After a long time of waiting, the message reactions feature has started rolling out to WhatsApp users. The reaction feature works similarly to how Facebook and Telegram reactions work – you long-press on a WhatsApp message and select the emoji you want to react with.
In addition to reacting to messages with emojis, WhatsApp users can also share larger files now since WhatsApp has increased the file transfer size from 100MB to 2GB.
Besides, WhatsApp has doubled the maximum number of participants allowed in a group chat – from 256 to 512 people. However, WhatsApp says it is “slowly rolling out the ability” to add up to 512 people to a group, so you’ll have to wait before you can add more than 256 members to a WhatsApp group.
