Reactions and appreciations offer you an easy way to provide feedback to claap videos shared with you, without the need to write a comment or record a video reply.


Reactions allow you to quickly react to a moment in a video without pausing it or typing anything. It's the simplest way to leave feedback, since all emoji reactions will appear on the video's timeline as you leave them.

To leave a reaction:

  • Hover the claap video while it's playing

  • The player menu will appear at the bottom of the video

  • Choose one of the available emojis

You can also use keyboard shortcuts:

Press 1 β†’ πŸ‘

Press 2 β†’ πŸ‘

Press 3 β†’ πŸ™

Press 4 β†’ 😍

Press 5 β†’ πŸ‘€

To delete a reaction, hover over a reaction that you previously added and click on the cross.


Appreciations are predefined, animated replies that you can leave at the end of a claap video. Use appreciations to check out the video and congratulate, validate or thank the author. Asynchronous communication doesn’t prevent kindness and clarity!

To leave an appreciation:

  1. Navigate to the end of the video.

  2. Click on one of the available appreciations.

  3. The appreciation is added as a new thread in the comment bar.

Changed your mind? Not a problem. Appreciations can be deleted just like any other comment.
