After publishing the first article about WhatsApp reactions, a lot of users have wondered how reacting works on WhatsApp, even if the feature is under development. Today we can finally show a new exclusive screenshot!
|Name of the feature?||Message Reactions|
|Availability?||WhatsApp will release the possibility to react messages in a future update.|
|I’ve installed the latest update but it cannot react messages, why?||Seen that this feature is under development, the feature is not available for the public, but you can discover a preview here.|
|Previous news?||WhatsApp Desktop beta 2.2135.1: what’s new?|
As we wrote in our previous article about message reactions, we are carefully following the development of the feature. We have shown a screenshot where people could see an informative message saying to update WhatsApp in order to see reactions.
Today we can finally show how message reactions look on WhatsApp:
As you can see, this message contains 7 reactions and, at least for now, it’s possible to react using any emoji you want. Reactions aren’t anonymous, so everyone in the conversation will be able to see who reacted to a specific message.
Even if the screenshot was taken from a version of WhatsApp for iOS, WhatsApp is working on bringing message reactions on WhatsApp beta for Android as well.
Seen that the feature is under development, things may change before the release, but this is the current situation: any emoji can be used and everyone can see who reacted.
