Gmail Emoji Reactions Are Now Available for Android; iPhone Users Must Wait
Google is aiming to enable Gmail users to reply to emails with a single emoji on iOS and Android phones.
The feature has been the subject of rumors over the past few weeks.
The function, according to Google, will let users "express yourself and quickly respond."
Emoji responses are reportedly starting to progressively trickle out on Android as of October 3.
Over the following several months, it will be accessible on iOS and the web.
