Compared to Messenger, also owned by Meta, it took WhatsApp a very long time to implement emoji reactions, and it’s finally released this capability recently to much enjoyment from users worldwide. There was still a problem, however – namely that you only had six options, pre-chosen for you by the WhatsApp developers.
This was undoubtedly still a step in the right direction, but many users wanted more. And today WhatsApp delivers, as you can now react with any emoji you want.
Since you asked…
… all emoji Reactions are here! We’re feeling 🤩😎🙌🤸🎉💚 about it.

This is obviously a very tiny addition to what is still a pretty new feature, but we’re guessing a lot of you will love it. As always with such things, the rollout might take a few days to reach all Android and iOS devices out there using WhatsApp, but rest assured that the feature is finally on its way.
