It’s been speculated that Meta’s owned WhatsApp would receive notification options for message responses. WhatsApp was said to be allowing users to reply to individual messages in August, similar to how Instagram’s message reactions operate. WhatsApp will also include a message responses page that will show who liked the message and which emojis were used.
According to WABetaInfo, a WhatsApp options tracker, the Meta moment messaging app is getting notifications for message reactions. iOS users will soon be able to choose which alerts they want to receive – both for individual and group chats – as well as control notification tones. However, according to the article, users may still have to wait a while before being able to respond to WhatsApp messages.
The Meta-owned instant messaging app is getting alerts for message responses, according to WABetaInfo, a WhatsApp features tracker. WhatsApp for iOS users will soon be able to personalize which notifications they get, as well as the notification noises they hear, for solo and group chats.
Users would not be able to react to messages via WhatsApp for some time, according to the report. The update is now available for WhatsApp beta for iOS 22.2.72. At this time, there is no word on when this feature will be accessible for Android smartphones.
The WhatsApp message responses functionality was first discussed in August. Instant messaging application, like iMessage, Instagram, and Twitter, is said to allow users to reply to individual messages. Currently, WhatsApp users may only express themselves in a discussion thread using stickers, GIFs, and emoticons.
According to the September report, when the functionality is released, WhatsApp would display message responses. The message reactions will display as a little discussion box beneath the chat bubble. Because the reactions will not be anonymous, all users in the chat will be able to see who replied to a certain message.
