WhatsApp beta app for Android has brought a whole bunch of goodies with the latest update 2.12.560. This time with a change in the way notifications appear to the user, quick chat actions, and a bonus solid background options.
WhatsApp has introduced a quick reply option to the app, meaning which you can reply back to a chat message directly from the notification. This gives you the comfort of using all the emojis as well. The expanded notification from the app gives a “Reply” button, tapping on which will give us a text box just as similar to that of inside the app.
Next feature to be introduced in the update, is not supposedly a new feature but an improvement to the user experience. Previously, tapping on the display picture of any chat will give us the screen showing different options that can be used on that chat . Then long pressing on the display picture would show a set of actions that can be performed on the chat. Now just tapping on the display picture of any chat directly provides all these set of actions.
Lastly, there is an addition of “Solid colour” option in the background settings for the wallpaper layout. Even the “default” option has changed its icon and appears as a reset symbol which is admittedly a nicer way of representing it.
