WhatsApp Reaction Feature: WhatsApp is finally rolling out the Reactions feature, which is also the most-awaited feature. The change is also not surprising as the company recently revealed a list of new features that it was planning to release. The news was confirmed by Meta’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg via his Facebook Account.
Earlier in April 2022, WhatsApp had announced that various new features will be rolling out on the app including the Communities feature along with the support for more people in a WhatsApp Voice Call.
WhatsApp has also been preparing to bring a feature that will allow users all around the world to give a quick reaction to the WhatsApp Status Updates.
The change on WhatsApp is expected after a new feature was recently introduced on the photo-sharing Instagram, where the users can react with quick emojis. Reportedly, while WhatsApp is working on a feature to react with emojis on the messages, it is also developing a feature that will allow the users to give quick reactions on status.
WhatsApp Reactions: What will be different?
WhatsApp has rolled out a reactions feature. Initially, the users will be able to respond to a message only through six emoji reactions which will include laugh, love, surprise, thanks, and sad. However, there are chances that the users will be able to get to use all the emojis in the future.
The quick reaction feature will work by long-pressing any particular chat, then the user can select the emoji as per the theme of the message and react instantly.
