WhatsApp will release a function to create surveys within groups

WhatsApp is working to allow users to insert surveys within groups: this is what emerges from the latest beta for iOS analyzed by WABetaInfo. The ability to create surveys, rumor already circulated previously, has been confirmed by the presence of screens in the latest beta that show the creation process, with the possibility of asking a question and setting the default answers that the members of the group will be able to answer.

Surveys will be available only in groups and protected by end-to-end encryption: in other words, only users who participate in the group will be able to see the contents of the survey and the results. It is not known, however, when WhatsApp plans to enable this feature for the final version of the app.

Among the other innovations there would also be a tab called “community” which allows users to collect groups and communities for the purpose of better traceability. From the information available, it appears that the “community” card will replace the currently existing “room” card, taking its place.

The polls function will be very similar to what is already available in Telegram, which has already launched the possibility of creating polls within groups since 2018.
