WhatsApp users will be able to react to messages using a heart emoji or a fire emoji

WhatsApp has recently been working on a slew of new features. The messaging app was seen developing a new feature that would allow users to respond to messages with emojis. iMessage users are aware of the reaction to the message feature. This feature was spotted being tested by WhatsApp a few months ago. When the feature is available, WhatsApp users will be able to respond to messages with a heart or a fire emoji. On Facebook and Instagram, the feature is also available.

According to wabetainfo, WhatsApp is working on the ability to respond to messages in a future update. The reactions will appear below each message; tap on one of them to respond to the messages. There will also be a separate info tab where users can see who has reacted to the messages. The feature would be available for both individual and group chats. It is not included in the most recent beta update because the feature is still in development.

WhatsApp features tracker reveals the user will be able to respond to messages in a separate tab by using a specific emoji. Users can only use one reaction per message, and each reaction can only contain six emojis. “The feature was found while developing WhatsApp beta for iOS, but WhatsApp is also working on bringing the same capability to WhatsApp beta for Android.” Message reactions are being developed, but there is no set release date,” according to a wabetainfo report.

Except for WhatsApp, all of the Meta-owned apps have the ability to react to messages. Users could react to pictures and posts using emojis provided below the Facebook post when the feature was first introduced on Facebook. The feature was later extended to Facebook Messenger and Instagram. Users can use the set of emojis provided to reply to comments received on Instagram and Messenger. When you have nothing to say to someone, you can always use the emojis expressing various emotions to let them know how you feel about the message.
