078 - Tapbacks in Messages

Share this Tip

Sometimes a quick thumbs up or thumbs down is all we need to respond with. Messages lets you do that with tapbacks.

You’re in a conversation…

…and you wan’t to respond quickly to a message.

Double tap or tap and hold to get a context menu.

Tapbacks are the icons that appear above the message.

Tapping on an icon will tag the message you tapped on with that icon.

It’s a quick way to respond whether you’re giving your approval or letting a friend know they need to get better jokes.
