These are the new reactions to messages that WhatsApp is about to launch

Whatsapp He has been working on the reactions, a function already incorporated by other social networks like Instagram, Facebook or Messenger. With them, we will have up to six different emojis to react to a specific message.

Last October, the specialized portal WABetaInfo already reported the next arrival of these emoticons, noting that the possible reactions would be a heart, a laugh, an angry face, a smile, a ‘Like’ or a ‘I don’t like’, options that are already available in a similar way in similar social networks.

But it is now that WABetaInfo announces the imminent arrival of this improvement in its “next WhatsApp beta updates for Android and iOS”. And he adds that WhatsApp reactions will arrive with end-to-end encryption. Therefore, they will be protected in the same way as messages.

The reactions are heart thumb up (‘ok’ signal), the face crying with laughter, the astonished face, the crying face and praying hands.

These reactions will appear when we click on a received message to which we want to react. But the operation will be different from that of the response function and pressing just once will be enough for the sender to know, through a reaction, that his message has been read.

With the new update it will be possible to record an audio, pause it and continue it later. A button will be created to stop the audio and another to resume the recording. The action can be done as many times as necessary.
