Reacting on the messages has become quite a trend among users after the feature was launched in Instagram and Facebook Messenger. Soon the same feature will be added to WhatsApp as well, which will enable users to send reactions to messages, WABetaInfo reported.
The feature allows users to place an emoji on a message to express what they feel about it. The same feature is available on Twitter as well.
Reporting about the latest development, the online platform that tracks the updates related to WhatsApp said, “Today we can finally announce one of the first messaging features that’s coming on WhatsApp: reactions! You already know what is a reaction: it’s usually an emoji that you can place on a message to express emotions. Instagram, Twitter, iMessage already support message reactions and today we can start to discover the progress of their development”.
Users will be able to use the feature in the latest updates of their mobile app. The reports also reveal that if any user – having an outdated version of the app that does not support reactions – receives a reaction on their message, the app will notify them that they have received a reaction on their message, and they will have to update their app to see it.
The screenshot above shows what messages the users will receive if they have an outdated version of WhatsApp.
The feature is currently available in beta version, however, it is not yet known as to when the company will implement it on the stable version of the mobile app.
