WhatsApp has been seen experimenting with a new feature that allows people to react to messages. Other platforms, such as Instagram and Messenger, have this feature. Users will simply have to press and hold the message they want to react to, then drag their finger to the proper emoji with the new feature. The reaction will appear directly beneath the sentence.
• When you send a reaction, you can select any emoji.
• Messages can have an infinite amount of reactions, but if you have more than 999 reactions, you will read "999+".
• Everyone can see who reacted to a message.
