Google’s Messages App Starts Testing Emoji Reactions in RCS Chats

Google Messages App Clocks 1 Billion Installs on the Play Store
Of latest, Google has been working to streamline its messaging stack and produce RCS chat to the plenty through its inventory Messages app on Android. It’s not near iMessage simply but however the firm is regularly including new options to spice up the expertise. Emoji reactions to RCS messages is the newest characteristic below testing within the Messages app.

Emoji reactions have been beforehand uncovered to be within the works by 9to5Google. But, the characteristic has now began exhibiting up for customers. This characteristic, for these unaware, enables you to long-press on a message to see a bunch of emojis (just like these seen on Facebook or Twitter) pop-up in your display. You can reply to messages with emoji reactions to save lots of your self from a prolonged dialog. That’s a method to make use of them.

The emoji reactions characteristic was first noticed by customers over on Reddit. But at the moment, it looks as if the check is pretty restricted and only some customers are seeing the seven totally different emoji decisions (proven within the picture above) accessible on long-pressing a message. The characteristic isn’t accessible for me, even within the beta construct of Google’s Messages app.

Now, you should be questioning – what’s going to occur if one consumer has acquired the reactions characteristic and the opposite hasn’t? Well, as reviews level out, the consumer who doesn’t have the brand new emoji reactions characteristic will obtain reactions through an RCS textual content message saying — *emoji* to *sure textual content message* to, let’s say, inform you that your pal laughed at your message. It seems to be tremendous complicated at first, I do know, and it may really feel the identical for a lot of RCS customers.
