Meta-owned WhatsApp is reportedly rolling out a new feature that will let poll makers limit users to only one option, which is available to some beta testers on Android. According to WABetaInfo, this feature will allow users to choose only one option which they feel most comfortable with. The report also states that the feature is helpful as it will make poll results more accurate as users are limited to one option.
Furthermore, it is also useful in cases where only one answer is required. This is because when users have only one option to choose from, they are more likely to engage in polls and think more deeply about their choices. The report also states that the feature is under development for iOS as well and after installing the latest WhatsApp beta for iOS update, some beta testers may be able to access the feature.
Meanwhile, WhatsApp is also rolling out a tweaked link preview interface on iOS beta. For beta testers, a new row will now appear above the chat bar when a link is entered into the platform, and the application will animate the row when loading the link preview. Previously, users had no indication whether or not the platform was loading the preview, which undoubtedly led to confusion and wasted time while they waited for it to appear.
WhatsApp also announced two new updates to “Groups” on WhatsApp — new controls for administrators, and the ability to view groups more generally with ease. The new features, which will roll out globally in the coming weeks, come just months after WhatsApp launched Communities, a feature that offered larger, more structured discussion groups.
