WhatsApp tests feature that lets you react messages with any emoji

THE Whatsapp is slowly releasing the feature that allows users to react to messages. The news was announced in January of this year, however, it seems that the company already wants to improve the tool.

According to the specialized website WABetaInfo, there is a new update (2.22.10.9) of the application by the Google Play Beta Program that releases more reactions/emojis to users.

Currently available are the plus sign, heart, crying with laughter, scared, shedding a tear and palms together. The new reaction options should be released to messenger testers soon.

More emoji reactions on WhatsApp

The new version has a “+” button that allows you to include or select any emoji available on the keyboard. In this sense, as usual, the most used emojis are likely to be among the first options.

However, it is important to note that the novelty of the Whatsapp it is not an innovation. Both Twitter and Telegram, for example, already have the functionality. However, launching the messenger will facilitate communication between users.

So far there is no set date for the + reactions feature to be launched on the platform.
