WhatsApp belatedly received the possibility of reacting to messages through emojis. This option has been available in Messenger from the same company for several years, in addition, it is still limited in the number of emojis available.

Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Meta, used Facebook to make the news that everyone was waiting for.

WhatsApp reactions can now be done with any emoji

WhatsApp received the option to react to messages on May 5th. 👍❤️😂😮😢🙏 were the emojis available to do so, which, apart from this being a late addition, when compared to what the company itself had on Messenger for years, was still very limited.

Just like in Messenger, to react, just long press on the message and choose the emoji that best represents your feeling.

Now, through his Facebook account, Mark Zuckerberg officially announces that reactions on WhatsApp will be extended to all available emojis. He even makes a point of sharing the ones he uses the most in his reactions: 🤖🍟🏄‍♂️😎💯👊.

As we had already revealed, after testing the option in the Beta version of WhatsApp, in front of the gratitude emoji, a + sign should appear where the user can click to search for their emoji, where in addition to the drawings there will be an associated search area .

In recent months, due to strong competition, WhatsApp seems to be accelerating the development and availability of new features, so don't stay so you don't miss the race of the most popular app for conversation.

One of the novelties that should soon arrive at WhatsApp for testing will be the possibility of using the service on two mobile devices, with messages completely synchronized.

This feature is still under internal development, so little information is known, but beta versions are expected to arrive shortly.
