Take Control of Your Reactions

WhatsApp Reactions are an addition to how we express ourselves in our personal or group conversations. It looks like WhatsApp has taken cues from Instagram while launching this feature which makes a lot of sense. While WhatsApp Reactions can help you express better, sometimes it is possible that you might not be able to see the Last Seen information of your contacts. If you have ever faced such an issue, we have a post to help you find the possible answers for why you can’t see Last Seen on WhatsApp.
