In India, WhatsApp now allows users to respond to status updates. Android users received the update via build number 188.8.131.52. WhatsApp has not only added the ability to respond to status updates with emojis, but it has also released new features for Indian users.
These features include the ability to create and share a link for your WhatsApp call from the Calls tab, only admins being notified when you leave a group, group admins being able to delete others’ messages for everyone and all participants being able to see who deleted it, and the ability to undo “delete for me” for a few seconds. WhatsApp stated that these features will be available to all users in the coming weeks.
What exactly is the ‘react to a Status’ function?
It’s not that WhatsApp users couldn’t respond to status updates from their contacts. They could respond by selecting the appropriate emoji from the chatbox/typing slot option. WhatsApp, on the other hand, has made it simple and direct for users to respond to someone’s status story with the ‘react to a Status’ feature.
On the other hand, WhatsApp is introducing a new feature called ‘Call Links,’ which will allow users to create links to make voice and video calls in the same way that apps like Google Chat, Google Meet, and Zoom do. Once a user has created the link, he should be able to share it with his WhatsApp contacts. The ‘Create call link’ option can be found under the calls tab.
