WhatsApp Web: how to use reactions in messages


It is possible to use reactions in WhatsApp conversations with the help of the WA Web Plus extension on the PC. The feature, which does not exist natively in the app, nor in the web version, is similar to reactions in Facebook posts. The tool is useful for those who want to send a quick reply in chats with friends or in groups. Reactions are received as an emoji by others in the conversation. That way, they don’t need to install the plugin for the feature to work.
