Meta-owned In India, WhatsApp is one of the most frequently used and popular messaging programmes, connecting billions of people. You are able to communicate several types of media content with the use of this messaging programme, including audio, documents, videos, images, GIFs, stickers, and so on. In addition to that, it gives the user the ability to make voice and video calls. The digital payment solution that WhatsApp has been developing is now live. It has recently introduced a brand new feature that is yet another innovation. WhatsApp plans to bring out its new replies feature in the near future.

Using this reaction function, users may answer to messages with a total of six different emojis, including love, sadness, laughter, gratitude, and astonishment. It's possible that new emoticons will become available on WhatsApp in the near future. Mark Zuckerberg, the chief executive officer of the firm, was the one who broke the news on Facebook. "Starting today, reactions will begin to be sent out via WhatsApp," he added. In the post, he included the expressions of gratitude, thumbs up, heart, laughing, astonished, and melancholy.

How it works step by step process:

  1. Open WhatsApp, then open a chat

  2. Press and hold the message you want to react to

  3. The app will show six different emojis to react

  4. Drag your thump to the desired emoji and leave it

  5. Your reaction will appear on that message instantly.

In order to enable the WhatsApp respond function, users must do a long press on any chat. The user may then choose an emoji to swiftly respond with after the emojis have been displayed to them. Facebook and Instagram also have this functionality, so you may access it there as well.
