google just announce lots of updates to your apps on Android, including the feature that will make those annoying iPhone reactions appear as emoji instead of individual messages.
For the new feature that improves messaging from iPhone to Android, Google said: “iPhone users’ reactions will now appear as emoji in text messages, just like when you’re messaging someone using an Android device.”
