WhatsApp for iOS beta now has iMessage-style reactions
WhatsApp has long been believed to be working on a feature
similar to iMessage's reactions. However, the most recent update indicates that
the feature may be ready for public use. The messaging app's Reactions feature
would allow users to respond to messages with an emoji. This feature is already
accessible on Facebook and iMessage. In fact, it's visible in Instagram DMs as
WhatsApp is working on the ability to respond to messages in
a future update. You can tap on one of the reactions
to react to the messages that appear underneath each message. According to the
article, users will be able to view who has reacted to the messages via a
separate details tab. Individual and group chats would both be able to take
advantage of the feature. Because the feature is still in development, it is
not included in the most recent beta update.
In a different tab, the user will be able to respond to
messages using a specific emoji, according to the Whatsapp features tracker.
Users can only use one reaction per message, and each reaction can only contain
six emojis. "The capability was discovered while developing WhatsApp beta
for iOS, but WhatsApp is also working on bringing the same functionality to
WhatsApp beta for Android." "Unfortunately, there is no confirmed
release date for message reactions,"
Except for WhatsApp, all of the Meta-owned applications
include the ability to respond to messages. Users could react to photographs
and posts with emojis supplied below the Facebook post when the capability was
originally introduced to Facebook. After after, the feature was expanded to
include Messenger and Instagram. Users can use the collection of emoticons
offered to respond to messages they receive on Instagram and Messenger. When
you don't know what to say to someone, you can always utilize emojis to
communicate various emotions to let them know how you feel about the message.
