Reacting to a video

While watching any video in Rewatch, you can hover over the video to show the controls. At the bottom-center of the video, you'll see a toolbar of emojis. Click on any of the emojis to add a reaction for whoever's presenting.

Reactions will be displayed on the video's timeline and in the transcript for all viewers to see. You can always remove your own reactions, by locating them in the transcript and clicking the remove button.

When to use an emoji reaction

Reactions represent how you feel, so use them creatively as you'd like. Here are a few suggestions for when to use which emoji:

  • โค๏ธ - Great for saying โ€œlove itโ€, expressing solidarity, or thanks

  • ๐ŸŽ‰ - Share in a celebration or express your excitement

  • ๐Ÿ‘ - Applaud someone's efforts or say "great jobโ€

  • ๐Ÿ˜† - Chuckle along with someone or add some levity

  • ๐Ÿคฏ - Share your surprise or stand in awe of someone's work

  • ๐Ÿ˜ข - Commiserate over a tough moment or loss

Receiving reactions

When someone reacts to something you're presenting in a video, it'll show up on your notifications screen. Reaction notifications don't need to be cleared or marked as done, the most recent reactions just stick around as positive vibes for you to enjoy.
