Android will soon start translating iMessage reactions into emoji

San Francisco. The Google Messages app on Android devices may soon start rendering iMessage responses as emoji instead of text. Instead of showing iMessage reactions as text, Google Messages may soon convert them to emoji in the latest beta update of Google Messages, according to 9to5Google.

iMessage on iOS and macOS can add users’ reactions, such as laughter, thumbs up or down, and other reactions, which appear as annotations in iMessage. While those responses can be used to respond to an AceGreen bubble message from Android users, Android doesn’t currently interpret them correctly.

Meanwhile, WhatsApp has rolled out update 2.21.24.8 for its Android users on the beta channel, which suggests that the company is working on message reaction notifications for its Android app.

WhatsApp has been developing a message reaction feature for a few months now, which is evident from its name. It lets users react to messages the same way they react to posts and comments on the Facebook app.

Earlier, WhatsApp had no plans to notify users of message responses, but the company later started developing it for the beta version of its iOS app and is now working on providing the same feature to its Android users. Still working. (IANS)
