WABetaInfo, "The functionality has already been made available to certain users after installing WhatsApp beta for Android 2.22.16.6 update or subsequent releases, and WhatsApp is currently making the feature available to some iOS beta users who install the most recent version via TestFlight."

A screenshot of the functionality was also provided on the page. Even when someone within the chat list responded to your status, a text preview might be viewed within a conversation cell. Notably, even if you have "response notifications" turned off in WhatsApp Settings > Notifications, there is no option to stop this function, according to WABetaInfo. Some Android beta users of the instant messaging software last week received the option to read status updates within the conversation list. In the upcoming weeks, the functionality will be made available to additional people.

The "status responses" function for the instant messaging app was just announced. Users may now respond to a message status with eight emojis thanks to this innovation, including Smiling Face with Heart-Eyes, Face with Tears of Joy, Face with Open Mouth, Crying Face, Folded Hands, Clapping Hands, Party Popper, and Hundred Points.
