    I checked with the other end at the iPhone today, and they got a complete new text message (not back where the original message was) with the emoji reaction I sent and with also a: "...to: xyz" indication. The iPhone user basically now has it worse than I do in terms of richness for the reaction emojis to be displayed under/on/with actual respective earlier messages. Regardless, still overall a massive step forward for richer (emoji/reaction based) SMS interoperability, in my opinion.
    Not that I wish a less than ideal experience on those who choose to use iOS devises, but I do find confess to finding some guilty pleasure in that, given how long I had to deal with XXXX reacted 'Like' to "-------------------------" fully quoting the entire body of the text to which iOS users had reacted

    I can confirm that is how iPhone users see a reaction from my P7 (this feature started working for me a few days ago). One iPhone user thought I was manually typing in that response, lol.

    I used to manually type in those irritating responses to an ex-family member by marriage that was allowed to stay on the family thread.

    They are an iPhone user who liked & loved everything. [Gag] So I typed out those long annoying responses to everything they texted. Eventually, that individual stopped the reactions on their end, so I stopped my manually typed ones. I doubt if they ever totally understood what was going on.

    It's not going to take Apple long to figure out how to "fix" how their phones process those incoming reaction SMS messages from the Google Messages App. In fact, I won't be surprised if a bit of a developer war brews up for a bit. Just think of how easy it would be for Apple to format their "reaction messages" in a slightly different way, a way that will at least temporarily break how Google is successfully parsing meaning from what iOS Phones are sending. Google could then do the same the other direction. Hopefully, the war won't happen but instead some stable richness interoperability will result. Samsung needs to also follow with their Samsung Messages App.

    I can still only react with the seven preset emojis. Does anyone have the feature that enables reacting with any available emoji? If so, are you on either the beta OS or beta Messages app, or both?

    Yes, at the end of preset emoji there is a button that takes you to a full list of emojis.

    Pixel 7 Pro here, OS & all apps updated, but I'm not seeing any other button - this is what I get after long pressing on a text to which I want to add a reaction:

    I'm not sure that's the same as what's being discussed.

    But yeah, not for msg reactions.

    IIRC you're on the beta release. Tempted to go there, as well.

    I still don't have all emojis either. Just the original seven.
