The Whatsapp iOS beta now includes a message reaction update

WhatsApp, the popular instant messaging programme, is going to introduce message reactions to iOS devices. The update is now in beta testing and will be available soon for both solo and group conversations, with new privacy settings.

The 22.2.72 upgrade for iOS devices has been marked as a suitable update, according to WABetaInfo. However, it just has settings for managing reaction notifications. The message reaction function was created to allow users to respond to a message using a specified collection of emojis to represent a specific feeling.

According to a September 2021 storey that outlined how the upgrade would function, WhatsApp has been working on this feature for quite some time. Users can only respond to a message once, and they have a total of six emojis to choose from. Unlike Twitter DMs, which have a predefined list, this lineup can be selected and updated via settings from WhatsApp's enormous emoticon collection.

However, for the time being, the future iOS version will only allow you to manage reaction notifications via a toggle. Users can change the settings for individual and group message reactions, turn it off entirely, or even change the music that plays when the notifications are received.

"Unfortunately, it's still not possible to react to messages, but the fact that it's possible to manage these settings suggests that message reactions will be available very soon," it reads.

Additionally, the business has brought new sketching tools to Android, beginning with two new pencils for drawing on photos or videos. The upgrade is now in beta testing, and when it is released, it may include the option to blur photos.
