Previous news? WhatsApp beta for Android what’s new? This is a bug fix update that finally addresses an issue with notifications

During the past month, WhatsApp released the ability to react to status updates to some lucky users that tested the latest versions of WhatsApp beta for Android and iOS. After some weeks, WhatsApp also launched a small test by enabling this feature to some lucky people that use stable releases on the App Store. Yesterday, after releasing the WhatsApp for iOS 22.21.75 update on the App Store, we noticed that the official changelog reports several new features but the one that’s new and has been widely rolled out to users is exactly the ability to react to status updates!

As mentioned in the official changelog, you can now react to status updates by choosing one of these available emojis: 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. The best way to test the feature is to open a status update and swipe up: if you see 8 emojis, it means the feature is available for your account.
Even if WhatsApp is releasing this feature to everyone, there may be some accounts that will receive this feature over the coming weeks as mentioned at the end of the official changelog: so keep your version of WhatsApp up to date in order to get the feature later.

The ability to react to status updates is finally available for more iOS users so be sure to update the app from the App Store to check if the feature is really enabled for your WhatsApp account.
