What are Reaction Roles on Discord servers? 

While using Discord Bot, the user can assign roles to themselves simply by proving reactions in form of emojis to a message. You can select roles for all kinds of tasks like changing fonts, approving certain permissions, selecting a particular color to usernames, etc. The task of assigning roles to a discord server gets easier only when you can access an efficient bot such as the Carl bot. 

To a discourse server, when a member joins, then by default he is assigned the everyone role. And in this context, the primary importance of the reactive role feature is to target a specific group of users while communicating. For instance, while communicating for an encrypted chat server, you can create two roles- Whatsapp and Telegram. And now every member entering the server has to choose a role based on their preference.
