WhatsApp is serious with Reactions: the beta channel is underway and more emojis for the future


WhatsApp seems particularly committed to developing the reactions as it should. Indeed, yesterday the popular messaging has released a new one update on the beta channel, the 2.22.9.4which reintroduces the feature for some users after discontinuing its deployment in late March.

To check if you have the Reactions enabled, long press on a message. At that point, one should appear bar with some emojis, for now limited to 6 (Like, Love, Laugh, Surprised, Sad and Thank you). Also by clicking on one Reaction you can see who has it sent.

Then today came the news through the WABetaInfo site that Whatsapp would be working on expand the number of Reactions available. In a future update in fact, you will be able to find a new button with the “plus” symbol in the Reactions bar (image below), which should allow you to choose a different emoji.

The function seems similar to the one currently available on Facebook Messenger and Instagram, so it may be possible to choose any emoji. As mentioned, the new button is not yet availablebut there we will update as soon as it is released.
