Meta-owned messaging app WhatsApp is working on message reaction notifications, WABetaInfo, the WhatsApp news tracker has said.

The option has been introduced in the new update — 2.21.24.8 — which WhatsApp has submitted in the Google Play Beta Programme, WABetaInfo said.

Through the reaction notification, users will be able to receive alerts when someone reacts to their messages.

"Unfortunately, there isn’t a known release date but we will inform you when there is news about this feature," WABetaInfo added.
