The new WhatsApp message reactions feature, which was announced last month by WhatsApp, will now be rolled out to its users.
This was reported by GSM Arena, it will work similar to how Facebook’s reactions work. The user needs to long-press on a WhatsApp message and select the emoji he or she wants to react with.
Right now, WhatsApp users get to choose from six emojis, as shown by Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg in his Facebook post but WhatsApp has promised to add support for more emojis and skin tones in the future.
The message reactions feature is already available for some users on the latest version of WhatsApp, but it will be about a week or two before it reaches all WhatsApp users globally.
