WhatsApp Reactions beta update for Android: According to a source, several testers are receiving the upgraded beta version of WhatsApp Reactions for Android and iOS. Users of WhatsApp will be able to respond to messages using any emoji on the keyboard thanks to this new functionality.

On all platforms, there are currently just six reply choices accessible to consumers. This functionality has previously been under development for a while on the instant messaging service owned by Meta.

Additionally, WhatsApp is releasing an enhanced message deletion time restriction for Android beta testers and everyone else.

According to WABetainfo, a site that tests new WhatsApp features before they are made available to the general public. There have developments around the distribution of an improved version of WhatsApp Reactions.

Platform-specific upgrades for this functionality include WhatsApp beta for Android 2.22.15.6 and 2.22.15.7 and WhatsApp beta for iOS 22.14.0.71.

The current six emoji selections will have a “+” sign at the end so that testers on Android and iOS may respond to messages with any other emoji on the keyboard.

On Instagram, another service owned by Meta, users may already utilize this functionality while sending direct messages.

According to initial reports, the enhanced WhatsApp function operates similarly to Instagram. By tapping and holding a message in a WhatsApp conversation, beta testers may respond to it.

A “+” symbol will see in the response tray. The Android Reactions keyboard may access by tapping the icon.

There is a draggable section to choose and search for any emoji in the WhatsApp beta for iOS. As previously said, WhatsApp has seen developing this capability for Android, iOS, and albums.

Another WhatsApp-related development is an improved time limit to erase messages for everyone in WhatsApp beta for Android (version 2.22.15.8). The new restriction, announced earlier this year, is two days and 12 hours. Before this, the time frame was 1 hour, 8 minutes, and 16 seconds.
