As we have seen in recent weeks, WhatsApp is increasing the functions that we can use in WhatsApp Web, the browser version of the popular instant messaging app. The reactions to WhatsApp messages are closer than ever and now we can activate them on WhatsApp Web, you we will tell how to do it.

Some time ago we talked about the possible arrival of reactions to WhatsApp, that is, in addition to being able to reply to a message we can react with an emoji to said message, well, now we can try it on WhatsApp Web thanks to WA Web Plus in Chrome, a free extension that expands the functions of WhatsApp Web.



Le reactions that we can activate through this extension are the same that we have on Facebook, but in this case the reaction will make it seem as if we have replied to said message with a WhatsApp emoticon when we click on the emoji we want.

The extension we are referring to is WA Web Plus for WhatsApp Web, is an extension that we can install in Chrome completely free and which adds many new options to WhatsApp Web, which of course we would like to see included in the final version of WhatsApp.

Follow these steps to be able to activate and test message reactions from WhatsApp Web:

  1. The first of all will be to access the website of the extension to be able to install it.
