A few days ago, we learned that WhatsApp has started to roll out the functionality of reactions to a message. Along with this feature, the company also allows you to add up to 512 people to a group and increasing the file upload limit from 100MB to 2GB.
According to WhatsApp, “One of the things that people ask us the most is to be able to add more people to the groups. Well, we are working on releasing an improvement that will allow you to add up to 512 people to a group »
The curious thing about this feature is that Brazilian users will have to wait a few more months to enjoy groups of 512 users, as the company explains. on your blog.
Based solely on our long-term strategy for Brazil, this last feature will only be implemented after being tested in other markets.
As the presidential elections will be held in October, this is part of the attempt by the Superior Electoral Court of Brazil to prevent the spread of fake news and disinformation through groupsas with other applications, such as Telegram.
Therefore, it is expected that once the elections are over, WhatsApp will be able to increase the number of users of the groups in Brazil and combine it with the rest of the countries.
