The Facebook-owned social media giant has been working on introducing pop-up emojis since October last year. The feature would be launched for general users very soon.
The Reverse Engineer Manchun Wong mentioned that the photo-sharing application is working on this matter for some time.
According to her claim, the news was given confirmation by the Tech Communication Manager of Facebook, Alexa Voice. The manager said that the non-employed users of Instagram could only use the heart emoji but soon the other emojis would also be launched.
He further added that although indeed, Instagram has recently begun the testing of the DM reactions internally with the employees, the app has been working on it since the month of October 2019 a week after a tweet was posted about the DM reactions.
Wong had previously been able to perform reverse engineering on the latest update on Twitter which included the new features before it was launched for the public at large.
At the moment, Instagram has not given the exact timeline as to when this new feature would be launched. The 6 emoji bar would be a fun addition to the other Instagram features.
