Users soon going to experience Whatsapp new feature “Message Reaction”


Facebook-owned Whatsapp is working towards adding new features to its platform. The next major feature that people can experience while using Whatsapp is the message reaction. According to the reports by WaBetaInfo, a new reaction info table that was spotted during the development of Whatsapp beta for iOS will allow the users to react to the messages sent from their buddies and will also make them aware of who reacted to the message that they shared. The feature is going to work similarly to the one available on Instagram DMs.

“The feature has been spotted during the development of Whatsapp beta for iOS, but WhatsApp is also working on bringing the ability on Whatsapp beta for Android as well,” the report says.

On Instagram to send a message all you have to do is long-press on the message and then choose any of your favourite emojis that you want the user to see. There is a possibility that Whatsapp is expected to work in the same way. It is yet to be known that the choices of emojis that Facebook and Instagram use will also be applied to Whatsapp or there will be some different sets of emojis prepared for the platform. 

The messaging app will alert the users to use an updated version of Whatsapp in case they are using the old version where they will not be able to experience the message reaction feature. The user will have to use the updated version of Whatsapp to enjoy the new features that the platform offers. 

The feature will be first available on the android version and afterward will be made available to iOS users. The cited source has informed that the new feature i.e message reaction is still in progress and will be made available in a future update.
