Recently, WhatsApp has implemented the possibility to create polls in chat groups. This is an excellent feature for when we want to collect the opinion of everyone involved on a topic.
Now the same functionality has been expanded to individual conversations as well. That is, you will also be able to create polls even when you are in a chat room with only one of your contacts.
WhatsApp also implements voting in individual chats
The novelty was advanced by the publication WABetainfo, always attentive to all the news that WhatsApp brings to its users. This option was discovered in the beta channel of the application, strictly speaking in the 188.8.131.52 from the app to Android.
If you already have this beta version of WhatsApp installed on your smartphone, you may already be able to create polls even in individual chats. As you can see from the image below, its operation will be the same as the option for groups.
In effect, users will be able to create polls to gauge an individual’s opinion on a topic. The poll creator will be able to define up to 12 options that will best reflect the respondent’s opinion.
Whenever a vote is cast, the vote will be updated accordingly. As already mentioned, this is the same behavior as the option recently made available for WhatsApp chat groups.
Reinforcing its commitment to user privacy, WhatsApp reiterates end-to-end encryption also in the polls created when this feature is open. It means that no one other than the participants in that chat will know the outcome of your opinions.
Not even Meta administrators and those responsible for WhatsApp management will have access to the information provided through these polls. Everything will be encrypted to ensure the privacy of the participants.
After this initial period of testing, the option to create polls will eventually reach the stable version of WhatsApp as well. However, we still don’t know when that will happen.
