I was testing out SharePoint 2016 on Azure. I had heard that SharePoint 2016 is going to be responsive. Can someone please tell me how to activate the responsive features on SharePoint 2016? I have been testing it; however, responsive does not seem to work.

    Where did you get that from? The part of it being responsive? I can imagine the nextgen portals might be, but the normal UI probably won't be unless they did some major refactoring outside of Office 365, highly unlikely.

The responsive features can be enabled using the SharePoint.UI.Responsive package on GitHub. The responsive UI can be deployed to both SharePoint 2013 and 2016 farms. You can see the official announcement here.

Excerpt from the blog:

We are excited to announce availability of open source Responsive UI Package for SharePoint on-premises. This package is designed to transform your SharePoint on-premises deployment responsive where needed and it supports both SharePoint 2013 and SharePoint 2016 version.

Package is available from GitHub and it changes the native behavior of your SharePoint deployment by adding support for three different rendering options depending on the device screen size. You can deploy the package to any on-premises SharePoint site by simply using the provided PowerShell scripts. User interface changes are automatically applied based on the device screen size accessing the SharePoint site.
