WhatsApp finally rolls emoji reactions feature for your chat messages so rather than replying, you can now react to WhatsApp messages as similarly, as you react to Facebook posts and Facebook’s Messenger messages.

The not-so-new feature is very fascinating to WhatsApp users as it was becoming a hurdle to heart a message and send a thumbs up and users have been asking for such a feature for a long time now. Finally, Meta (WhatsApp's parent company) decided to release it and capture the needs of its users.

Mark Zuckerberg (Owner of WhatsApp) officially announced the feature's availability via his Facebook page by posting “Reactions on WhatsApp start rolling out today” here’s the screenshot of his post:
