Emoji Reactions

Emoji Reactions will soon be available on WhatsApp. The WhatsApp reaction feature is comparable to the Instagram Direct Messages reaction feature. You must long press a message on WhatsApp to respond to it.

File Size Limit

WhatsApp users will soon be able to share large files with their friends and family. Users will soon be able to transfer files up to 2GB in size via the messaging app.

Group Size

Whatsapp is also progressively increasing the group size limit from 256 to 512 members.


Whatsapp has been experimenting with group polls. Users will be able to rapidly create polls within the group with this capability. This is expected to lower the number of texts that people react to now.


People will be able to gather together in different groups under one tent with a structure that works for them using WhatsApp Communities.
