Emoji Reactions to messages

Expected behavior

When tapping a message, there is an option for reacting with an emoji (like in slack or Telegram). The emoji will then be displayed at the bottom of the message, with a count if multiple people react with the same emoji.

Additionally, a shortcut could be added for “liking” a message/expressing approval/consent really quickly: when a user double-taps a message, a reaction with a heart :heart: emoji is automatically sent.

This would be really helpful to improve communication expererience in a modern way when quickly reading through a list of new messages, for example.

Also, users could do polls using this system (e.g. with :+1: and :-1: or :one: to :keycap_ten:) really easily and while having a good overview.
