Google Messages beta code hints at future support for iMessage reactionsNovember 19, 2021
A new update to Google Messages hints at a new feature designed to better handle iMessage reaction messages.
Most iPhone users have run across Apple’s reaction feature within the Messages app. By tapping and holding a message, a user can “react,” placing a heart, thumbs up, thumbs down, laughter, exclamation point, or question mark on the message. If the recipient has an iPhone, they’ll see the reaction as intended.This isn’t the case, however, if the recipient happens to be on an Android phone. Instead of a reaction, Android users will see something similar to “[User] loved [entire text message].”
