Over the years getting IU updates for my S21Ultra but it seems like all the other phones -even older ones- are able to 'react' to received text messages (e.g. thumbs up, heart, etc) yet time and time again all updates don't "update" this function on the S21Ultra?! What gives?! I don't need more options to edit a photo or video, and don't care for Bixby. Give me the simple and convenient joy of acknowledging someone's text without having to send an actual text to them. 

Anyone know how to get this update?

I highly doubt reactions are going to come to Samsung Messages in the future, it looks like they are moving to using Google Messages on the devices now since it comes pre installed.
