WhatsApp may soon allow users to react to messages




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.

WhatsApp will now make it easier for users to end conversations and send cute stickers, finds a new update in their beta version





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.

The beta version currently only mentions the test to be done on iOS operated devices, but if things goes well, Android will soon be receiving the feature too.

However, WhatsApp isn’t leaving its users with only this feature this holiday season, but it also is introducing another new update to an already existing feature. We all know how strong the sticker game has gotten on WhatsApp since the tech firm introduced it a while back.

The tech firm is working through some minor changes that will defiantly make some major impacts and we cannot wait to see what else they will be introducing in the near future.

WhatsApp now lets you create your own stickers




  • WhatsApp has quietly rolled out the ability to create your own stickers.
  • This seems to be limited to beta users on desktop though.

Sticker packs are a popular alternative to emoji on WhatsApp and other platforms, giving you a greater variety of ways to express yourself. The one downside to WhatsApp’s sticker functionality is that you can’t create them from within the app, but that’s changing.

Serial tipster Mukul Sharma (h/t: 91mobiles) has spotted a button in a beta version of WhatsApp that allows you to create your own stickers. Sharma confirmed to Android Authority that the feature is working right now and available via WhatsApp Web.

We were subsequently able to confirm that the feature is indeed available for us as well, letting us create stickers from photos on our PC. The sticker creation feature also offers tools to accurately snip out the image, crop/rotate, and undo/redo changes. Check out a screenshot below.

This would be a welcome change from the current situation, as WhatsApp currently prompts users to install separate sticker apps from the Play Store. The prompt doesn’t direct users to a specific app, but simply conducts a search for “WASticker.”

There’s no official word on when this feature will be rolling out to all (not just beta users), nor is there any word on whether this will come to WhatsApp on smartphones. But sticker creation on mobile definitely seems like a no-brainer.
