WhatsApp is developing a polling feature in group chats. The innovation will allow users to conduct voting in a convenient way without involving third-party services.
The poll creation interface in group chats found the WABetaInfo portal in the beta version of WhatsApp for iOS. While it does not work fully, it is already obvious that the company is implementing the function in the messenger and testing will begin soon.
Polls, like all WhatsApp messages, will be end-to-end encrypted to keep your data private. It is not yet known how many answer options can be specified and whether there are any restrictions when creating a vote.
At the moment, the only way to conduct a survey on WhatsApp is to use a third-party service by posting its link in a chat. Compared to Telegram, where the poll is created by group tools, the method is inconvenient: you have to log out of the messenger, votes are usually accompanied by ads, and it is impossible to guarantee the security of user data.
