The American freeware and most engaged social media, Whatsapp, has added new features to its application. Most users haven’t seen the new WhatsApp features yet. The only thing most users like about Whatsapp is that it continues to keep its application very simple, fast and secure.
Most users were much impressed after seeing these new features in their chat. Surprisingly, some users haven’t seen or realised they can use these features. And also, for you to engage in these new features, you will need to update your WhatsApp application to the current version.
Whatsapp has branded itself in an amazing way whereby users find it simple and easy to use when having a conservation with another user. Whatsapp is saying that “Your Privacy and Security is in their DNA”. This means that your conversation is well secured and safe.
The new WhatsApp feature includes the “Reaction feature” whereby the user can easily react to messages. If you want to react to a specific message, all you have to do is to long-press the message and the reaction feature will pop up. This reaction feature is not fully released to all users.
These reaction features are already found on other platforms like Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, and Messenger. The reactions on Facebook are the same as the ones on WhatsApp. The WhatsApp message reaction features can be found on only Android phones for now.
The WhatsApp message reaction is going to be helpful in the way we react and respond to messages. You can easily react to a message instead of typing it. Don’t be bothered if you are not enrolled in the beta version because it’s coming out soon for all users.
Note: To access these reaction features, you will need to update your WhatsApp version. After updating your WhatsApp and you are not able to get the reaction feature, that means you are not enrolled in the beta version program but the feature will soon be coming to you.
Another new feature that was added to the new update on WhatsApp is the “Voice Message” popular known as a voice note. This feature has been rolled out to all android and iOS users. Whatsapp has really advanced the use of voice message to its users.
You can now draft and preview your voice message before sending it to another user. Voice messages can also be played at a speed range from 1.5x to 2x. Another amazing change that was included in the voice message update is the Out of Chat Playback.
A user can now play any voice message outside the chat and can do other multitask things like reading and responding to messages while listening to the voice message. The voice message can also be paused, go outside the chat to do a different task and resume the voice message at where you paused.
