To get started, open the Google Messages app and click on the three dots in the bottom right-hand corner. From there, click on “Settings” and then “Chat Features”. If the option is available, toggle “Enable Chat Features” on. Once this feature is enabled, you can start reacting to messages.

To react to a message, hold down on the message you want to react to and select the reaction you want to use. The “like” button is the most common reaction, but there are other options available as well.

While Google Messages is currently the only app that allows for message reactions, other messaging apps may offer this feature in the future.
