WHATSAPP is working on a major change to its message response feature.
The new trick was added earlier this month – but it will be updated soon.
These tweaks are usually tested within the WhatsApp beta – a trial version of the app used by fans and developers.
Gadget Blog WABetaInfo digs into the WhatsApp beta to uncover the latest changes.
And the detectives have discovered a new tweak for message emoji reactions that is changing the way photo albums work.
The new feature means you can see detailed response information for WhatsApp auto albums.
“Currently, when someone reacts to a photo or video in an automatic album, it’s not possible to see what media has been reacted to without opening the album,” explains WABetaInfo.
“The next feature will let people do it the same way!”
WhatsApp shows you detailed reaction information with a media thumbnail.
The feature is currently “in development” so it’s impossible to say exactly when it will arrive.
But since it’s a minor change, it could be a matter of weeks.
If you want to try new WhatsApp features in front of your friends, follow our guide below on how to join the beta.
