Google Meet Reactions 

 

You can now use emojis to share in-meeting reactions in Google Meet on Web, and iOS, with Android coming soon.

These reactions will show as a small icon in the sender’s video tile and floating up the left side of the screen. When there are multiple reactions, you will see a burst of emojis on the left side of your screen.

To share a reaction, select the smile icon in the control bar to get the reaction bar. You can hover on this bar to select the skin tone of your choice.
