WhatsApp adds new features to polls and captions

WhatsApp introduced In-chat polls last year. Now it has brought new features to polls and captions, making them more productive.

New features in Polls

  • Create Single-Vote Polls: WhatsApp now allows people to vote only once by turning off the multiple answers option when creating a poll.
  • Search for Polls in Your Chats: You can now filter messages by polls, just like you do for photos, videos or links by heading to Polls option in the search
  • Stay Updated on Poll Results: You will now receive notifications when people vote on your polls and also see how many people have voted in total
Forwarding With Captions and Sharing Documents with Captions

Already available in beta, WhatsApp now lets everyone forward media along with captions as an option. You can also rewrite the caption to add extra information when sharing photos between chats,

Just like when sharing images or videos, you can also share documents with caption before sharing.


Both the features have started rolling out globally and will be available to everyone in the coming weeks.
