What you need to know

  • Google Messages might have a new interesting feature in the rollout.
  • The messaging platform to expand emoji reactions for texts in individual chats.
  • Currently, it allows users to only react with seven emojis.

Google Messages recently got a ton of new features to enhance RCS and SMS chats. It included the ability to react to individual messages in a conversation with a set of emojis. The ability is likely to expand soon.

As spotted by 9to5Google, Google Messages is seen rolling out full emoji reactions for a set of users, which previously was limited to choosing one from a total of seven emoticons.

Since Google Messages enabled RCS, it has let users react to texts in a conversation or group. Users would select the message, and instantly a panel would pop up displaying seven emojis like Smiling-Face, and Face with Heart-Eyes, amongst others.

After the new update, the pop-up panel would showcase an emoticon with a “plus” symbol on top towards the end. 9to5 notes hitting that would open up a full emoji picker organized categorically to choose from (like any Android device would have noticed when hitting an emoji icon on their respective keyboards).
