Earlier this year, WhatsApp rolled out an excellent new feature to its mobile app called ‘Message Reaction’. The Message reaction for WhatsApp is now available for Android and iOS users and is very similar to the one seen on the Messenger app.

If you don’t know, the Message reaction allows you to react to specific messages with different emojis. When the feature first rolled out to Android users, it had offered only 6 emojis for reaction.

However, a few months ago, the feature received an upgrade, and now it allows you to use any emoji as a message reaction on WhatsApp. Many users have already praised the message reaction feature, which has also arrived on the desktop version of WhatsApp.

So, if you are using WhatsApp on the desktop to communicate with your friends, you can now use the Message Reaction feature without installing any add-on. However, you need to use the WhatsApp desktop app to react to messages with any emoji. The feature is not rolled out to the web version yet.

So, if you are a WhatsApp desktop user looking for ways to use the message reaction, you may find this guide helpful. Below, we have shared a step-by-step guide on how to react to WhatsApp messages with any emoji.
