Reacting to Messages on Instagram

When you want to react to a message, Instagram makes it a breeze from your phone or computer. Reaction emojis quickly let the sender know you saw a message without you typing a response. It’s beneficial if you receive several messages on the platform each day.

It’s also worth noting that the desktop version of Instagram doesn’t include the ability to customize or change your quick reaction emoji. So, when you double-click a message, it defaults to the heart emoji.
