WhatsApp working on new Message Reactions for the Desktop beta client
As you all know the feature to react to messages for WhatsApp beta Android and WhatsApp iOS beta is still under development process. However, there was no news about any developments of this feature for the web/ desktop client. WABetaInfo has finally shared a screenshot of this feature in its current report where you can see how this feature works on WhatsApp desktop beta when it is available in a future update.
The screenshot reveals that there will be six emojis available for you to react to messages. You can choose between these emojis. This information was already released in the previous article released by the WhatsApp news portal. In this update, the platform is bringing some details on adding a new reaction button to the feature. As per reports, the message reactions button will not be visible always.
When you move the cursor near a chat or group message then it will automatically pop up. So you will be able to react to a message just by pressing the new reaction button. This added improvement will help you to react to any message in a simpler and faster way. As mentioned earlier this feature is under development in this beta version. So even if you don’t see this feature at present, the changes have already been introduced in this update.
However, the WhatsApp news reporter assumes that as the platform has already started to develop it, the new feature on message reaction will soon be available to you in the coming date. You will get news as soon as the feature is finally released to the beta testers with the updated version. For more information on all the latest features and upcoming developments keep following us.
