The feature is also available on Facebook and Instagram.

According to wabetainfo, WhatsApp is working on the ability to reply to messages in a future update. Feedback will be available below a message, you can click on one and reply to messages. The report also notes that there will be a separate information tab for users to see who has replied to messages. The feature will be available for individual chats as well as group chats. The feature is currently in development and therefore not available in the latest beta update.

The whatsapp feature tracker said that the user will be able to reply to messages with a specific emoji, in a separate tab. Users can only use one reaction for one message and reactions are limited to 6 emojis. “The feature was spotted during development of WhatsApp beta for iOS, but WhatsApp is also working on bringing the same capability to WhatsApp beta for Android as well. Feedback to Messages is in development and there is no known release date, unfortunately,” the wabetainfo report stated.

The feature to reply to messages is something that all Meta owned apps have, except WhatsApp. The feature was first introduced to Facebook, where users can reply to photos and posts using emojis provided at the bottom of a Facebook post. Then the feature was expanded to Messenger and Instagram. Users have the option to reply to messages received on Instagram as well as Messenger using the set of emojis provided. Sometimes you have nothing to say to someone, and in such scenarios, you can always use emojis expressing different emotions to let the person know how you feel about the message.
