WhatsApp is also bringing out the ability to share media files up to 2GB in size that are ‘protected’ by end-to-end encryption.
Following the introduction of the’reaction’ option for users, the WhatsApp messaging programme is now introducing another important feature: the ability to add up to 512 individuals to groups. However, the function has only been made accessible to a limited number of people and is not yet available to everyone.
WhatsApp is also bringing out the ability to share media files up to 2GB in size that are ‘protected’ by end-to-end encryption. The Facebook-backed network has already tested the new restriction in Argentina, and the business is now ready to make it available to everyone.
“You may now communicate files up to 2GB in size within WhatsApp while being protected by end-to-end encryption. This is an increase from the previous limit of 100MB, which we believe would be beneficial for collaboration between small enterprises and school groups “According to a blog post by WhatsApp.
While uploading or downloading, the messaging app will display a counter to let you know how long your transfer will take.
Meanwhile, WhatsApp brought out the ‘Reaction feature’ for all users on Friday, making it easier for users to send emoticons to single messages. Previously, a user had to input an emoji to respond to a message. However, starting today, it will be done instantaneously by just touching and holding the message to which you wish to respond.
WhatsApp’s response feature will function similarly to Instagram and Facebook Messenger.
How to Send Message Reactions on WhatsApp
Emoji may be used to respond to messages in both individual and group conversations. By tapping the responses emoji underneath the message, you may see all of the reactions to that message.
Each communication can only have one reaction added by the user. Reactions to fading messages will vanish when the message itself vanishes.
