How To Enable Reactions In Telegrm

Do you want to let your group members react to messages they see within your group chat? If so, you can enable emoji reactions within your conversation as an admin. We’ll show you how to do so in our quick guide below.


Reactions in Telegram can help users share their feedback and feeling without sending a message. Users can react to messages to show their approval, love, and other stuff.
