How To Add Emoji Reactions in Gmail
Emoji reactions have become a cherished means of expressing ourselves in messaging apps, particularly when words fail us or we’re pressed for time.
Now, Gmail is introducing this playful feature to your email inbox.
The addition of emoji reactions in Gmail enables you to effortlessly convey your sentiments.
Whether it’s expressing gratitude to your partner for the forwarded hotel reservation 🙏, indulging in nostalgia over a childhood photo shared by your sister , or casting your vote for dinner plans with friends 🍣 🌮 🥗, it’s all just a single click away.
Some emoji, like 🎉, even come with a touch of extra visual flair.
Starting this month, users with personal Gmail accounts will spot a smiling face icon below their messages on both mobile and desktop.
A simple click allows you to choose an emoji from the menu, and a tap sends it on its way.
If someone else has already responded with the ideal emoji, you can join in by clicking on that one.
For the best experience, make sure you’re using the latest version of the Gmail app on your mobile device
(available for Android and iOS). If you’re using a different email client, you’ll receive emoji reactions as separate emails.
Gmail’s new emoji reaction feature promises quicker and more imaginative responses.
Keep an eye out for emoji reactions in your inbox in the coming weeks, and stay tuned for more ways we’re streamlining your email experience, so you can focus on what truly matters. 💌🚀
