WHATSAPP has developed a new way for its two billion users to reply to messages that will hopefully speed things up a bit.
The popular messaging app is constantly developing features and another shortcut option might be next.
Right now you have two ways to reply to someone on desktop.
You can either double-tap the message line.
Or you can select the drop-down arrow next to the message and select Reply from there.
But a leaked screenshot shows a brand new message reply shortcut.
With that, there will be a new reply button, meaning you can reply with just a tap.
It’s supposed to appear next to the reaction button, which just recently launched itself.
But as WABetaInfo – who unveiled the new feature – explains, it’s still “under development” for now.
“You’re probably wondering why WhatsApp doesn’t release such a simple feature right away,” the site explained.
“In some cases, when a feature is marked as under development, it might already be ready, but WhatsApp might need some time to decide if it’s really the case to release it to users.”
As always with early beta testing, WhatsApp may decide to scrap the idea altogether.
So we’ll have to wait and see when future updates land.
In the meantime, we can also look forward to a massive change in the pipeline that will clean up WhatsApp once and for all.
