WhatsApp is working on a multi-device functionality as well as emoji replies for status posts.

Both the multi-device feature and quick reactions on WhatsApp status updates are currently in development.

(1) Support for multi-device on smartphones and tablets has been discovered in the WhatsApp beta for Android.

(2) WhatsApp beta for desktop includes the ability to swiftly reply to status changes with eight emoji options.

(3) There are even WhatsApp status updates shown in the conversation list.

With the rate at which things are moving, it appears that WhatsApp will be bursting at the seams with new features. Meta, WhatsApp’s parent company, is expanding on capabilities like emoji reactions, status updates, and multi-device support that are already available on WhatsApp and its sibling companies Facebook and Instagram. If you’ve used the latter two applications to send rapid emoji replies to your friends’ status/story updates, WhatsApp Status will soon follow suit. Similarly, some, if not all, of you must have utilized the phone-to-PC multi-device functionality. You may now use the same WhatsApp number on both your primary phone and your backup phone/tablet.

Both these features were spotted and reported by WABetaInfo. So, let’s see what the report tells us.

HOW DOES WHATSAPP’S MULTI-DEVICE FEATURE WORK

You can join two phones to a single WhatsApp account with WhatsApp beta for Android 2.22.10.13. Here’s how to do it: “Register Device as Companion” is the new option. When you try to open a WhatsApp account on a second device (phone/tablet), this message will show.

A QR code scanner may be found in the WhatsApp settings > Linked Devices section on the main phone. Use it to scan the QR code that appears on the screen of the secondary device.

The devices will link once they’ve been scanned and approved. So, with the other phone/tablet, you can access your WhatsApp account.

HOW EMOJI-BASED WHATSAPP QUICK REACTIONS WORK

WhatsApp Quick Reactions are a “means to swiftly send an emoji when viewing a status update on WhatsApp, so the same tool we use on Instagram when reacting to a story!” according to WABetaInfo.

Smiling Face with Heart-Eyes, Face with Tears of Joy, Face with Open Mouth, Crying Face, Folded Hands, Clapping Hands, Party Popper, and Hundred Points will be among the new emojis available for instant replies.

Currently, the reactions appear as “a basic emoji message” on the receiver’s chat screen. However, it’s possible that the corporation is still experimenting with the best manner to deliver the responses.

In related news, WhatsApp could also come up with in-chat group polls, new chat filters, and an option to see status updates right within your chats list.
