The new update adds more functionality to polls on WhatsApp. With the new update, you can prevent people from voting more than once with single-vote polls. This can be done by turning off ‘allow multiple answers’ when creating a new poll. The feature has been introduced to help users find a definitive answer when required.

Additionally, WhatsApp is making it easier to search for polls in your chats. The search tool will now provide the option to filter messages and search only for ‘Polls’. This will pull up all the polls that have been shared in your chats. WhatsApp will also send notifications whenever people vote on your polls, indicating how many people have voted in total.

WhatsApp Captions

The update also brings enhancements to the caption feature on WhatsApp. WhatsApp allows users to send photos and videos with captions, and if they are forwarded, the same caption goes along with the media. With the new update, you can keep, delete, or rewrite captions in forwarded photos and videos. Moreover, if the media doesn’t have any captions, you can add a new one before hitting send. You can also add captions to documents before sharing them on WhatsApp.


Although the new features may not be major, they can still come in handy for users. WhatsApp has been introducing new features regularly to enhance user experience. The new update is rolling out, so not everyone will receive it immediately. However, it will be available to all users in the coming weeks.

Overall, WhatsApp continues to be one of the most popular messaging apps in the world, and the new update will only make it more useful and efficient for its users.
