For send a reaction in a chat we just have to press for a few seconds the message we want to react to, after which a menu of 6 emojis opens above the message. Once we select the one we want, we press it and let it send. The other person will receive notification of the reaction.

To react to a message on WhatsApp Web or Desktop, you just have to hover over the message and an emoticon will appear next to it to open the emoji menu. As on the cell phone, we only press the one we choose and the person receives the notification of the reaction.

What are the most popular emojis to update on WhatsApp

If you want to get more out of this app update, keep in mind the following tricks:

  • If you make a mistake with the emoji, you can change it after sending the reaction.
  • You can also react to your own messages.
  • In group chats, several people can react to the same message, so you can click on the reaction to see who else has sent it.
  • If several people send the same emoji as a reaction, a counter appears that can serve as a kind of quick poll.
  • You can also cancel the complete sending of a reaction, pressing the same emoji that we initially chose.
  • Notifications that warn of reactions can be disabled. This does not prevent other users from reacting to our messages, but it does notify us.
