WhatsApp may soon add this new message reactions feature

WhatsApp recently introduced message reactions to the platform. The feature works quite similar to the emoji reactions available on Instagram and Facebook Messenger. The feature allows users to react to messages. Users just have to tap and hold a message that they want to react to and then drag their finger to the appropriate emoji. The reaction appears below the text and is visible to all members in the group. Now the Facebook owned platform is reportedly planning to improve the feature with more functionalities. As per a report by WABetaInfo, the company is working on a feature that will allow you to view detailed reaction info for automatic albums that are created when you share several media files at once.
Currently when someone reacts to a photo or video that is part of an automatic album, the app does not show which media file has been reacted to without opening the album. The feature under development will help users see the reaction on media without opening the album.
As per the screenshot shared in the report, the new feature will allow you to view detailed reaction info by showing a media thumbnail next to the reaction. WhatsApp has not officially revealed any detail about this new feature, however the report suggests that we may be able to see it in the upcoming beta updates.
A previous report by WABetaInfo suggests that WhatsApp is also planning to add a ‘+’ button in the message reactions emoji bar that will allow users to choose the emoji of their choice. Till now, only 6 emojis are available for the message reaction feature – Like, Love, Laugh, Surprised, Sad, and Thanks.
It appears that WhatsApp is adopting the message reactions feature from Instagram. The feature works in a similar way on the photo-sharing platform and it also allows you to pick different emojis to react.
