Yandex started testing the opportunity to rate emotions in the Yandex.News aggregator, the company said . While the function is available only to a limited number of users.

We conduct a lot of experiments aimed at interacting with users and receiving feedback in a different form. Likes – one of them.

At the moment, this feature has appeared in a small percentage of registered users. In the near future, we will evaluate the results of the experiment and, if it proves successful, we will include likes for everyone.
