Compared to Messenger, also owned by Meta, it took WhatsApp a very long time to implement emoji reactions,

and it's finally released this capability recently to much enjoyment from users worldwide.

There was still a problem, however - namely that you only had six options, pre-chosen for you by the WhatsApp developers.

This was undoubtedly still a step in the right direction, but many users wanted more.

And today WhatsApp delivers, as you can now react with any emoji you want.

This is obviously a very tiny addition to what is still a pretty new feature, but we're guessing a lot of you will love it.

As always with such things, the rollout might take a few days to reach all Android and iOS devices out there using WhatsApp, but rest assured that the feature is finally on its way.
