WhatsApp is the world’s most popular encrypted messaging service, which is constantly adding new features. According to the new Beta updates, a “WhatsApp Messages reaction” feature is currently rolling out on the WhatsApp beta versions. In order to add more interest in the app, WhatsApp is adding a WhatsApp Messages reaction option. This feature is currently in beta testing and was first spotted/leaked by popular platform WABetaInfo on its blog.
WhatsApp find itself lacking in features compared to its competitor. Like Facebook’s own Messenger app has message reactions option. If you long press on message you will receive a popup row of emoji’s. You can instantly react to that particular message. By this option you will get of quote-reply and then insert an emoji.
Finally, this feature is coming on WhatsApp. WABetaInfo has been revealed in this update. The beta update is currently on testing. The screenshot shows that message, clearly intended as a test.
Unfortunately we can’t tell you exactly when this feature will come to public. WhatsApp sometimes tests new features like this for many months before it deems them worthy of a release.
