Android may soon translate iMessage reactions into emoji – San Francisco News
According to 9to5Google, within the newest beta replace to Google Messages found that as an alternative of displaying iMessage reactions as texts, Google Messages may soon change them into emojis.
iMessage customers on iOS and macOS can add reactions, similar to amusing, thumbs up or down and different reactions, which present up as an annotation in an iMessage. While these reactions can be utilized to react to a acegreen bubble” message from an Android user, but Android doesn’t currently interpret them correctly.
While a thumbs-up reaction on an iPhone shows properly on another iPhone user’s device. However, on an Android device, the reaction will be displayed as text, then show the text of the message.
Another feature spotted in the teardown is the ability to set birthday reminders in Messages. This means the recipient’s birthday will show up in the conversation list.
Meanwhile, WhatsApp has released the 188.8.131.52 update for its Android users on the beta channel, which reveals the company is working on message reaction notifications for its Android app.
WhatsApp has been developing the message reactions feature for a few months now, which, as evident from its name, lets users react to messages the same way they react to the posts and comments on the Facebook app.
Previously, WhatsApp had no plans to notify users of message reactions, but the company later began developing it for the beta version of its iOS app and now it is also working on providing the same feature to its Android users.
