- The first news of the week is about the desktop app. WhatsApp has pushed a new fix for WhatsApp Desktop, restoring the ability to generate link previews. This was broken in a previous update due to some technical issues, but the fix has finally addressed the issue. Note that it is still not possible to generate link previews on WhatsApp Web. Further information is available in the mentioned article.
- We have published an article about polls on WhatsApp beta for iOS (they are still under development), showing that it will be possible to add up to 12 options.
- The new archive is finally available in the latest beta of WhatsApp beta for Windows (UWP version). This was one of the missing features and more is surely coming in the next updates.
- WhatsApp has released the WhatsApp beta for Android 188.8.131.52 update, that offers the ability to react to messages to certain beta testers, but there is more: WhatsApp is also developing a new version of message reactions that allows picking more different emojis, available in a future update of the app. In our opinion, this is the best news of the week.
