Facebook introduces Reactions in Messenger App

Suppose you are chatting with your friend and you want to react to a joke or a comment written by your friend. Previously you expressed your emotions by inserting meaningful stickers or emoticons. But now you can directly react to a chat line. The process is very simple. Whenever your friend types a message and you receive it, the message will be accompanied by a face icon. Tap on the icon and a menu will appear that will show seven reactions.

The reactions are love, laugh, surprise, cry, anger, like and dislike. Unlike the comment Reactions, the dislike button has made its way to the Messenger Reactions list. Since chats are mostly one to one correspondence, hence a dislike button will not be of much harm. The new feature has been added to the desktop version, the Android App and iOS. The new version of Messenger will automatically include the feature to your mobile or computer. The Reaction feature is small, handy and fun to use.

You can also use the new feature if you hve the latest version of the app installed in your computer.
