How To React
Reacting to a text, image, or video message is simple.
Simply hover over the message with your cursor and, at the right end of the highlighted block, you will see three icons appear.
To react with an emoji, click on the leftmost icon (the emoji with a plus sign over it).
After you click on the icon, a small window will open with hundreds of different emojis.
If you are looking for a specific emoji, you can use the search bar located at the top of the new window. On the left side of the window, you will also see a list of different categories. These two options can help you find exactly the emoji you are looking for.
The process of adding reactions to private messages or server messages is identical.
Seeing Other People’s Reactions
To see your reactions, or other people’s, look at the bottom left of the message. You will be able to see every reaction response to the message, including your own.
You can also try clicking on one of the reactions under the message to quickly react with the same emoji.
