WhatsApp last details in the development of a successful function in social networks, such as Facebook or Instagram, which will allow users who can react to messages via emojis.
Multiple messaging platforms already allow this option, such as Messenger, Slack or Instagram. WABetaInfo You have had access to the first versions of this new WhatsApp feature.
The first to spread this feature, as usual, was the WABetainfo site specialized in filtering the news that users will later see reflected in the messaging service.
According to the published images we can see how the reactions will be seen within a conversation. Basically a bubble will appear under each message with the emojis that you have previously chosen.
WABetainfo published the leaks of the next reactions that will reach the messaging app.
If WhatsApp follows the same method as Instagram, to react to messages you will have to press and hold the message for a few seconds and then choose any emoji from the list of those available.
WABetaInfo also details that you can react with any of the available emojis, both on iPhone and Android, in private and group conversations.
In this sense, it is important to know that reactions to messages are not anonymous, so in a group chat, people will know who reacted and with what emoji.
So far, WhatsApp did not give clues about when the reactions with emojis will be available for all users of mobile devices. The safest thing is that it will first be launched in the Beta version of the instant messaging application for those users registered in the application’s test program.

The 37 new emojis approved by Unicode.
