WhatsApp is working on in-app surveys and the ability to text yourself from linked devices, according to reports.
WhatsApp is apparently developing a new in-app survey conversation tool that will be used to gather input on new features, products, and more.
WhatsApp allegedly sent users a request for a secure chat while soliciting comments. According to the article, users would be able to refuse such WhatsApp invitations. A new function that allows users to send messages to themselves from connected devices is also claimed to be in development.
According to WABetaInfo, a WhatsApp feature tracker, WhatsApp may be working on a safe in-app survey conversation. Users should be allowed to decline invitations to survey chats and even stop WhatsApp from delivering future polls. According to reports, WhatsApp will keep user input from this poll private.
According to the article, WhatsApp will solely utilize the survey chat for feedback reasons. There is no word on when this functionality will be made accessible to users. However, it is planned to be released to a relatively small number of users at first.
In related news, WhatsApp may be working on allowing users to send messages to themselves between linked devices. This functionality should be accessible in future releases. It is thought to be an update to the earlier this year published multi-device support.
Currently, WhatsApp only displays the chat with a user's phone number on the primary device. When utilizing several devices, it is not supported.
Users looking for contacts on WhatsApp for Desktop beta will see their names at the top of the list, according to the feature tracker. Furthermore, this conversation may appear while attempting to log in from a new smartphone. This functionality is scheduled to be available shortly on WhatsApp for Android and iOS. It is thought to be in the works and might be released at a later date.
