Today I replied to an email with a thumbs up emoji. I just wanted to tell the sender that I got his message.
I am sure this use case happens multiple times a day. I want to tell someone that I noted their message (or love it, hate it…etc).
It would be cool if Gmail supports reacting to emails. Almost 100% of my daily emails come from coworkers who are also on Google suite.
The biggest challenge for this feature is 3rd party mail clients. Google can’t support this feature on there.
But they can at least add one click reaction icons. When the user clicks one of them like a thumbs up, it replies to the sender with an email with a thumbs up inside. Single click, works everywhere.
