For the unaware, this feature is similar to that of other apps, including Instagram, Messenger, Telegram, or iMessage. All you have to do is hold on to a message and choose an emoji as a reaction. As per the report, the ability to react to messages is limited to selected beta testers. Although WhatsApp has not officially confirmed when all users will get the feature, it will roll out to everyone soon.
According to WABetaInfo, the emoji reactions feature is rolling out for the users on WhatsApp Beta for Android 188.8.131.52. Initially, there are six emojis to choose or react from. This includes Like, Love, Laugh, Surprised, Sad, and Thanks (👍💖😂😮😢🙏).
The company could potentially add more emoji options in future developments. Also, for now, there is no word if the user can change or customize these reactions. On the bright side, WABetaInfo mentioned that all users will be able to see message reactions, even if they can’t send them.
Assuming this is a server-side rollout, it’ll be available for the latest beta version users. However, as mentioned, there’s no guarantee for everyone. The company will hopefully make it functional for general users in the coming months.
