On Instagram and Facebook Messenger, we have seen the following message reactions. Besides, you get a notification, when someone responds to any of your messages. To WhatsApp, the same feature is coming soon. To any message, you can know that the instant messaging application is working on a text message feature that will allow you to reply.
Now, the new development introduces a three-way messaging app that will also get a feature called ‘Action Notifications’. This has been discussed as a new feature works.
The WhatsApp ‘Action Notifications’ feature is explained
According to a report by WABetaInfo, WhatsApp is working on a Recommended Notifications feature for Android users which is seen in the latest version 220.127.116.11 beta. Earlier, a report said that WhatsApp will also bring the same feature for iOS users as well.
The ‘Action Notifications’ feature on WhatsApp is for users who want to receive notifications when they respond to any texts. If you do not want to receive notifications, you can turn off ‘Action Notifications’. The WABetaInfo report also shares a screenshot showing users can set up “Action Notifications” for efficient group chats.
When Are ‘Action Notifications’ Coming?
Right now, there is no word on when the feature will roll out officially. However, an ‘message reactions’ feature is still under development. We will update you if any further information comes to our attention.
However, the shared screenshot shows a new feature can be accessed from the Notifications section and there will be two options for ‘Action Notifications’ – one is for each chat and the other is for the group. If you turn on the button, you will be notified as soon as one responds to your message, while when you turn it off, you will not receive any notification.
Additionally, the instant messaging app is also working on another feature to increase the time limit for its ‘delete messages for everyone’. As of now, you can delete your messages for everyone within 1 hour, 8 minutes, 16 seconds. This means that the amount of time will soon increase; however, the exact release timeline of this feature is still yet to be revealed.
