WhatsApp recently announced a series of new updates, which would bring the messaging app more in line with its biggest competitors.

Among the new features are emoji reactions, allowing users to directly to a message without sending a message of their own. They also increased the limit for file sharing up to 2GB in size at a time, an increase from the previous limit of 100MB.

WhatsApp also announced that they would start allowing 512 participants in a group, up from 256. The move was a first step toward building “communities”, a long-term project which would see numerous chats grouped together.

With the new limit for chats, many chats which were previously inaccessible due to being full, now have room for hundreds of more participants, and popular Lubavitcher chats have seen the number of participants shoot up.
