Instagram Direct: How to Customize the Emoji Reaction Bar

Personalize your messaging experience

In September, Facebook began rolling out its integration of Messenger From Facebook features into Instagram Direct. This gives users of the photo- and video-sharing application access to new features in conversations, such as the ability to send selfie stickers.

Once you upgrade your Instagram Direct experience, you can customize your emoji reaction bar, which allows you to quickly react to messages you’ve received with an emoji of your choice.

By default, the emoji reaction bar has options like the thumbs up emoji and crying face emoji.
