React to a message with any emoji
A new update has reached WhatsApp Beta for iOS, which has allowed us to know that soon we will be able to react to a message with the emoji we want.

WhatsApp calls evolve with 3 new features that we are looking forward to receiving. Perhaps the most important of them is the one that allows us mute a user during a call, so we can avoid being disturbed while we have a conversation.

Finally, WhatsApp will soon show a notice at the bottom of the screen when someone joins the video call. This is a very useful indicator, especially when participating in calls with many participants.

Previously, in the beta version it was possible to stop the recording and listen to the audio, but it was not possible to resume it to continue with the audio. Thanks to this new update, you will be able to stop audio recording if someone or something interruptsknowing that later you can pick up right where you left off without any problem.
Automatic creation of image albums
Another novelty that has come to Windows Beta is the automatic creation of image albums. This way, when a user sends more than 3 videos and photos in a row, these will be automatically grouped into an album so that the receiver can see them more comfortably. Thus, you will not have to scroll through the chat to see each of the images, you will be able to see them all from the album.
Reactions come to WhatsApp on Windows
Users using the Beta version of WhatsApp on Windows can also react to messages now. In this case, they will find a button with an emoji on one side of the message. By clicking on it, a window with six emojis will be displayed with which you can react to a message. Seeing that it will soon be available for Android and iOS, the most normal thing is that in the future you can also react with any emoticon in WhatsApp for Windows.
