The reactions they are a quick and convenient way to express your position on content, be it a post on social media or a message in a chat, and Telegram is also working to implement them.
Telegram: reactions to messages appear
Telegram it’s a kind of small world of its own and is probably already the most feature-rich instant messaging service right now (just a few days ago we told you about a small new addition against spoilers).
The novelty that has just emerged is not exactly revolutionary, but it will meet the appreciation of many users: Telegram is working to introduce the reactions to messages. Already seen on social networks like Facebook, on chat services like Messenger and more recently on instant messaging like WhatsApp, the reactions were spotted in a screen recording of the version beta of Telegram for iOS.
The following video was shared on Reddit and shows the ability to choose your reaction from a predefined selection of 11 emojis (with dedicated animation), including thumbs up, thumbs down, heart, laughter, crying and more. The reactions are promised to be a very useful and exploitable function in the channels and in the Telegram groups, where it is possible to see the authors of each reaction and, above all, the administrators can decide if necessary to disable them completely or to make only some of them usable.
How to update Telegram for Android
As explained in the previous paragraph, at this moment the reactions to the messages have been found only in the beta of Telegram for iOS, still nothing to do for the Android counterpart. While waiting for the news to also appear in the app for the robot, you can download the latest version from the Google Play Store by clicking on the badge below.
