Chat reactions are another way for you to connect on Grindr, making sending messages more fun and interactive.
Just double-tap on any message to “like” it. A flame (🔥) icon will appear in the upper left-hand corner of the message, and voila -- you’ve liked the message. It’s that easy!
You can like your own messages too. And if both you and whomever you’re chatting like a message, you’ll see two flame icons appear (🔥🔥).
Keep in mind that if the person you’re chatting has Grindr notifications enabled, liking a message they’ve sent you will send them a notification. It’s not possible to turn off notifications for chat reactions specifically, but you won’t be notified of chat reactions if you have all of your Grindr notifications turned off. Also, liking your own message won’t notify the person you’re chatting with.
As of now, liking a message is the only way to react to it. Keep your eyes on your inbox for feature updates, including more reactions in the future!
