WhatsApp for iOS continues work on new message reaction feature
WhatsApp has been working on new reaction features for at least a few months. Now, there’s more pieces of evidence regarding the development of this function.
As spotted by always-reliable WABetaInfo, the new beta version of WhatsApp, 126.96.36.199, brings the ability to manage reaction notifications with new settings to disable them or change their tone.
With that, users can be alerted (or not) by new reactions the same way they are with messages and groups notifications. Even though WhatsApp is working on this feature, reactions are still not available for public beta testers to try it out.
Previously, WABetaInfo said messages can have an infinite amount of reactions but they will stop being counted when reaching 999 of them, after that, a “+” sign will appear. Another important piece of information is that reactions aren’t anonymous so
