At launch, the platform seems to support only 7 emoji reactions to messages but more will be added in the future. It is a good way to interact with people as you can show how you feel about a particular message using an emoji.

Also, although there have been bootleg versions of WhatsApp that helped increase the maximum number of users in a group, the company is making it officially available. Just over half of 1,000 people can now join a group. This improvement will likely increase group activities among communities.

The size limit upgrade also makes it possible to continue to use WhatsApp as your one-and-all communication platform. While the improved larger groups feature would be available soon, the emoji reactions and file size increase are going to come with the next version update.
