WhatsApp is making it much faster to reply to friend’s messages


WHATSAPP has come up with a new way for its 2billion users to reply to messages that will hopefully speed things up a little.

The popular messaging app is constantly developing features and a different shortcut option could be on the cards next.

At the moment on desktop, you have two ways to reply to someone.

You can either double tap the message row twice.

Or you can select the drop down arrow next to the message and select reply there.

But a leaked screenshots shows a brand new message reply shortcut.

With it, there will be a new reply button, which means you can respond in just one tap.

It is set to appear next to the reactions button which was only recently launched itself.

But as WABetaInfo – who revealed the new feature – explain, it’s still “under development” for now.

“Probably you might be wondering why WhatsApp is not immediately releasing a simple feature like that,” the site explained.

“When a feature is marked as under development, it may already be ready in some cases, but WhatsApp may need some time to decide if it is really the case to release it to users.”

As is always the case with early beta testing, WhatsApp may decide to scrap the idea altogether.

So we’ll have to wait and see with any future updates when they land.

In the meantime, we can also look forward to a massive change in the pipeline that will tidy up WhatsApp once and for all.
