WhatsApp launches emoji reactions, 2GB file sharing

WhatsApp has introduced emoji reactions on its latest version and users can now send files up to 2GB in size at a time, an increase from the previous limit of 100MB.

“Reactions are fun, fast, and they reduce overload in groups too. We’ll continue improving them by adding an even broader range of expressions in the future.

“We recommend using WiFi for larger files and we’ll display a counter while uploading or downloading to let you know how long your transfer will take,” WhatsApp said in its blog post.

Announcing the new offering, Mark Zuckerberg, Meta Platforms CEO, said: “Reactions on WhatsApp start rolling out today. We’re including the emojis to help spread thanks and appreciation. More expressions are coming soon.”

“In 2011 we introduced Group Chats, and we haven’t stopped improving since. In the coming weeks, we’ll roll out the ability to share files up to 2GB and add more people to your groups so you can continue creating and nurturing meaningful, private connections,” Mr. Zuckerberg added.

The emojis include a red heart, a thumbs up, a laughing face, a surprised face, a high five, and a teary face. As mentioned by Zuckerberg in his announcement on Facebook, more reactions will be added to the chat app in future.

Users can use the react feature by holding or tapping on messages and then choosing an emoji.
