Message Reaction lets you express your sentiments for a particular message through emojis. This could be a heart, a laugh, a thumbs up, a thumbs down, a question mark, or an exclamation. You can choose one of the emojis that suits your mood or reaction to the message and can use it instead of texting.
Before the change, Google Messages users receiving reactions from iOS devices would see a text description of the accompanying emoji instead of a character. For example, a heart emoji response would come as the text “[user] loved [entire text message]” on Google Messages.
Luckily, this has changed now and Google Messages users can clearly see iMessage responses on their phones. However, the feature is currently released for beta testers but it will soon expand to more users.

Are you using any Samsung foldable smartphone? If yes, then let us tell you that if you have a Flip or Fold smartphone, then you should know how to use it safely and properly. At the same time, you have to take some common precautions while using a Samsung Galaxy Z Flip or Fold smartphone so that the life of your smartphone is long.

The foldable display with its innovative design and ultra-thin glass material provides a new user experience beyond simple folding and unfolding. Through innovative OLED technology, it has been loved by countless consumers around the world.
The Korean tech giant continues to strive to improve the durability of the foldable display through continuous technological development and the application of new protective films to optimize the display panel structure and conduct various durability tests based on customer experience.
However, since the display structure is different from that of ordinary smartphones, it is sometimes necessary to consider the characteristics of foldable products when using them. When using any Samsung Galaxy Z Flip or Fold smartphone, remembers these precautions.

1.) Since the foldable display uses thin and flexible glass and film for its folding function, there will be slight bending depending on the viewing angle, and wrinkles may appear in the center of the folded part of the screen.
2.) If it is subjected to external force, black spots or bright spots or lines may appear on the screen, some or all will be black or bright, or cracks may appear inside the screen. Be careful not to apply external shock to the monitor.
- If you drop the product
- Tap the screen with various objects like pens, nails, and keys or drop objects on the screen
- If you turn on the screen by placing your finger on the center of the screen
- If you press hard on the curved part of the screen or bend the screen with any third-party objects (cards, keys, sand, metal powder, etc.),
3.) The protective glass on the main screen is a genuine folding film. If you tear off the protective film at will or apply a non-genuine film, it may damage the screen.
4.) For wireless charging, first fold the product in half, and then touch the center point on the back of the product to the center point of the wireless charger. Be sure to adjust the position to ensure a good connection. Charging may not be possible or overheating may occur if placed in a position or orientation other than the illustration.
