The popular messaging platform had revealed a number of new features for users back in April. The announcement also introduced the Communities feature for administrators to manage WhatsApp groups in a better way. This feature is still to be rolled out. The number of people supported for voice calls on WhatsApp was also expanded.

The new feature Reactions, being rolled out from today, was also a part of the April announcement. With this feature, users can react to specific messages with ease, without having to type in an emoji reaction in multiple steps.

With Reactions, users will now be able to choose their preferred emoji to react to a message with the single tap on the message. The feature will work on WhatsApp in the same way users enjoy it on other Meta-owned platforms Instagram and Facebook.
