WhatsApp had introduced the message reactions feature back in May this year. The new feature allows users to react to messages with different emojis. However, this fun way of reacting to messages was restricted to only six emojis. As per a recent update, the messaging platform has finally started rolling out support for all emojis for message reactions. Notably, the emoji reactions feature has already been available for apps such as Messenger and Instagram.
Here’s How You Can React To WhatsApp Messages With Any Emoji
Not too long ago, WhatsApp had added the ability for its users to react to messages using emojis. However, the feature was limited to six emojis—👍, ❤️, 😂, 😮, 😢, and 🙏. While users appeared quite thrilled with the new addition to the app, they urged the app to roll out support for all emoji reactions. The Meta-owned company has finally taken the feedback into consideration and has started rolling out a new update to add support for all emojis for message reactions.

To react to messages using emojis, you will have to long-press a message to open a tray containing multiple emojis. You can simply choose any one emoji to react to a message. The app will stick the emoji to the message as your reaction.
You can check if your app has the new emoji reactions by long-pressing a message to react to it—if a new plus icon is visible within the reaction tray, that means you can already react with any emoji. iOS users can check if they have a draggable section, which allows them to select and search for any emoji. As for the final release, it might take a few days before the update makes its way to all Android and iOS devices.
