WhatsApp Lets Users React To Messages With Any Emoji
Table of Contents
After a long wait, WhatsApp has finally made the feature available for its users. Long-pressing a message will reveal a menu containing the previous six emoji reactions. From here, you can tap the plus icon to see all available emojis. Some of the options available include the saluting emoji, the melting face, and various variations of skin tone.
WhatsApp Emoji Reactions
When a message is received, WhatsApp will prompt the recipient to use the appropriate emoji reaction. If they don’t know how to do this, they can change their default emoji by long-pressing the message and choosing the “reactions” option from the pop-up menu. To change your emoji, hover your cursor over the message and select the new one. Once you have selected your new emoji reaction, tap “Save” to save it.
Emoji reactions have been rolled out to a wider group of users on WhatsApp recently. Users can now select from a range of six different emojis to add to a message. Then, when a user is finished, they can tap “plus” to bring up the full emoji keyboard. This means that, with WhatsApp, you can now use almost every emoji available. The change has come at a perfect time because the social media app is continually upgrading its features.
The feature is not limited to Android phones, though. The iPhone 11 and Samsung Galaxy M51 were the first to get the feature, as WhatsApp historically releases new features for iOS users first. While the Galaxy M51 didn’t get the feature right away, it got it a couple of days after the iPhones. In short, WhatsApp emoji reactions will be available to all users very soon. It’s worth checking out if the feature has arrived on your smartphone.
WhatsApp’s emoji reactions are already available to some users, but a wider range of expressions will soon be available. The app has more than two billion users and has worked on making the feature available to all of them. While the app has not yet been released to the general public, it’s expected to launch in the coming days. If you’re a beta tester, be sure to test out the new feature on a compatible device before you download it.
