Good news for WhatsApp users: a new update not only allows sending larger files, but also larger group chats and direct emoji reactions to messages.
Long-awaited change coming soon for all users
It has long been planned that a popular feature that users already know from Facebook should also come to WhatsApp: direct reaction to messages using emoji. RTL reported. And as WhatsApp announced yesterday in a WhatsApp blog post, the time has finally come: “We are pleased to announce that emoji reactions are available in the latest version of the app.”
Currently, work is being done to distribute the function to all users, according to “Chip”. If the feature isn’t available to you yet, you still need to be patient, he says. Cause: It is common for such updates to be distributed to users in batches.

Bigger files and even bigger group chats
In addition to emoji reactions, WhatsApp operators have also responded to other requests from users. The new Messenger update should also allow you to send files up to 2 gigabytes, of course with end-to-end encryption, as the post says. “This is particularly useful for working together in small businesses and school groups,” the WhatsApp blog post says.
But not only files can now be more extensive, group chats can also be much larger in the future: up to 512 WhatsApp users should be able to interact in a group. With these changes, the goal is to help individuals and groups stay in close contact with one another. (vho)
