In a bid to satisfy and stay up-to-date to it fast spreading customers, WhatsApp has improved two major features including group and file size features.

WhatsApp Increases Group Size to 512 People, File Size to 2GB

WhatsApp while announcing the latest development, says the feature is being “slowly rolled out, so don’t worry if you don’t have it yet”.

With the new feature, the users of the social media APP can now share files up to 2GB in size, which is a massive improvement from the previous limit of 100MB.


WhatsApp says the files are protected by end-to-end encryption, and suggests you use Wi-Fi for sharing particularly large files, though uploads and downloads of such files will show a counter that will tell you how much longer you’ll have to wait.

Finally, the company says that emoji reactions to messages, which were announced in March, have gone live with the latest version of the WhatsApp app. WhatsApp says it will continue to improve on this feature by adding a broader range of reactions in the future.

It would be recalled that last month, WhatsApp announced Communities, which are another way to expand group chats by knitting Groups together into a Community.

The company says the feedback it received from the announcement of Communities has been very positive, and that many new features are coming as users journey through the year.
