WhatsApp Spotted Working on Blocked Contact Notice, Multi-Platform System Registration Code, and More

Published

WhatsApp has released beta app updates for both Android and iPhone users, and these updates offer hints on developing features. The Android app beta version 2.19.332 hints work on two features, one that shows blocked contact notice in the chat, and another that groups blocked contacts into different categories. WhatsApp for iPhone app beta version 2.19.120.20 brings all the redesign elements, including profile photo logo, some icons, and even read receipts. References of the new multi-platform system have been found in the latest WhatsApp for iPhone beta as well.

Starting with the WhatsApp beta 2.19.332 for Android, features tracker WABetaInfo reports that WhatsApp is developing a new feature that will show in the chat when you have blocked or unblocked a contact. Every time you block a contact, WhatsApp will add a bubble in the chat reporting “You blocked this contact. Tap to unblock.” The same happens when you decide to unblock a contact. The tracker notes that this bubble will be added in your chat only, and the contact you have blocked won’t be notified about it.

Another feature spotted in the latest beta is the ability to segregate your blocked contacts into categories. This feature will automatically group your blocked contacts list following a specific criteria, which means all your business contacts will be moved on a different section. The tracker says that the new arrangement will be automatic, and that you won’t have to manually set a contact as Business, WhatsApp will learn which contacts are businesses and they will be moved in the second section. Of course, this change will be introduced in your Blocked Contacts only. Both the above mentioned features are still under development that means they won’t show up even if you are on the latest beta.

Coming to WhatsApp beta 2.19.120.20 for iPhone, WhatsApp has redesigned the Splash Screen adding references to Facebook. The same logo has been implemented in WhatsApp Settings as well, redesigning the old footer. The tracker notes that the redesigned footer may not appear on the Splash Screen, for some users.

The latest update also brings a redesign of few elements, and the most notable ones include different cell animations, redesign of read receipts, chat icons, and more. Some instances of the rumoured multi-platform system were also spotted in this update. To get access from a second device to a WhatsApp account, WhatsApp needs a registration code. This code will be sent to the main account used on the primary device, and will splash a warning. WhatsApp notifies now when someone requires a registration code for your account. This will enable a more secure way of using the multi-platform feature whenever it gets released in the future.

This update also brings a redesigned image that appears when a contact has not added a profile picture and for groups without a group icon. This image now resembles the one that exists in the Android app. Furthermore, Dark Theme was spotted to be in development in this latest update. Two shades of the dark theme were spotted, one with a slightly lighter tone than the other. The latest update shows two shades of the dark theme enabled in the chats list. The tracker notes that the darker theme will be the default theme that WhatsApp will use. The user will be able to switch to the second configuration modifying the device accessibility settings.

You know how in the past when you were talking to someone online and the conversation got lengthy without the two of you enjoying it, but didn’t know how to end it? Well, that problem was fixed a while back when many social platforms introduced a message reaction feature. The feature consisted of a number of emoji’s which could be used to react to a message of the sender. The feature was so well adopted that it unknowingly and unconsciously became the symbol of ending conversations.

While most platforms like Instagram, Messenger had this feature, one of the biggest online social chatting app, lacked it. Yes, we are talking about WhatsApp.

WhatsApp, however, now has jumped the bandwagon. The company is launching two new features, and one of them is the message reaction button, reports WABI.

According to the evidences of updates collected in August, the beta version of WhatsApp contained a message that the company was launching a reaction info pane which would give the sender a glimpse of how well the receiver had reacted to their message.

Users must be glad to hear it, considering now conversation could be ended in a more un-awkward way, specially the introverts.

WhatsApp appears to be adding more features to its rumoured message reaction feature. It was also spotted in the past. This feature allows users to respond to specific messages in a chat. The new reaction information tab allows users to easily see who has reacted to a particular message. Individual chat threads as well as group chat threads will have message reactions. WhatsApp’s upcoming feature will allow users to respond to messages using different emoticons.

WABetaInfo reports WhatsApp plans to make it possible to respond to messages with a future update. It is currently in development, and may not be available in the most recent beta. Reactions will appear below the message. However, there is an additional tab called reaction info that will allow users to see who has reacted.

A screenshot of the new tab for reaction information was shared by the tipster. You can see that all reactions are listed under the tab “All” and then WhatsApp groups which responded to a particular emoji in a separate tab. WABetaInfo reports users can only respond to one message and that there are six emojis.

This feature was spotted in WhatsApp beta for iOS. However, WhatsApp is also working to bring the same functionality to WhatsApp beta for Android.

WhatsApp Web and WhatsApp Desktop users have recently received a new custom stickers tool that allows them to create stickers from photos taken on the computer. This feature is now available for both Mac and PC users. To create their stickers, users had to use third-party apps before they could send them to WhatsApp. It is not clear when this will be made available for iOS or Android users.
