Following Photomoji, animated emojis, and some screen effects, Google Messages for Android is now offering wide-ranging interactive effects.

When you long-press on a message, whether it’s SMS or RCS, and choose an emoji, you’ll immediately see visual effects around the message bubble. Google says this is designed to add a dynamic touch to your conversations.

In recent weeks, the Interactions feature has exited the beta version and is now available in the stable release of Google Messages.

Some users have complained about the lack of a specific way to disable these reactions. While they only last for a few seconds, it’s a valid concern, and having high-level control over expressive features in Google Messages would be a good idea.

This adds to the extensive availability of animated emojis, while the widespread rollout of Photomoji began in late January.
