Reacting to messages

In chats and channels, you can react to messages with emojis.

Only users who are logged in to Yandex can add reactions: one reaction to a message per user. Reactions are visible to everyone. You don't need to be a chat or channel member to add a reaction. Conversely, a reaction you add in a chat or channel doesn't make you a member.

Viewing reactions

Reactions are displayed under the message with the most popular ones on the left.

If you tap the image of the added reactions, you can view all the reactions and add or change your own. Emojis used by other users are marked with an icon that shows the number of reactions on a dark background. The one you selected is displayed on a light background.

When forwarding or replying to a message, reactions aren't displayed in the original quoted message.

The set of emojis available is updated from time to time. Previously added reactions aren't removed. If you want to remove your reaction with an emoji that is no longer on the list, first select a new emoji and then remove the old one.
