WhatsApp is currently working on the ability to react to messages in Community announcement groups. The Meta-owned messaging service has been spotted to work on the capability of the latest beta version of WhatsApp for iOS. If the capability is launched, the users will be able to react to messages that are in Community announcement groups using emojis. The application allows the users to react to individual and group chat messages by selecting any message.
WhatsApp is working on a new feature for an upcoming iOS beta version that will permit users to instantly react to a message in Community announcement groups which is quite similar to the regular group chats.
The feature tracker claimed that the feature was not available for Community announcement group chats as it would reveal the phone number of the users to other Community members. However, the messaging service is reportedly working on the ability to hide the contact details of the user when they react to messages.
A banner that reads to view and sends reactions in this chat update WhatsApp is revealed.
However, it is notable that the feature is currently in the stage of development by the company and could be released in a future beta update of WhatsApp for iOS.
Meanwhile, WhatsApp recently made the introduction of the beta version of its native app for macOS. The native WhatsApp app for macOS contains all the features that are available on the older Electron-based WhatsApp app for Mac computers. Apple MacBook models with M1, M1 Pro, M1 Max, M1 Ultra, M2, M2 Pro, and M2 Max chipsets, along with other MacBook models running macOS 11 Big Sur are supported.
