Gone are the days when you have to choose from only six emoji to respond to a WhatsApp message. Soon users will be able to react to messages using any emoji, Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced in a Facebook post on Monday. "We're rolling out the ability to use any emoji as a reaction on WhatsApp," he wrote, adding his favorite emoji — a robot, fries, a surfer, sunglasses smiley, 100, and fist bump.


So, now your international friends can know how you really feel about something without you having to use words to tell them.

Just like current emoji, you can send an emoji by long-pressing the WhatsApp message you want to react to. This opens a menu with the current six emoji and an added plus icon, which you can tap to access every emoji, including classic emoji like smiley faces and poop, along with every other available emoji.


WhatsApp also shared the news on Twitter.

The feature is currently "rolling out" to iOS and Android, which means it should become available very soon.
