WhatsApp Beta Adds Status Reaction Notification Toggle

New feature gives users control over status update reaction alerts

WhatsApp is rolling out a new beta update for Android with version It comes with an enhanced user experience for status updates. The update introduces a reaction notification toggle that gives users more control over their notifications.

Building upon the quick reaction feature that WhatsApp had been developing, the latest beta version takes it a step further by providing an option to turn off notifications for ‘Like reactions’ on status updates. This means users can choose not to be alerted every time someone reacts to their status, which can be especially useful for those who receive numerous reactions.

The ability to disable reaction notifications can help reduce disruptions and prevent the notification panel from being cluttered with WhatsApp reaction alerts. However, for users who still want to view reactions at their convenience, this update allows them to do so without constant interruptions.
