WhatsApp Announces Major Update To Service – Here’s How To Try It Out First

Source: 3news

First access to the upgrade will go to iPhone users, and it is anticipated to bring the administration of both group and individual chat notifications. When Android users will be able to use the useful function is presently unknown.
Through the app’s Beta program, anyone can now get an update. By registering, users can test the app’s most recent experimental features, some of which will never be made available to the wider public.
 

Although the upgrade allows you to control message reactions, you are not currently able to respond to messages.
 

You can now control when you should receive notifications for reactions, for individual chats and groups, as well as what tone to use when you do. This is according to WhatsApp insiders, WABetaInfo.
“Unfortunately, it’s still not possible to react to messages, but the fact it’s possible to manage these settings suggests that message reactions will be available very soon.”

Here’s how to register for the new update and try it out before everyone else:

For Android Phones

  • Open WhatsApp > tap More options.
  • Tap Linked Devices.
  • Tap Multi-device beta.
  • Tap Join Beta.

For iPhones

  • Go to WhatsApp Settings.
  • Tap Linked Devices.
  • Tap Multi-Device Beta.
  • Tap Join Beta.

If you don’t use your phone for over 14 days, your linked devices will become disconnected.


Once you’ve joined the beta program, you’ll be able to try out every new version of WhatsApp before it is released to the general public.

And with not all the features ever reaching general use, it’s a good opportunity to try out some secret tech.
