Message reaction is like a trend for all messengers nowadays. Various social media applications, such as Instagram, Twitter, Telegram offer this feature. iOS on the other hand provides its own message reaction feature in iMessage called Tapbacks.

iMessage Reaction is one of the notable features Apple provides to its devices. It allows users to express their sentiments for that particular message. Of course, most Android users want to have it and finally, it seems that their wishes have come true.

Back in November, we’ve been reported that Google is working on an option to properly display iMessage responses on Android devices. Now the company has begun releasing iMessage reaction for Android through a beta update.

Once your Android device received this feature, Google Messages will automatically convert Tapbacks that iPhone users send in response to SMS/MMS. You can see the response at the lower right corner of the message bubble.

Moreover, the Google Messages iMessage reaction comes with some amazing tweaks in the conversion process. For example:

  • Heart” becomes the “Smiling Face with Heart-Eyes” emoji ๐Ÿ˜
  • Haha” reaction becomes “Face with Tears of Joy” ๐Ÿ˜‚
  • Exclamation marks” becomes “Face with Open Mouth” ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
  • Question mark” becomes “Thinking Face” ๐Ÿค”

At the same time, thumbs up ๐Ÿ‘ and thumps down ๐Ÿ‘Ž remain faithful to their iMessage counterparts. It looks like Google is trying to send a different meaning by converting the symbols to face emojis. It could be because the faces come off as more playful.

Google Messages iMessage reaction: Availability

Moving on, as mentioned above, the iMessage reactions are currently released for Google Messages beta users and will soon roll out widely (via 9to5Google). Android users can manually enable this feature from the Messages overflow menu >> Settings >> Advanced.
