WhatsApp could soon allow you to do surveys


2 min read

There is no denying the fact that when it comes to adding or testing new features, WhatsApp is definitely active. While the company may not want to test many advanced features, you still get access to almost all the basic and advanced features you probably want, in the first place. Now, the company is apparently testing a new feature that would allow users to conduct surveys. Based on the latest rumors, this feature will be exclusive to groups, which makes more than sense.

The information was noticed by WaBetaInfo, and according to them, WhatsApp is currently developing a new feature that would allow users to create polls in group chats so users can quickly and easily poll group members, a feature that may not seem convenient to some but actually makes a lot of sense.




The publication even shared a screenshot of an upcoming feature that would allow WhatsApp users to create surveys in group conversations.

When this is done, on the next screen, users will be given the opportunity to specify the choices or options that members will be able to vote for. it is important to know that the survey function is still in its early stages and is also not available for use. The publication stated that the surveys will be available only in WhatsApp groups and will be encrypted from end to end. It is also worth mentioning that Telegram already has this option from 2018, so WhatsApp is quite behind them. But, as the saying goes, better late than never.

In addition, WhatsApp seems to be testing a dedicated community card that will help users track groups as well as the communities of which they are apart. This card will replace the current camera card on the left.

Options for creating surveys and a dedicated Community card are still under development and users are still unable to access these features. Of course, we hope that it will reach us all as soon as possible.
