Emoji reactions on Android

WhatsApp has been spotted rolling out this feature to more users.

You may already have emoji reaction capabilities on your handset.

To check hold down a message and if emojis pop up you can click on them to react to the text.

This feature appeared on iOS long before it came to Android.

Bigger groups

Earlier this month, WhatsApp revealed that it’s “slowly rolling out” the ability to add more people to groups.

This will be useful for coordinating big events.

WhatsApp said in a blogpost: “One of the top requests we’ve consistently received is the option to add more people to a chat, so now we’re slowly rolling out the ability to add up to 512 people to a group.

“Building private, safe, and secure communities takes work and we think this series of improvements will help people and groups stay close to one another.”

Leaving in silence

WhatsApp is reportedly working on a feature that will let you leave a group chat without notifying everyone in the group.

This could save you some embarrassment or a fall out.

According to WABetaInfo, WhatsApp is testing out a feature that will only notify you and the group admins when you leave.

It’s unclear when this feature will roll out to the masses but it’s under development in WhatsApp beta.
