What you need to know

  • WhatsApp has begun rolling out emoji reactions for everyone.
  • The messaging app’s bigger size limit for file sharing is now available to all users.
  • Users are also starting to gain the ability to add up to 512 people to a group.

After a few weeks of beta testing, WhatsApp’s message reactions have begun to appear for a broader set of users on the stable channel, though the emoji selection is currently limited to six.

The new emoji reactions are rolling out on Android and iOS devices, Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg confirmed in a Facebook post. However, because it is a phased rollout, the new feature may not be available to everyone all at once.
