Earlier this year, WABeta discovered a new WhatsApp feature called “quick replies to status updates. This will allow users to respond to status updates by using emojis. Thanks to the recent WhatsApp beta for Android 184.108.40.206 update. It reveals that WhatsApp is finally working on adding the same feature to the Android app, the feature was discovered during the development of the WhatsApp Desktop beta.
WhatsApp will soon allow people to respond to status updates with emoji reactions on Android. This would allow users to share responses about a particular status update quickly using eight emojis without leaving any comments. This functionality is already available on WhatsApp’s sister firms Instagram and Messenger. The messaging platform is said to be rolling out the update via the Google Play Beta Programme, with the 220.127.116.11 beta for Android.
