WhatsApp now has emoji responses and lets you send large files- The new emoji reactions were already released last month announced, but have now actually been launched. This is especially useful for group conversations. Instead of everyone placing an emoji among each other and the entire conversation becomes cluttered, you can now respond directly with an emoji to a comment.
In a blog post WhatsApp has clarified the new feature. The emoji reactions are a way to make group conversations less overwhelming. The messaging service says it will continue to work on this feature, so some changes may be made. In addition to the emoji reactions, you can now also send larger files with the latest update.
WhatsApp has raised the bar for file transfers. You can now send up to 2 GB at a time, which the messaging service says is completely safe thanks to end-to-end encryption. As a result, the limit has become considerably higher, because it was 100 MB. According to the messaging service, this is especially a godsend for small businesses or schools in combination with group chats.
Soon also larger groups
Both new features are rolling out in the current new update right now. At the moment, another new feature is gradually being rolled out. Group chats can get bigger. You will soon have the option to add up to 512 people to a group.
