WhatsApp emoji reactions: this is how they work

WhatsApp has gained a handy function. You can now use emoji reactions, a feature you may know from other chat apps. Think for example of Telegram, Instagram or Slack. Instead of typing a message to respond to an app, you simply send an emoji. This shows that you find a message fun, funny, shocking or sad.

The emoji reactions now also work in the Netherlands and there are six in total. Not very extensive, but the most important emoji are fortunately available. You can send one emoji reaction per message and it is also possible to delete the images later. This is how to send an emoji response:

  1. Launch WhatsApp and open a conversation;
  2. Tap and hold the message you want to respond to with an emoji;
  3. You will then see the six emoji appear on the screen. Choose one by tapping on it.

You will then see a small emoji appear with the message. Good to know is that you can also remove the emoji by simply pressing the app and tapping the same image. If you want to adjust the emoji reaction, you do the same and simply choose a different icon.

The emoji reactions should ensure that WhatsApp conversations – especially group chats – are less chaotic. However, the function is also useful if you want to respond to a message, but do not have the time (or inclination) to type an entire message.
