For improvements

Hi whatsapp developers. I’ve been using whatsapp forever now and it is super useful to contact my beloved family and friends. I would like to propose for you to add a “poll” feature, where the admin of a group can make a simple poll and the members can then vote on it. Before this we have been doing it manually. For example, to ask everyone about their availability for a meeting, the admin would post an empty list in the group. Members who are available and not available will then have to copy, paste and resend the list, with their own name is neither available, not available or others.
But then again, the developers know the app better than we do. If adding this feature will make the app heavier and slower, I guess it is better to keep it as it is. We already love the fast app response that whatsapp offers. Thank you.

Font size problem?

Due to the title, apparently a month ago I found that there is a font size problem in WhatsApp. This problem occurs everytime when I was/am looking at my contacts’ status. I use small font size setting for my phone and usually the WhatsApp will use that font size. It was good until I discovered that the font size on my status and other contact’s status keep changing. Sometimes the font size is normal, sometimes the font size is too small and sometimes the font size is too bigger. I don’t know how to describe this problem but if I scroll through all of my contact’s status, for example if they upload 3 status, first status the font size is normal, next the second status the font size is magically too much bigger, then I went back to the first status, it’s suddenly become really small, then the second status become really small too, finally the third status the font size become really big. Personally, this font size problem is really annoying me as I prefer to use small font size so I would like to have small font size just like my settings for iphone. Apparently, I thought that this was my phone’s problem, then I realized that my friends who use iphone are also having this font size problem. I discovered that this problem occurs after the launch of ios 14 updates for iphone. Sorry for my bad English, the app is good but I really hope you can fix this issue. Thank you in advance.

So far so good with the WhatsApp experience...just two things that hard for me to give 5 star...

1. First is about video call...i already using WhatsApp previous version and it fine actually the video quality its good sound is clear...but after i update to the newest version..i think the last two version its start to upset me...clarity is fine but its start to laggy..i think its about my network problem but my network is fine because i use video call everyday so i know when its fine and not but then i realise its actually from WhatsApp itself.

2. Second is about sticker...please give us a wide range variety of good quality sticker...i know we can get it from third pasty sticker but can you imagine that Telegram already surpass you..by 10 times...Telegram already got animated sticker while WhatsApp still stuck at very little sticker option even you support third party sticker app but Telegram sticker beyond you and those third party sticker...please WhatsApp improve your user experience...you know it hard for someone like me that use sticker alot but have limited sticker option
