Polls help make decisions when there are many people in the same conversation. But the Whatsapp want to do different: in addition to groups, the tool must also land in the individual chats of the messenger for Android and iPhone (iOS). The information comes from a discovery of the WABetaInfo revealed this Saturday (22).
The traces appeared in versions 220.127.116.11 for Android and 18.104.22.168 for iOS of WhatsApp Beta. The site revealed that the app is also experimenting with polls on one-on-one conversations. Before, the feature only showed up in group chats.
Following in the footsteps of what has been revealed so far, the function in conversations with a single person does not make any difference. Through the “Polls” option, users will be able to ask a question and prepare up to twelve answers. Afterwards, chat participants will be entitled to respond to an alternative when the survey is published.
WhatsApp will have polls in individual chats
The availability of questions in individual conversations is something that even Telegram does not have – the messenger, it is worth remembering, has been offering group polls for a long time. However, right away, I was wondering: after all, what’s the use of a vote if you’re going to ask just one person? O WABetaInfo have an answer:
“At first, we didn’t know why WhatsApp would allow users to create polls in their individual chats, but it can be a fun way to ask something when you already have different options,” the site said.
Useful or not, some Beta users are already getting the news. To find out if you have already received the polls, just open a conversation and access the option to send media. Then, just tap the “Polls” button to create your poll.
There is still no forecast for the release of the feature to all users of the messenger.
