WhatsApp is working on an important new feature that may change the way the chat service is used. WhatsApp has released a new Android beta update, and this version is said to show the company restarting work on a previously reported feature. This feature, earlier called Disappearing Messages, allowed users to delete their messages automatically after a stipulated period of time. This feature has now been renamed to Delete Messages in the latest beta, and it has been implemented in the Dark Mode as well, which is also under development. The Delete Messages feature is also under development, therefore you won’t be able to see it even after you update to the latest beta version.

The latest Android beta from WhatsApp carries the version number 2.19.348. The update can be installed via Google Play beta programme, or can alternatively be side loaded using an APK from APK Mirror. In this beta update, the Disappearing Messages feature reportedly sees its name change to Delete Messages. The feature is available in Contact Info or Group Settings and can be enabled by administrators only. As mentioned, this feature is still under development, so users won’t be able to see it even after updating to the latest beta.

The WhatsApp Delete Messages feature brings the ability to choose how long new messages will last, before they are deleted. Options include one hour, one day, one week, one month, and one year. These options could change when the feature rolls out in the stable version. Furthermore, this Delete Messages feature has also been implemented in Dark Mode as well. To recall, Dark Mode is also under development, and the latest feature was first spotted by WhatsApp features tracker WABetaInfo.

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.
