WhatsApp (WA) has finally rolled out the Reactions feature to users. This feature can be used to respond to chats from other users by using the available emoji. There are six emojis that users can use to respond to a chat which consists of thumbs, hearts, laughing, sad, surprised emojis to the two-handed emoji symbol of gratitude.
The Reactions feature can already be tried by WhatsApp users in Indonesia. This feature is present in WhatsApp version 184.108.40.206 for the Android version. How to use the WhatsApp Reactions feature How to use the WhatsApp Reactions feature is fairly easy, as easy as using the WhatsApp message reply feature.

- Select a message that you want to give Reactions to, then press and hold on the message until a pop-up appears showing six emojis
- Choose one of the available Reactions emoji
- Next, the Reactions emoji you selected will appear below the related message/chat

Slide the toggle (the button on the right) right (turns green) to enable Reaction notifications to appear on the screen, or swipe left (turns gray) to turn off Reaction notifications.
