The “Reaction” function soon available on WhatsApp iOS

Published

on

A few days after appearing on Telegram, the Reactions function is well on its way to becoming part of the Whatsapp iOS options. It must be said that the instant messaging service has been working in this direction for almost six months now. A recent report, which the WABetaInfo site was able to get their hands on, shows that the process is at the finalization stage.

Indeed, the feature could very soon be available on the public version of Whatsapp iOS. It should look a lot like the options already available on iMessage and Facebook.

A feature deployed on beta versions of the application

For the moment, it is not yet possible to react directly to a message on Whatsapp via the “Reactions” option. However, everything seems to fit together correctly so that some observers think it shouldn’t take long.

Thus, the WABetInfo site recently discovered that version 22.2.72 of Whatsapp Beta for iOS has new settings for managing notifications. Among them, therefore, is the option to use the Reactions function. For WABetInfo, this information would mean only one thing: the functionality is very close to being launched on the iOS version of Whatsapp.

In addition, it should be noted that the beta version of Whatsapp iOS in question includes other interesting options. These include the ability for beta testers to decide whether or not to receive notifications about their “Reactions”.

The reactions of Whatsapp iOS: rather Instagram or Twitter

On the beta version of the messaging application, the possibilities in terms of emojis offered by the “Reactions” function are somewhat limited. Users cannot reply in this way to a message using more than six emojis.

The emojis available for this purpose are: Like, Heart, Laugh, Surprised, Sad and Thank you. However, nothing says that on the version intended for the general public, WhatsApp iOS will renew the same system. It may well be that the social network adopts the same system as that of Instagram.

The latter allows users to react to a message through any emoji. In the event that Whatsapp iOS decides to remain on a limited choice then we can consider that the messaging platform has chosen the Twitter method.

Finally, it should be noted that Whatsapp iOS should allow users to have a global view of all the reactions received by one of their messages. These are going to be organized into two different tabs. This possibility will be very interesting for group messages in the sense that it should allow you to do a quick poll.

In November, there was a revolution in the ranking, which Antutu experts had been waiting for for several months. The latest smartphone Vivo X90 based on the new Dimensity 9200 platform scored almost 1.2 million points, overtaking all the flagships based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 that previously reigned in the ranking. Note that Vivo X90 became the world’s first smartphone on SoC Dimensity 9200.

However, places from second to ten belong to models equipped with SoC Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1.

39 Xiaomi Redmi and Poco phone models will receive MIUI

Xiaomi was supposed to unveil the MIUI 14 firmware and Xiaomi 13 and Xiaomi 13 Pro flagship phones today, but the event was canceled due to the death of former Chinese President Jiang Zemin. However, a detailed list of innovations and changes implemented in MIUI 14 has already been published on the Web. Usually, such a list is shown to the user when installing a fresh firmware.

Personalization options have been expanded: new widgets and “super icons” will appear, something like a Tamagotchi (animated image of a plant or pet) can now be installed on the home screen, and applications that are used most often will be highlighted in folders on the home screen.

In MIUI 14, you can click on any text in the gallery image, highlighting it in this way, and translate it into one of 8 languages. There will also be “live subtitles” in the system. The Mi Smart Hub app will be radically updated – it will work faster and get support for more devices. MIUI 14 will allow you to forward incoming calls to a tablet, and if the phone is connected to a TV and text input is required, then this can all be done on a smartphone.

MIUI 14 will bring family-focused services. It will be possible to create a group of up to 8 people with different restrictions for each and share content in the group. “Family services” will allow you to set a common album as a screensaver on TV, exchange data on the physical condition and vital signs of all members of the group. Child accounts have a range of parental controls, from limiting screen time to using apps only from the safe zone.

In MIUI 14, the Xiao AI proprietary voice assistant will be greatly improved: it can be used as a scanner, translator, spam call filter, etc.

Xiaomi has already talked about a number of other innovations in MIUI 14: the firmware file itself will become smaller, applications will take up less memory, and almost all pre-installed programs (with the exception of the eight main ones) can be deleted.

True, not all OnePlus phones will be updated for so long. The new policy will only affect “certain models”, and these will most likely be flagships. And the very first contender is OnePlus 11.

OnePlus also confirmed the release of OxygenOS 13.1 firmware in the first half of 2023. The emphasis will be on safety. Also, the company is already working on OxygenOS 14, but there are no details about it yet: it’s too early to talk about the firmware, which will be released in October-November next year.
