According to the WABetaInfo portal, in the beta version of the WhatsApp messenger for Android, number 22.214.171.124, the ability to create polls in private chats has been added.
Earlier, WhatsApp testers have already found a similar function in the messenger for group chat participants. Now you can create polls in personal correspondence.
At the same time, the interface and functionality remained the same as in the case of group chats. Users will be able to create a poll with up to 12 answer options.
Polls in group and private chats are encrypted, and even developers will not be able to recognize users who have chosen one or another answer. The innovation is at the stage of beta testing.
In the stable version of WhatsApp, this innovation should appear after the end of testing.

Twitter on the rise: Elon Musk began to recruit employees again after a wave of layoffs, and also told what to expect
Twitter’s current owner and CEO, Elon Musk, appears to be done with layoffs and has already started hiring new ones. This follows from the slides he posted on his social media account.
So, on the first slide there is the phrase “We are recruiting”, although there are no details yet. The list of vacancies or other requirements is not given. However, early innovations at the company cut Twitter’s staff in half, so the company is sure to recruit a lot of people.
In addition, Musk shared other data from the presentation. It claims that the number of manifestations of hatred on the social network has decreased in recent days, and the number of fake accounts has also decreased.
But the number of new users on Twitter has grown dramatically – more than 2 million people are registered per day. That’s why Musk said that in 12-18 months it will be possible to talk about a billion users a month.
Finally, the billionaire said that the new Twitter 2.0 application will be universal and will support the payment system, encryption of personal correspondence, videos and other innovations. In addition, the slide mentions a “Long Tweets” mode, although it’s not clear when it will be launched.
At the same time, many brands have refused to place ads on Twitter, the reason given by Musk’s chaotic approach to managing the company.
A billion monthly Twitter users? Elon Musk believes that this is quite possible in the future of a year and a half
Elon Musk tweeted slides from his Twitter 2.0 presentation, to which psychology author Jordan Peterson responded. He said “this is what failure looks like”. But Musk disagreed.
The new head of Twitter did not enter into controversy, but was marked by a statement that attracts attention. “I think I see the prospect of reaching a billion [пользователей] monthly every 12-18 months“, he wrote. We leave, in Musk’s view, everything that is being done now (and will be done later on the social network) is not a failure at all, but, on the contrary, growth. Moreover, the growth is expected to be significant: Musk earlier said that the number of active Twitter users reached 259.4 million.
Meanwhile, according to the Financial Times, citing employees of leading advertising agencies, many of the world’s major brands have refused to advertise on Twitter due to Elon Musk’s chaotic approach to managing the company.
“This is a rather unique situation. Confusion, damage, nothing on this scale had ever happened before. Never“, – said the top manager of the Big Four advertising agency (it includes the American Interpublic Group of Companies, Omnicom Group, the French Publicis Groupe and the British WPP).
“He seems to have alienated even those advertisers who wanted him to succeed.”, said another top manager of the advertising agency.
