WhatsApp will add the ability to leave “reactions” to messages

The popular messenger WhatsApp will soon receive new features. It is likely that users will be able to respond to individual messages by leaving one of several types of emoji in response. Reactions will be available in both individual and group chats.

According to the portal WABetaInfo, the opportunity will appear in one of the future updates of the messenger. The feature is said to be in development and is unlikely to be available in the newest beta. Although the reactions can be seen below the message, a special pop-up window will appear in which you can see who exactly reacted and how – in this case, we are talking about group conversations.

The network informant has already shared a screenshot of the information window. It can be used to judge exactly how all users reacted, as well as who left a particular emoji. According to the portal, the user will be able to respond to each message only once, and the set is limited to six reactions.

Information about the feature came after the iOS beta release was leaked, but WhatsApp is reportedly working on an Android version as well.

The messenger is constantly evolving. Recently, users started receiving an update with the ability to create stickers in the PC versions of WhatsApp Web and WhatsApp using images from the computer’s disk. Previously, users only had the option to use third-party sticker maker apps to add stickers.
