Google Working on Emoji Reactions for Gmail
Google is working on a new feature for Gmail that would allow users to react to messages with emoji. The feature is currently in development and is not yet available to the public.
According to hidden code in Gmail for iOS, the '“Emoji reactions” feature would work similarly to how it works in other email apps like Outlook. To react to an email with an emoji, users would most likely select the emoji reactions button on the email and then select an emoji from the menu. The emoji would then appear on the email.
There are some restrictions for when you can use Emoji reactions:
"You received this via BCC, so you can't react with an emoji."
You can’t react to encrypted messages
"You can't react with an emoji to a large group."
You can't react with an emoji more than so many unspecified times
The emoji reactions feature would be a welcome addition to Gmail. It would allow users to quickly and easily express their thoughts and feelings about messages without having to type a response. This could be especially useful for emails that are long or complex.
It is unclear when Google plans to release the emoji reactions feature for Gmail. However, given that it is currently in development, it is likely that it will be available to users in the near future.
Here are some of the benefits of emoji reactions for Gmail:
They can help to quickly and easily express thoughts and feelings.
They can help to make conversations more engaging and fun.
They can help to reduce the amount of typing that is required.
They can be used to convey a variety of emotions, from happiness to sadness to anger.
Overall, emoji reactions have the potential to make Gmail a more efficient and enjoyable way to communicate.
