THE Whatsapp received a major update recently bringing a long-awaited novelty: the message reactions. Present in other messaging applications, such as Slack, the novelty is already available in the latest versions of the Meta messenger.
Currently, message reactions have six emojis that can be used in messages: ????????????. According to those responsible for the app, more options should be adopted in the future.
The stickers appear just below the messages, as long as the application is updated on the device that received and sent the chat. That is, to start using the novelty, it is crucial to verify that your WhatsApp is in the latest version for Android and iOS.
