WhatsApp began rolling out emoji reactions to users last week with a new update. However, not many users received the update on either Android or iOS. This is understandable as updates with new features often see a limited rollout first just to see if users face any weird unfixed bugs. However, WhatsApp users are now seeing a wider rollout for the feature. A new update coming to both Android and iOS devices now brings the emoji reaction feature to more people.
The emoji reactions feature is already available on Facebook Messenger and Instagram. It lets users react individually to each message with an emoji. The reactions are visible on group and individual chats on iOS, Android and WhatsApp Web. The feature was first announced when WhatsApp confirmed its ‘Community’ feature, which will be rolling out later this year. Here’s how the feature looks on iOS.
