According to a new report by WaBetaInfo, a new reaction information tab was spotted during the development of WhatsApp beta for iOS.
This means that in the future WhatsApp users will not only be able to reply to a chat message with an emoji, but they will also be able to see who replied to the message.
But the feature is currently in development, and once it is available, it will work similar to the message interaction feature on Facebook and Instagram, and users on these platforms can reply to a message with emoji such as a heart and others.
The report states that all reactions to the message will be listed in the first tab called “All.” WhatsApp groups that have reacted to a message using a specific emoji will be listed in a separate tab, and users will be able to reply to a specific message only once. Reactions to 6 emojis right now.
“The feature was spotted during the development of WhatsApp beta for iOS, but WhatsApp is also working to bring the same capability to WhatsApp beta for Android as well,” the report says.
Meanwhile, the instant messaging app has started rolling out a new feature for web users. The new feature allows WhatsApp Web users to quickly create a sticker from an image within the platform without using any third-party apps.
