The Message Reactions feature, as mentioned earlier, has started rolling out worldwide and chances are that you will receive the feature in the coming days. To use WhatsApp Message Reactions, you can simply tap and hold on a message in a private or a group conversation and choose the preferred emoji.
Furthermore, WhatsApp has increased the file sharing limit to 2GB. This is a significant jump, as the app only allowed file sharing up to 100MB before the update. Additionally, the default size limit of group chats, which was 256 members earlier, has now been increased to 512 members.
