WhatsApp is enabling quick reply notifications for the Universal Windows Platform. The new quick reply feature is compatible with the latest WhatsApp beta for windows 2.2227.2.0 version available in the Microsoft Store. This update will enable users to reply to incoming messages right within the notification view. The Meta-owned Instant Messaging app had introduced the newly redesigned context menu for windows in a previous update.
But the feature has been currently removed for some unknown reasons. According to the latest reports now the company is releasing another new useful feature for UWP. With this feature now users can finally reply to messages quickly.
WhatsApp enabling quick reply notifications for UWP
In a previous update, the popular Global messenger had released the ability to pause and resume voice notes. After the platform introduced this feature to some select beta testers now, it is releasing some improvements while receiving messages.
According to the latest report of WABetaInfo, when you receive any message while the app is minimized you will see a new notification view. This means that you can reply to messages without having to open the application. Although this feature is common in apps for smartphones still it is new for UWP.
The leading WhatsApp news portal has released a screenshot of the feature. In the screenshot, you can see that with the availability of the quick reply feature you can reply to any incoming message within the notification view. So you don’t have to open the particular message for replying.
As seen there will be a response box in the notification written: “type a reply”. You just have to type and send your reply. WABetaInfo further mentions that this is very important news from the company. It is so because the normal WhatsApp Desktop built with Electron framework does not consist of this feature.
It is exclusively available only for the Universal Windows Platform app. The quick reply feature has been rolled out to everyone using the WhatsApp beta app for windows. If you still don’t see this feature be sure to install the latest WhatsApp version for UWP from the Microsoft Store.
Notably, windows WhatsApp desktop users using the electron framework will not receive this feature at present. However, you will have to wait until the ability to send a reply within notification finally becomes available.
