Google brings Facebook reaction like emoji reaction to its Messages app

Author at TechGenyz Google
Google RCS Text Messages

Google is currently working on bringing RCS chat to the masses through its stock Messages app on Android. From the pictures released, the new feature looks very similar to that of iMessage. However, Google is constantly adding new features to its messaging app so that its users get an overall better experience. The latest inclusion to the plethora of the features is emoji reactions to RC messages. Google is still testing the feature for the Messages app.

Some are saying that this new feature is similar to Facebook’s reaction emojis. However that may be, the emoji reactions are reaching Messages users slowly. For those unaware, the new feature lets the user long-press a message box to see a plethora of emojis. In this regard, the emoji reactions are very similar to the way in which Facebook or even Twitter reactions work. It will come in handy for a lot of users, and people can have fun with their conversations.

This new feature of emoji reactions was first spotted by Reddit users. However, since the news broke, it looks like only a handful of people are subjected to the new emoji reactions. In its formative phase, Google is offering seven different emoji choices available after long-pressing a single text message. Even a few beta testers for Google’s Messages app have not been given the emoji reaction feature. So the rollout that would include delivering the new feature to all of its users will be slow and gradual.

Since the feature has not reached everyone, a natural query arising out of this would definitely be, how a user who has not received the feature can view the reactions done on a text message by the other one who has received the emoji reaction. Whenever something like this occurs, the user will receive an RCS text message that would simply read *emoji* for a  certain text messages.
