Google Docs is getting support for emoji reactions: How to use it


Google recently introduced emoji reactions in Google Meet. The new feature enables Google Meet users to use emojis like heart, laugh out loud and thumbs up to give their feedback to other participants in a meeting. As per a description shared by Google at the time, these emoji can be accessed using the clock icon that appears right next to the screen sharing button in the meeting controls. Now, Google is bringing the same feature to Google Docs.

The company says the new emoji reaction feature provides a less formal alternative to comments to express an opinion about content in a document. The newly announced feature will have the latest emojis that accurately reflect the identities of the users. Google has also added new emoji skin tones and gender preferences to the mix.

As far as usage is concerned, this feature is being made available to all Google Workspace customers, older G Suite Basic and Business customers, and users with personal Google accounts. Simply put, it will be available to all Google Docs users in the coming 15 days.
