iMessage Reactions Will Show Up as Emojis on Google Messages

This new feature removes one of the many frictions of texting between iMessage and the Google Messages app


The chokehold that iMessage has on Apple users has made it harder for them to switch to Android devices.

iMessage has really handy features that outrank the Google Messages app. This difference becomes clear when testing between both especially on group chats.

Features like iMessage reactions get broken on Google Messages app as they appear as texts.

Well, this is about change.

Google Messages is testing showing iPhone reactions as emoji on its app.

This feature is now live for users on the Google Messages beta program and can be enabled by heading to Settings, scroll down to Advanced, tap and scrolling down to Show iPhone reactions as emoji and swiping on that toggle to activate this feature.

Now when you react on an iMessage text, it will show up as emoji on Google Messages app as seen below courtesy of Droid-Life.

Happy texting!!
