Meta Platforms Inc META instant messaging service, Whatsappintroduces a feature to limit poll choices to just one option.
What happened: Meta released the WhatsApp for iOS 8/23/78 update on the app store and the platform is now rolling out the ability to limit polls to just one choice, after to WaBetaInfo.
The WhatsApp poll feature can be useful when multiple people are trying to reach a majority consensus on a decision. It was originally launched last November and can be used for both group and individual chats.
Prior to this update, users could vote for more than one option. With this new update, the result of the poll could be considered more accurate.
It’s worth noting that if you didn’t get any of the previously released features, there’s a chance it could become available to your account in the coming weeks, as stated in the official changelog, according to the report.
Why it matters: Meta announced this in April WhatsApp users can now log into a single account on up to four smartphones, so you don’t have to juggle multiple accounts on different devices.
The Mark Zuckerberg-run company reported its First Quarter Results Call last month where the CEO stated that Meta wants to integrate artificial intelligence or AI agents into its flagship apps.
