Once opened, you need to open any message and try to long-press one of messages that was present in the conversation. After long-pressing the message, a “+” sign appeared at the right corner of react button lineups.

There are two options that you may consider in customizing your react buttons: either use the “+” sign and choose your desired reaction without replacing the default react buttons, or you may modify your default react buttons by long-pressing one of default react buttons and pick your desired reaction.
