The reactions to the messages soon on Telegram
Today, thanks to a leak published by @wabetainfo, we find that the application of Pavel Durov would be ready to launch a new feature: the reactions to messages. These, quite similar to those available for example within private messages on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and even iMessage, should allow users to quickly express a mood simply by holding down on a message received.
To date, we know that the reactions to the messages will refer to at least these icons, even if we believe that the Telegram development team will add further variations as the work progresses. As can be seen from the image, the reactions to the messages will exploit some heart-shaped icons evidently thought to express empathy to the text of a received message.
According to @wabetainfo, reactions to messages will soon be released in the form of a server-side update, therefore without the need to download a new app update. It is not even clear if they will arrive first on Android, iOS and both, but we hope to find out more of them over the next few days.
