WhatsApp is one of the best smartphone apps for sending messages and media to Android users, and the previous beta made it more complicated than it needed to be. It’s encouraging to see that WhatsApp appears to have heeded user feedback and returned to a functional UI. For instance, WhatsApp’s version beta was introduced to remove the media bar that allowed people quick access to photos and videos when trying to send them to friends and family.

However, certain users may notice settings to manage reaction notifications after updating to this version, which was already accessible in the latest WhatsApp beta for Android update.

If you see those new settings, it doesn’t mean you can already react to messages, but it could be an indication that message reactions will be available to iOS beta testers soon, so keep your WhatsApp version up to date and stay connected to Techgenyz for more frequent updates.
