Google back in May this year had released support for iMessages-like emoji reactions in its Messages app. At the time, the company hadn't released this feature on the web. Now, Google is changing this status quo by bringing this feature to Messages' web-based platform.

As per a report by 9To5 Google, Google has started rolling out support for emoji reactions in Google Messages web app. Notably, this feature is the same as the one available in Google Messages' mobile app.
