Google messages could soon support iMessage reactions, report says – CNET
Google messages could properly show emoji reactions from iPhone users soon, according to a Friday report from 9to5Google. An update was reportedly spotted in the newest beta for Google message, version 10.7, that featured a fix for emoji reactions from iMessage to Google message users.
Before the update, when an iPhone user reacted to an Android user’s text with an emoji, the reaction was sent as a separate message. Instead of showing an emoji attached to the intended message, a separate text that read “liked an image” or “emphasized” would show, for example.

Now, after the update, the emoji reactions are properly attached to the message, as seen in screenshots posted by 9to5Google. If you tap on the emoji reaction, a popup saying that it was “translated from iPhone” will reportedly appear.
9to5Google reports the feature has slowly begun rolling out to some Google message users. Google didn’t immediately respond to CNET’s request for comment.
