Facebook has begun rolling out a new feature to its Messenger communication app which makes replying to certain texts a lot easier. Now, when you tap and hold on a message in your thread, instead of hitting one of the “reactions” Facebook provides, you can type out your own reaction/reply to that message.
Once sent, your message will quote the text you’re replying to. This will make it easier for fast-moving conversations where the subject may change frequently. It’s also good for group chats so context doesn’t get lost.
The news was originally reported by VentureBeat.
The new feature in Messenger should begin rolling out to all users in the near future.
