Google Allo has received minor updates here and there that have slowly been turning it into the messaging app.
Version 14 has been released, you can now react to individual messages throughout your conversations.
A heart icon will now be displayed below each message that you receive, and if you want to react to it, all you need to do is tap said icon. If you’re in a group chat, a number will be displayed next to the heart icon to show how many people have reacted to a specific message.
If this feature sounds normal to you, that’s because it is not new in the world of messaging apps. Facebook Messenger has already done this, users can react to messages in a number of different ways, and even the latest Skype update also brought this functionality.
