What are microinteractions?
Microinteractions refer to a product experience or interaction that has a single purpose: providing context signals for the user to convey status or help prevent errors. Microinteractions typically have four components: triggers, rules, feedback, and modes.

They can help give your customers information they need, provide relevant feedback to avoid continuous errors, and can even attract users' attention when needed.
