The latest WhatsApp beta for iOS shows that the Meta-owned messaging app may soon allow users to create and share polls in groups. WABetainfo spots the new feature in WhatsApp beta for iOS 22.214.171.124.|
We regularly hear about the new features that may come to WhatsApp in future updates. Features like new drawing tools and message reactions. However, the ability to create polls could be a practical feature for groups and allows for conducting a quick survey.
As you can see in the screenshots, there is a page for creating poll questions. Also, users can even list out options or choices that group members can vote on.
The feature is still in development, and the release date is unknown. However, we may see the polling feature come live in the next few months. According to the source, creating polls is only possible in groups and is end-to-end encrypted.
The users constantly criticize WhatsApp for its lack of innovative features compared to Telegram. It seems that criticisms have been effective and made WhatsApp invest in developing new features to catch up with Telegram.
Telegram has allowed for creating polls since 2018, and in terms of meeting users’ demands, it is doing far better than WhatsApp.
Moreover, WABetainfo confirms that WhatsApp is also working on a dedicated “Community” tab alongside the polling feature. As visible in the screenshot, the Community tab will replace the camera tab located on the left side. The new tab allows users to keep track of groups and communities they’re part of.
To dig more into WhatsApp’s new feature, it’s good to know that the Meta-owned messaging app has started to roll out a new voice call interface for some users. The new interface is more user-friendly, and it also has a background instead of a black page.
