WhatsApp is making it easier for large businesses to use the service. The business stated on Thursday that groups will grow from 256 to 512 individuals, twice their previous size. WhatsApp is growing more like Telegram, which is in front with the capacity to create “supergroup”. These groups can have up to 1,00,000 members. Don’t worry if you don’t have the function yet; WhatsApp claims it’s being gently rolled out.

Another new feature is the ability to share files up to 2GB in size, a significant increase over the previous restriction of 100MB. WhatsApp claims that the files are safe by end-to-end encryption and recommends that you share huge files over Wi-Fi, albeit uploads and downloads of such files will display a counter indicating how much longer you’ll have to wait. End-to-end encryption will safeguard these file transfers. This increased restriction, according to WhatsApp, “will be beneficial for collaboration among small enterprises and school groups.”

WhatsApp unveiled Communities last month, which is a new method to broaden group chats by tying Groups together into a Community (yeah, just like Slack). The company claims that the response to the unveiling of Communities has been overwhelmingly favourable, and that many additional features are on the way.
