WhatsApp Launches Reactions To Messages In Beta: WhatsApp has begun rolling out the ability to respond to messages using emoticons. According to WABetaInfo, the innovation makes its debut in version 18.104.22.168 of the messaging app, some seven months after its creation was discovered. It’s worth noting that the upgrade is only available to a select group of beta testers.
WhatsApp users may now respond to messages with six different emoticons in the latest version. They include phrases such as “weeping with joy,” “surprised,” “sad,” and “grateful” (with both hands together). To add a reaction, the user must press and hold the finger for a brief period of time, after which the emojis will appear.
Users can also verify the amount received while reacting to a message. In January, another upgrade to WhatsApp’s beta version began to display quotes to a feature that was not yet accessible in the alerts settings menu.
|Name of the feature?||Message Reactions|
|Compatibility?||WhatsApp beta for Android 22.214.171.124 is marked as compatible update.|
|I’ve installed this update but I cannot react to messages. Why?||WhatsApp is rolling out message reactions to a small amount of beta testers, so you should wait for the next beta updates to receive the feature.|
|Thanks:||kingcyrious and Baller for testing and reporting!|

Because this is an upgrade for a small set of beta testers, it’s probable that the final release is on the way, although that hasn’t been verified yet. As a result, there is no set timetable for when the novelty will be available for Android and iOS users. Moreover, the business has not stated when emojis would be available on desktop programs and the web version of the messenger.
Users have lately expressed dissatisfaction with the new online and PC version of the program, which does not require a continual connection to a smartphone. An update is intended to solve these flaws as well as enhance multi-device synchronization, message synchronization, and organization.
