WhatsApp Message Reactions Latest Feature Is Available Now


WhatsApp Message Reactions have been a long-awaited feature for the messaging app. It had recently been tested with a limited set of beta testers by the Meta-owned company.

The feature is now accessible in both regular and beta versions to all users globally. Emoji reactions have begun to go out to all WhatsApp users. 

Users can now convey their feelings in their chats. People will initially only have access to six emoji reactions: like, love, laugh, surprise, sad, & thanks.

How to use WhatsApp Reactions?

1) How to add a reaction?

To add a reaction, long press on the message you’d like to respond to. Then tap to select the emoji that appears. When you respond to someone’s message, they’ll get a notification.

2) How to delete a reaction?

You can also delete your response to a message. To do so, hold press on the particular message you responded to, then tap the emoji you responded with to remove it.

If you withdraw a reaction, the sender of that message will not be notified.

Sharing File Size Upgrade

Furthermore, you may now share files up to 2GB in size at a time using WhatsApp, with end-to-end encryption.

This is an upgrade from the previous maximum of 100MB, and it will be beneficial for small enterprises and school groups to collaborate.

For larger files, the firm recommends using WiFi, and they will show you a timer during uploading or downloading to let you estimate how long it will take.

Group Members Size Upgrade

WhatsApp also declared that the total volume of groups would be increased from 256 to 512 people.

In a blog post, WhatsApp notes that larger groups are being “gradually” rolled out, while emoji reactions and larger file size limitations are being available in the current app version.
