A few days ago, we published a community invite link to join our announcement group on WhatsApp: thanks to the announcement group, you can get our news right within WhatsApp. Isn’t that great?
Since the participants’ list is private, it doesn’t show up within the announcement group and this is exactly the reason why it is not possible to react to messages within the announcement group: reacting to a message would reveal phone numbers so this feature is not available right now. But there is news: WhatsApp is working on bringing the ability to react to messages within this group for a future update of the app!
