WhatsApp Group Chat Can Now Reportedly Have Upto 512 Members
According to reports, Meta-owned social messaging company WhatsApp has begun rolling out a feature that allows users to join up to 512 participants to a group chat. According to a recent WABInfo article, the feature will be available to all users of WhatsApp’s most recent stable version.
The function has been broadly out, however some users may have to wait another 24 hours before they can see it on their App. Meta introduced the functionality in early May.
The App is also extending the file size limit for sharing files from 100MB to up to 2GB. The Meta-owned app has also just incorporated emoji reactions to allow people swiftly communicate their feelings and emotions about specific messages they receive from individuals and in group chats without having to send text responses.
According to reports, app is also testing a new undo option for deleted messages. This new feature is intending to be handy when users mistakenly pick Delete for Me instead of Delete for Everyone. According to reports, the feature is still under development and is not yet available to Android beta users.
The App is also providing the ability to alter messages after they are sent. The functionality would allow users to correct mistakes in their messages, such as typos, without fully wiping them from the conversation and starting over.
