California, TechnoBusiness US (English Edition) ● Using the instant messaging platform WhatsApp developed by WhatsApp, LLC., a subsidiary of Meta Platform, Inc. (Nasdaq: FB) is simple and fun, especially free. Unfortunately, the features that are presented are still many limitations.
For example, users can only send files up to a maximum size of 16 MB, group video calls via cell phones are limited to eight people, and the number of members that can be added in one group is only 256 numbers.
But, that’s now! Soon, WhatsApp will answer all these shortcomings by developing four existing features. The four latest WhatsApp features include:
First, the reaction feature. Emoji reactions are coming to WhatsApp so users can voice their thoughts and feelings quickly without flooding the chat with new messages. Second, deletion of messages by group admins. Later group admins can delete inappropriate messages.
The next very tempting new WhatsApp feature, third, is file sharing. Previously, users could only share files of 100 MB, in the near future the capacity will be increased to 2 GB; a breakthrough that platform users have been waiting for.
Fourth, voice calls up to 32 people. Of course, the latest WhatsApp feature makes users happy because they can make group calls from only 8 people to 32 people.
WhatsApp has increased the maximum number of group members from 256 numbers to 512 numbers in one group.
Fifth, the number of group members. WhatsApp answers users’ wishes by increasing the maximum number of group members from 256 numbers to 512 numbers in one group. That means users can take advantage of WhatsApp groups more optimally.
The development of the latest WhatsApp feature was actually announced by the company’s management in mid-April. Certainty was re-delivered in more detail in early May. However, until now not all users have been able to enjoy the development of these features.
To note, WhatsApp was first developed by Brian Acton and Jan Koum in 2009 after both left Yahoo! In 2019, WhatsApp was acquired by Meta for US$19.9 billion.
Since then, the number of WhatsApp users has continued to grow until now there are more than 2 billion users spread throughout the world. The five largest countries that use WhatsApp are India, Brazil, the United States, Indonesia, and Russia.●
