The messaging app was also revealed last month The WhatsApp Works on new features that are important to users.
As detailed in the platform blog, the goal this week is for organizations, businesses, and other small communities to communicate securely and get things done using WhatsApp.
With this, it is now possible to use reactions with emojis by downloading the latest version of the app. “Feedback is fun and fast and helps reduce redundant messages in groups. We will continue to improve this feature, adding more and more expressions from now on,” the app detailed.
In addition, it is now also possible to send files up to 2GB at a time in WhatsApp, protected by end-to-end encryption. This is an improvement over the previous limit, which was only 100MB.
These are the new functions released by WhatsApp for Android and iOS phones
One of the most requested features by users is adding more people to a conversation.
“This is why we are gradually rolling out the option to add up to 512 people to a group. Developing safe and private communities takes a lot of work, and we believe these improvements will help people and groups get closer and closer to each other.”
However, the change only arrives in Brazil after the elections, according to information posted by the messaging app.
