WhatsApp might soon let users react to messages in chat with emojis: Report

WhatsApp is reportedly planning to roll out a new feature that will allow users to react to messages in chat, just like Instagram, LinkedIn, Facebook and more. Going by a report by WABetaInfo, the reaction emojis will be placed just below the text. It is expected to be available for both individual and group chats. The report further suggests users in the conversation will be able to see who reacted to the texts.

The screenshot shared in the report reveals that the users will get 7 emojis to choose from. However, the feature is still under development, so there are chances that the final feature may have more emoji options. The report hints that this feature is likely to roll out for both Android and iOS users. There is still no news as to when will the company release it for its users.
