Previous news? WhatsApp is making it easier to create stickers on Desktop

Two months ago, we spotted the ability to react to a WhatsApp message, a new feature under development. We explained that everyone will be able to see who reacted to a message since reactions are not anonymous: this is what we’re going to introduce in this story.
Reactions will be available in individual chat threads and group chats and everyone can see who reacted to a message simply viewing the reaction info:

As you can see in this screenshot, all reactions are listed in the first tab called “All”, then WhatsApp groups who reacted to a message using a specific emoji, in a separate tab. The user will be able to react to a specific message once and reactions are limited to 6 emojis.
The feature has been spotted during the development of WhatsApp beta for iOS, but WhatsApp is also working on bringing the same ability on WhatsApp beta for Android as well.
Message reactions are under development and there isn’t a known release date, unfortunately. We are covering all information about this feature and we will keep you updated when there is news.
