Relevant information appeared on the insider portal WABetaInfo. In the near future, a useful function for entering the messenger from different devices without manual confirmation on the smartphone will be released from the “beta” status. In addition, the application will have a long-awaited feature that allows you to rate other people’s posts without accompanying text.
According to the source, the developers are preparing to roll out the feature in the stable version of the application for all iOS users by the end of March. Owners of Android gadgets will receive the corresponding update in April. In addition, according to the source, after the upgrade, connecting to the account will be much faster without losing the security of the connection.
Improved chat synchronization between different platforms is also reported, although with some limitations. For example, on WhatsApp Web, users will not be able to access previews of the content of links or stickers.
The new version of WhatsApp will also provide the ability to leave reactions to messages. At first, this tool, already familiar to Telegram users, will be available only to participants in the beta testing program on Android devices. In particular, such reactions as “like”, “laughter”, “surprise”, “sadness” and others will be offered. But the negative marks, according to rumors, the developers will not add.
The exact release date of the updated version of the messenger is still unknown.
