WhatsApp will tell you when people are talking about you
WhatsApp is great for letting you know when you’ve received a new message, but also gives you the option to turn off notifications for times when you don’t want to be disturbed. There is now a new preview version of the app that introduces a significant upgrade to notifications that make them even more useful.
While a recent update added profile photos so you can easily see who messaged you, this new update takes it a step further. The change is about notifications, and that means you can more easily find out who has replied to you, or mentioned you, in a group message.
If another member of a group chat replies to a message you posted, or if they @ mentions you, the notification you see now includes that person’s profile picture. Again, this is a relatively minor change, but it’s an adjustment that can make a different world of usability.
While you will need to update to the latest WhatsApp preview version in TestFlight in order to access all of the latest features as options, upgrading does not necessarily guarantee that you will be able to see those new notification images. .
This latest change is just the latest update to notifications, and it comes right after adding profile photos to notifications in iOS. But this most recent update is about more than just changes to notifications.
As WABetaInfo notes, with this beta, WhatsApp has also changed the way app version numbers are formatted. While the previous version of WhatsApp for iOS was 18.104.22.168, the latest one is now listed as 22.1.71 – quite a leap. However, if you check in the app’s settings, it appears to be 22.214.171.124, and it’s not clear when – or, indeed, if – the two will be aligned with each other. the other.
